Pros: Higher PH compared to a calcium reactor

Cons: It's not always in stock

I guess I don't exactly need to provide a review seeing how there is 158 reviews already but ESV is the best. Props to ESV for making such a quality product. It's nice how you don't have to dose magnesium as it's already in the two part.

Problem with B-Ionic Alk

Cons: You have to mix it

So I have purchased this set of Alk and CA a few times and everything mixed well when adding RO water. However this time I noticed a big rock of Alk sitting in the 1 gallon jug. After adding RO water and shaking the jug for 15 mins, it’s still tumbling inside the jug. After letting the Alk sit for a week, the Alk rock has slightly dissolved. Still tumbling inside the jug. Will be calling Marine Depot for further follow up. Not Normal.
