SO if i add 3 grams of gypsum, 5 grams calc chloride 0 epsom and 2 baking soda (*edit TOTAL not per gallon)
This results in the following:
Calcium - 63
magnesium - 2
sodium - 21
chloride - 67
alkalinity - 5.52
Am i better off adding more sulfates and/or chloride to get more calcium? Or just leave it? Any other advice?
Like i mentioned above, i am curious about what mabrungard said so i am using his calculator to see what it comes back with. Obviously he /she has some great experience with this and maybe his calculator will present my outcome in a more positive way than EZ does.
