Never tried this. But looks interesting. But not sure how different these are vs 2 part. 

2 part leaves magnesium and trace elements behind.  This seems to be very similar to the balling method from Europe

Isn’t there 2 part mag? Trace elements should be replenished with water changes? Or am I in a different book?

Pulled the trigger today. Marine Depot has a special for January where if you buy one of the mail in tests you get the larger size of chemicals for half off. Still deciding how I am going to start dosing it. Don’t want to spend $300 on a second DŌS...

So update to this I got another dos and it will be online as soon as a cable comes (looks like Tuesday). I am sending my first test out. They give you 3 vials. You register on their web site and mail them in. One bottle of RODI and the others filled with tank water. Curious if that is the way the other mail in testing places work??  It can take a couple of weeks, but I still need to get some containers and such so no big deal. Anxiously awaiting the results now!

I have done the Triton lab tests and you only send two vials of tank water, no RODI. I am not sure of the Aqua Medic Test... Maybe @watdachuck can fill us in. 

Cant wait to see what info you get back!

Lol, I wanted to mix 10 liters at a time.  Couldn't find 10 liter or 3 gallon jugs so I had to get the 5's. Liked the price though.

I’ve used those containers. They are nice.
