Mg/l

Hello guys,

Need some help on finding out how much jbl silicate remover to add to my dd cannister reactor?My tank is a 260 ltr with no sump.It says on the instructions book to add a max 1 mg/l

How do i convert 1mg/l to grams or kgs as i will need to measure this out to add to the reactor.

Many thanks in advance guys.

Rob.

1mg per litre (1mg/l) so for your setup it would be 260mg which is a seriously small amount lol. Are you reading the instructions correctly?

Just checked the instructions. The pack comes in a 400g box so 360mg (1mg per litre) seems a very low dose! For info there are 1000mg to a single gram! Can't help you any further than that mate. Watch your alk as this stuff will drop it.

Rob have you tested your silica level ?

What was the result ?

I strongly believe not to add or reduce anything unless you have tested fir it first.
