Apologies, I was trying to explain the dose needed for PH 8 to 8.02. Which is roughly 1 hour of dosing. Historically the hour where Ph was 8 to 8.02 the dose would be 5.8ml
After I tore out the CO2 scrubber, the dose for the same PH (lights on for both) dose is 2.3 mls roughly an hour.
My total 24 hour dose has gone from 180mls to 68mls.
The goal of this post was to solve the consumption of 6dk daily.
If you are talking about pH effects, the buffering of seawater is higher at higher pH and alk and lower at lower pH and alk.
6 dKH per day in 60 gallons is a lot of material. Tens of grams of solid calcium carbonate per day. You would see it in a skimmer collection cup. That's why I do not believe it is the explanation.
