Yes the drop checker seems very useful and at the very least safety net to alert to a potentially harmful situation.

I am almost certain I have phosphates in my water (have a test kit on the way), according to that post link you sent, that might screw my calcs a little.

Thanks for all your help! Got me on my way.
