So i tested the potassium 2ml 2x a day, I know it hasent been a week yet but it has not moved off 290. I have noticed that there is a outbreak of hopefully just diatoms on sand rock glass pumps. Po4 is .009 po3 is 10ppm.

Have you already cross check the level with a different kit to make sure yours is working well. If the test kit result is correct dose it more often per day but allow a minimum dosing break between the additions of 2 hours.

Do you use K-Balance or K-Balance Strong ?
If possible please post a picture of the bottles label.

Please also check the potassium level of your salt mix.

Just check the K+ level of the fresh mixed salt any you will know the level. Make sure to check with the right salinity as this will have a impact.

If the K+ level does not increase dose 2 ml 4 x daily but keep a minimum dosing break of 2 hours between the additions.

If the bottle is empty I would recommend you to get K-Balance Strong as it has a higher K+ concentration compared to Standard.

So i have the k strong on its way. I tested fresh salt water and i am getting a reading of 290. What confusesme is all this dosing and its not budging off the 290. I am going to bring some water to my lfs this weekend to have them test potassium maybe it's my kit I dunno.

If the salt has really such a low concentration if would be better to use a different salt with a adequate K+ level.
