Default 5-Star 5.2 ph Stabilizer...?

I know some of you all swear by this stuff. It's a "Food Grade Phosphate", usually ~$13 for 16oz. (?)

Worth it?

I voted "worth it" but it just arrived in the mail yesterday, so I don't have any "real" experience with it. I've been reading reviews of this stuff, and I haven't found anything negative about it. I'll be using it next weekend (3 sept), so I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm not sure if that's the brand I have, but my efficiency definitely increased when I started using it.
May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

I vote yes, especially if you have hard water.
