Lol..But, Sazzy, this does seem complicated. I have edited my last post and added the information confirming that KH will not indeed be reduced via the use of CO2.:) At least, if you understand this one, it won't be that complex as you think.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Saz:

I have read through this thread and it "sounds like one of my long winded posts" (even though I try to stick with the basics)!

The "way that I think of" Kh (although simplistic*) is the quantity of calcium present in the water.

The "way that I think of Gh (although once again simplistic*) is the quantity of calcium and magnesium present in the water.

PS:

* Please keep as I refer to me “in your brain” my main post.

The hobbyist’s definition of hardness varies significantly from the populate definition of hardness.

The populate definition, in my words of softness (ie. lack of hardness), is what type of water makes my soaps work?

My definition (although again simplistic) of softness is water (H2oO) which is virtually free of minerals (whether they be calcium, sodium, potassium, etc)

Ron, I have the feeling this thread is going to be another ongoing debatable one. After we have gone through with salts, water changes, carbon and HITH, this is the next one we can simply try to figure out.

Wow..I'm impressed by how this forum is doing well and now these complicated subjects are also appearing and can be fun to learn with.
