  • what alk does everyone keep their alk

    personally ive been keeping my alk at 9.9 dkh, and was curious what everyone else aimed for.

    I shoot for between 8 and 9 but I never let mine change more than about .2 dkh over a weeks period. Most of the time mine will stay rock solid for over a month. Keeping it stable is more important than the number you shoot for.

        Good move. Automation makes things easier to maintain consistency.

          I love 10 on the dKh scale, I figure this gives me a little room for some fluctuation should something go awry.
          Jason's right though, consistency is the key, esp. for alkalinity. Another good point on not bumping it up or down too fast. I learned this the hard way. I always move it up slowly now and if it's too high let it fall by itself over time.
