    I have an almost full jar or Sea_lab Kalkwasser from a few years back. Lime green label, believe it is No. 14. I do nto have the instructions for dosing though,a nd cannot find any online. Anyone have the info? I would like to be able to use it instead of buying new.

    Generally you will want to add about 1 tsp. per gallon and mix. Let the mixture settle. It will form a layer of sediment on the bottom and a crust on the surface. What you will want to drip into your tank will be the solution above the layer of sediment. I have never used the product you mentioned, but the directions for Kent Kalkwasser say to add between 1/8 tsp. to 2 tsp. per gallon.

    If I'm not mistaken, Sea Lab #14 is not kalk but a ph regulator
