Rated 5 out of 5 by bluesloversrv Works Great
I cannot use my tap water because the quality is not good, so I use RO water and use this product to add the right amount of minerals to the water. It's easy to use, and it works very well.

Works great however...
Adding RO Right only adds electrolytes to the water. You need to control the PH and add a PH buffer. Kent marine who produce RO Right suggest their PH buffer but the natural PH buffer is sodium bicarbonate. There is a excellent android app called “ Fish Tank Hardness” that has all the calculations for RO Right bicarbonate and both dGH and dKH so you can add Ro right to achieve a desired TDS or add RO Right to achieve a desired hardness value. It calculates both. But be aware the buffer bicarbonate will slightly raise PH as well as acting as a buffer. I use this app and its so simple I’ve checked it against my TDS meter ad it is correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I needed the product and used it successfully
Since I've been able to buy Reverse Osmosis Water at a local health store, and use it in my office 55 gallon freshwater aquarium, because the tap water in my city is very hard. I became concerned when I learned that the fish need some of the minerals they need in their water. When scanning your website I noticed your stocking of this product, RO Right, and ordered it and have used it. I'm glad I found it and am satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4fish R/O Right sets the correct hardness
Due to a change in local water supply, I switched to Reverse Osmosis water. I set the correct hardness using R/O Right and couldn't be happier. I know my fish are in better water, too. If you experience "mystery" fish deaths and diseases after a water change, it could be a change in local water chemistry. I will never go back to the municipal water supply.
R/O Right is very easy to measure - chart is on the bottle. I have mixed community freshwater aquariums - so set the hardness to 8 degrees (low for barbs, but a bit high for tetras). I use filter media that lowers hardness just a bit, so this measurement works. Our local water supply had General Hardness readings that ranged from 9 degrees - up to over 14 degrees of hardness (I stopped counting drops and added a water softening pillow that time) - plus I had no idea the dissolved metals/solids content. Now with each water change, I know my fish are getting exactly what they need. I still add a water conditioner to aid in reducing stress.
