Hi everyone...

My Milwaukee SMS 122 controller other equipment to allow auto dosing of the CO2 is arriving tomorrow!!!!!!!!!

My question to you all is how can you tell what your CO2 in the water is? Is there a test? Do I need it?

What is a good pH to strive for....

Tap water is pH 7.8, KH is 125, GH is 143.

Thanks a bunch!

Mike
