How do you think I feel Carl, if your test comes back bad then I have been successfully using dodgy salt for 5 years, I might have to go and lie down....... ;)

i know what i was letting myself in for and decided to do this on my own volition, it can't be that bad really not just because alf has used it for some time but there are others who have used it  i have read the feed back on it, however i will still test it, the thing is there are some people that just try to knock everything you say no matter what just as much as there are others who back you all the way

as I said before there's many ways round things and people like to point out that fact is all, if it works for you and others then so be it just be cautious and test all the way then you can prove on facts what it does and what the benefits are or vise versa  :icon_thumleft:

basically what i am doing is using a new salt i just thought i would let people know what i am doing, if any one can learn something from it then fine, i do see what your saying Nav and it has been taken onboard, tbh i wish i had just kept things to myself now i know you have not given me negative response but some one suggested that i could be using dishwasher salt, that isn't really positive feed back, anyway we are here so onwards and upwards

Personally I think that what you are doing Carl is what any good scientist does. Pose a question first. In this case I wonder what the composition of this marine salt is like. Secondly design an experiment to test your hypothesis. Then publish your results along with your conclusions and recommendations for further experimentation for peer review.

 

This process should be encouraged in everyone. I understand people's skepticism and skepticism is a healthy method of thinking and not a position however as yet we have no experimental data so negative comments right now are invalid.

 

Don't let anyone put you off Carl. What you're doing is something that will benefit the whole community whatever the results and this is something we should all support. I'm looking forward very much to what happens next. I'm sure that this salt can't be terrible or Alf would have had issues with it by now.
