    I just got my 2nd shipment of Triton core7 containers.
    1. Leaked a lot
    2. Leaked a little
    3a. Half the liquid gone.
    3b. Half the liquid gone.

    The 1 st shipment of Triton arrived to me in milk containers but did not leak.
    This was my initial set up of the triton system.
    I ordered the 2nd shipment and expected the bottles NOT to leak but I have like half the product I paid for.

    I'm angry!
    I said I'm ****** but it got edited with asterisks.

    If this does not get corrected I'm going with ATI Essentials.

    I need product that is in stock regularly and does not leak.
    It would be nice to order triton when I need it and have it arrive whole with no leaks but that seems to be a challenge for triton.
    Product is very seldom in stock and when it is in stock and you are one of the luck ones who gets to order it, the product arrives damaged with leaks and you only get half of what you paid for.
    On top of that, the retailer can't just replace your order because there is no stock.

    This is bad Triton.
    How are you going to addrrss this in a permanent solution?

    Anyone here use ATI Essentials?
    How much do you dose?

    If I'm reading correctly, for my 110 gallon mixed reef I should be dosing just over 100ml of AIT Essentials per day?
    That is a LOT of dosing to start.

    I'm currently dosing 14ml of Triton per day (still adjusting my dose but I'm in the ballpark).

    I use diy voss bottles for dosing containers with Triton.
    What would I have to use with ATI? I don't have room for 5 gallon buckets.

    Ati is very diluted compared to triton.

    That might be correct. 36ml of ati 1 increases the the kh of 100l by 1 dkh

    I'm using ATI Essentials with very good results, but you do have to dose alot because it's diluted. I use one gallon water jugs. I'm dosing 60 mls in a 50 gallon sps tank

    Yeah, I have a 200 gallon system. I looked into ATI also but at that rate it would be cheaper to do saltwater changes.

    I'm dosing 30ml of each Triton element a day.

    The bottles come in 500ml and 1000ml.
    The 1000ml bottles make 10L of solution. I have them in walmart stackable water jugs in my closet. Fill my dosing containers as needed.

    Are you saying you mix the ati solution with rodi? So each 1000ml bottle actually makes 10 liters?

    Thank You, that makes alot more sense. If Triton hasn't fixed this problem by the time my solution runs out I am switching over to ATI. I have enough for another month now.

    That's a whole lot of liquid to store and a whole lot to dose everyday!

    I truly hope Triton gets on their "A" game soon because I don't want to have 5gal buckets hanging around to store solution and 1gal jugs as dosing containers.
