"86" is the minimum, but many go a little higher to be on the safe side. I go to 88. Some strains are more resistant to heat than others, and while 86 will do the job the vast majority of the time, it is not a total guarantee. 2 weeks is the treatment length. By the end of the first week, all spots should be gone. The extra week is just to be sure. A third week is unnecessary. Adding salt is unnecessary as well, since the heat alone does the job. Many people say to vacuum every day - I do not vacuum, or change the water during the treatment. I haven't found it to be necessary.
