Have you figured out how many points your alkalinity drops per day?
When dosing 2 part, you want to look at alk to figure out your daily dosage. Dont worry about calc for the time being. Once you figure out how much your alk drops per day, and the dose to fix it each time- you found your dosing amount.
After you figure out your dosing amount- you find out where your calc is at, and what you would like it to be.
If your calc is lower than what you would like- you will have to do an independant dose to raise your calc to what you want it at. Get the calc where you want it- without adding the second part.
The next day- dose the 2 part, equally, at the amount you have figured out from your alk dropping. This process should keep the alk/calc both right where you want them. Neither should get too high or low. Might take some time to test/tweek, but it shouldnt take long to get it down.
If you are dosing the 2 part acording to calc instead of alk- you will get high alk.
With your alk high right now, you might want to wait it out for the alk to drop before you use the instructions above. During this time, test your alk daily. Pay attn. to how much it drops daily. This will give you a good starting point to figure out your dosing schedule.
