Hi,

Who can think of a way to dose liquid KH or alk buffer using a dosing pump?

It's easy to find solutions (no pun intended) for marine tanks OR powders for fresh water tanks. But I've not found a liquid product for fresh water.

My tap water is 1KH so I need to dose alkalinity buffer, or kh+, into the tank to prevent gradual decline in PH.

I use a fully automated water change system & auto top off system so I'd love to integrate a liquid KH/Alk dosing using my peristaltic pumps.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
Andrew

If you can find powder, you can make a liquid by dissolving it in water ;P
And 99% of the marine liquids is nothing else than the same stuff already dissolved in RO water, so you can use them, but check for additives off course.
If you really want an easily available liquid. ADA brighty K raises KH just enough and adding Potassium to the water.
