    I'm pretty sure the instructions say straight into sump in a high flow area.

    Definitely add it straight to sump or tank in high flow area. I have a RSM 250 and it says to add it to the right rear chamber which houses a return pump.

    I add it straight to the sump where the overflow enters. I tried mixing it with ro but the seems to cloud the water, but not so when i add it straight to the sump.

    It is an effecitve supplement, but you need to test your parameters regularly, same as any other supplemental schedule.
