    This is a different tank - where the removed ones go ;)

    Searching for a better RO system

    Sediment filters don’t lower TDS. Dissolved solids flow right through them. They remove other solids and protect the membrane. I recently added a very big, whole house sediment filter. I know that after I power cycle my current system it flushes and the TDS after that is < 10. Sometimes, it is 1.

    Searching for a better RO system

    Both drinking and DI. If that system isn’t made to handle dirty water, then what is? How do you get the most TDS out of the water before DI? More membranes? More pressure? Better membranes? I’m stumped.

    Searching for a better RO system

    I have had an iSpring RO500 for several months now. It claims a 2:1 product/waste ratio (I don't know how) and 500 GPD. It comes with a neat faucet that shows the TDS of the product water. But, I'm not very happy with it and I spent too much on it to not be happy. The output TDS fluctuates...

    PG&E Planned Power Outage

    This is a good start to keep the oxygen levels up: Cobalt Aquatics DC USB Rechargeable Air Pump https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GRL366W/

    Pissed off at PG&E

    There’s a difference between accidents and covering your ass from lawsuits. In either case, it’s always on me to have a backup. There’s no doubt about that. But, it’s a shameful thing that they’re doing these planned safety shut offs. They spend all their money on bonuses for the top brass...

    Pissed off at PG&E

    Power was restored and everything is still alive. Xfinity, however, is still down.

    Eric's 40 gallon adventure.

    Just caught one of my nems with its foot on the glass and all of its tentacles through the overflow grille.

    Pissed off at PG&E

    We know that most of the company is full of hard working good people. It’s the suits making the decisions that need a slap.

    Pissed off at PG&E

    Just need to vent. They shut off power last night at 10 pm and won’t restore it until tomorrow at noon. I’m doing my best to keep things warm and oxygenated but it’s going to be difficult. I have a whole house generator on the way but it’ll be weeks before they install it. PG&E needs to be...

    Looking for Chaeto

    You’re very welcome. My starter Chaeto was not doing well until I got a chunk of this stuff from @Mozby. It’s been great since then. Good to meet you too. Now, go update your tank journal with pics of your awesome setup ;)

    Manual soda ash dosing

    Way too much work ;) I’d rather spend hours thinking of a way to not work.

    Manual soda ash dosing

    Considered that, but it might precipitate there leaving residue. It does seem like a good way to do it though.

    Manual soda ash dosing

    Yes, I poured into a high flow area. The alk got down to 5.4 (I know, I know, this is a softie/nem tank that’s not tested often). I added 30 ml yesterday which should raise it to 6.4. But I’d like to raise it 2 more a bit slower.

    Manual soda ash dosing

    For my 55g I need to increase the alkalinity about 3 dKh. I don’t have a dosing system for that tank an yesterday, when I poured 10ml of soda ash solution, there were a lot of white particles. Is there a way to do some kind of siphon drip that will do about 60 ml slowly over 3-4 days?

    Return pump state

    Thanks. I do have the alerts setup around power usage limits and I know they would catch something like a snail getting stuck in the pump. Was just wondering about the slow effects of accumulated dirt.
