    Ok why do I have to add more and more MG?
    In the beginning I added 20 spoons of MG and it wacked the MG up 150ppm. Now adding 60 spoons only boosts it by 30ppm.
    Below you can see how I have tried adding the supplements to get my mg up

    Q. Why do you try to increase Mg to unnatural high levels?

    If you have a container, and in this container you can only fit 50 balls. Let say you have 60 red balls and 70 blue balls, at the end of the day you will only be able to place a combination in the container with a grand total of 50 balls.

    Same with dKh, Mg, and Calcium you can only fit a certain amount in the water... hope this make sense... tried to explain it in the most basic way possible.
