All in one remineralization

Does anyone know of a product that adds both GH & KH to RODI water at the same time? At present, I use seaChem Equilibrium and Alk buffer to adjust.

Though, you can always mix what you have together in the ratio you want. Or make your own using Calcium Sulfate and Magnesium Sulfate to boost GH, and Baking soda or Potassium Bicarbonate for KH.

If you use a pre-blended product then you get the mix they think you want.
If you add each element separately you get the mix you want.

And, there is no one KH or GH that is universally believed to be the best to use. Each of us gets the pleasure of deciding for ourselves what we want each of them to be. Like a lot of the information in this hobby, there are still disagreements about what is "the best".

That is something that could be custom mixed if you knew the exact kh and gh that you were looking for but it is probably much easier to use separate kh and gh booster as the people above have already stated.
