    i have always wanted a supplement that provided the basic mg, cal,kh in the ratio that it is used in and then i spotted this product! I now mix it into my topup water and will only haveto test to see if my concentration satisfies sps demands. If not i just make concentration slightly stronger!. I will test weekly for this and also to see if i nerd yo adjust a specific element.this stuff dissolves well into ro and i didnt see any precipitate or milkyness

    ps. Apparently not supposed to mix with topup watet but i xould not find reason not to so this is the the route i am following unless someone could tell me why not to. The 60 g i mixed into my ro has dissolved thproughly and there is no sediment or precipitate at the bottom of the ro container. I think the mg being with kh and calcium is helping hold everything in suspension
