I was viewing this old post! Has anyone ever used Kent Marine, R/O Right?


Material Safety Data Sheet:
https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=2060130c02&view=att&th=146d360c9118961d&attid=0.1&disp=inline&safe=1&zw

Reclaims Natural Water Chemistry (GH) to Purified Water For Cichlid, Discus and Freshwater Aquariums

KENT MARINE R/O RIGHT is a concentrated dry formulation of dissolved solids and balanced electrolytes that returns the natural water chemistry to reverse osmosis, distilled or de-ionized water.

Directions
Dissolve the appropriate amount (see chart below) of KENT Marine R/O Right to every 10 gallons of purified water.

( I am trying to get a copy of the chart from KENT marine, the one on the container is to small to read and reproduce here) Got IT!



( It's still too hard to read and the container is to small to read and reproduce here)
 
Add during initial tank set-up and when performing water changes.

Use KENT Marine pH Stable to maintain water alkalinity or buffering capacity. Adjust aquarium pH with KENT Marine pH Control Minus or KENT Marine pH Control Plus as necessary.

I am not sure this is the same type of product, they all have most of the main ingredients as the formula and might be easier and cheaper than trying to mix it yourself.
 
Kent RO Right
CALCIUM CHLORIDE (10043-52-4) < 50
CARBONIC ACID, DISODIUM SALT (497-19-8) < 50
CARBONIC ACID, MAGNESIUM SALT (546-93-0) < 50
CARBONIC ACID, MONOSODIUM SALT (144-55-8) < 50

Kent pH Control Minus:
SODIUM HYDROGEN SULFATE (7681-38-1) < 95
SODIUM SULFATE (7757-82-6) < 95

Kent pH Control Plus:
SODIUM BICARBONATE (144-55-8)
SODIUM CARBONATE (497-19-8)
SODIUM TETRABORATE (1330-43-4)

Kent Marine Aquarium pH Buffer:
SODIUM BICARBONATE (144-55-8)
SODIUM CARBONATE (497-19-8)
SODIUM TETRABORATE (1330-43-4)

Kent pH Stable:
SODIUM BICARBONATE (144-55-8)
SODIUM CARBONATE (497-19-8)
SODIUM TETRABORATE (1330-43-4)

Kent pH Precise Neutral Controller:
PHOSPHORIC ACID, DISODIUM SALT (7558-79-4) < 0 - 100
PHOSPHORIC ACID, MONOSODIUM SALT (7558-80-7) < 0 - 100

Kent Marine-C:
Vitamin C supplement

It sates to be used in conjunction with Kent's pH products, up, down and pH Stabilizer, but would like to know if anyone has used them.

Thanks

Ron
