Interesting. I've been using Fritz blue box for about 8 months without any issues. I don't let it mix that long though. I get the water up to temp, add the salt until it's at 35 and do the water change

how exactly do you add your salt? Ive always weighed out what i need to get 30 ppt and add all of that and then slowly add more to rise up

I just slowly dump some in. I don't measure. I'll dump like 3 big scoops in and wait for it to dissolve. Then I'll do some more. I make about 20 gallons at a time. I know how much it takes before I get to 35, then I slowly add until it hits 35.

Huh, that’s odd. I have been using Fritz (blue box) lately. It mixes so fast for me. I put 20-21 cups of salt for 40 gallons of water, then it’s done mixing in 30 minutes to 1 hour. I just use a cheap pond pump to mix it.
