    Just want to find out how long must one wait after dosing before one can test to see the impact of the dosing amount?:blush:

    Depends on what you are dosing...
    Alk - 10 min
    Cal - +- 1 hour
    Magnesium - 24 hours (depending on what make you dose. Mag usually takes longer to fully dissolve in the water) if the mg contains mostly magnesium chloride, it takes longer than the ones that contain more magnesium sulphate.
    Strontium - immediately
    Anything else you want to dose?

    Well, calcium dosing products usually contain only food grade calcium chloride which dissolves rather quickly in a tank with high volume turnover, so i always give it about an hour before testing calcium just to be sure.
