    Got a slight dilemma. Magnesium is at 1200 but any attempt to increase the magnesium has no impact on magnesium but does increase hardness. I can’t increase any further as it may shock the system. Any suggestions on what to do?

    looking on their site, it looks like 100ml / 100 litres will raise concentration from 1200 to 1300

    does that sound right ?

    Possibly. I’ll check it out. My concern is that my Duncan’s are shrinking and that Mg is the root cause. At least here’s hoping but need to figure a way to recover them otherwise I’ll loose what we’re once blossoming.
