OK, el cheapo, here. After some time research and personal deliberation, I have chosen to add some turbo calcium to my system. Ya see, I had a calcium reactor that appeared to be running as designed and realized that although the it appeared to be doing it's job, the effluent was clogged, so no additives where being dosed. The calcium in the system dropped to around 200 with an alk of 13 DKH.
So, I dosed the calcium... no big deal right? Well, I'm a DIYer from the word go and extremely "frugle" or as Shultz says, "cheap". My research took me from the purchase of Turbo Calcium to a few other choices, they included the following:
Dowflake-harder to find, not as potent(up the dose to achieve desired effects), but pure as turbo calcium, inexpensive
Peladow-Easier to find, equally as potent as turbo calcium, inexpensive, but a 20 min drive away(I'm impatient, too)
Prestone Driveway Heat-repackaged peladow, cheap, and close(at autozone)
I chose the driveway heat and added 17 tsps of it today(i'll post the results tomorrow of another ca test). Anybody use this before???
