Hi everyone. My Alkalinity seems to keep raising, but not in line with my Calcium. I know that if Alk gets too high, Ca will drop. My Alk is testing at 14.2 and my Ca at 415. I run a calcium reactor and have Kalk dosed with my ATO (about 3 gallons a day). Should I be concerned? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Make sure your MG is 1350-1440ppm range or you may get strange inconsistencies with ALK and CA testing.
