Hi Ricky,
Thanks for the link and advice, im understanding all this a bit more! ive never had to worry about all this before as i just use HMA water for my L number plecs and do nothing else to the water. Will check all the parameters of my tap water before i go messing about with it!!!! But will need to add some hardness I think.
Cheers
Graham

Boots claim that epsom salts is no longer available for sale and has even stopped being manufactured.
