    Hi folks.
    Do any of you add anything to your water?
    I'm not talking about vision or like products. I know some add vinegar or ecover. Personally I currently add nowt!

    I do use traffic film remover on first cleans but that is sprayed directly onto the glass and frames.

    Just wanted to know the mileage.

    GG4 has been mentioned on other forums. The poster said it doesn't alter the TDS and works like 'vision'. He stopped using GG4 and is using 'vision' now as far as I know.

    It has to effect TDS. Simple as that.

    10ml in 500l = 20ppm

    That's a lot of PPM and I for one have spent too long perfecting my water to add anything to it. Tried it. Convinced it did not work. Back to pure only.

    Still put GG4 in my trad bucket :thumbsup:

    you probably have a point there lee,as one of the testers you tried everything with good results but i think in your case it would have been better to turn the glass hydrophobic without leaving a film/layer on the glass

    I don't understand why you need it if you don't get complaints leave things as they are.

    i don't think additives are a must have for people,you can get along fine just useing pure,but in the same context adding to pure can give great results from either an added shine or just cleaner glass and framework,
    i could go on and on
    yes i add things to the tank and have done for years-i'd never use just pure again,whilst some will never use these things its becoming more commonplace now
    just over a year ago i was nearly lynched on this forum for suggesting adding additives to the tank as the idea was profound to many,now its accepted as an alternative to pure
