    The addition of ZEObak, ZEOstart and Sponge Power can be started now.

    ZEObak: 5 ml per 100 liters/25 gallons
    ZEOstart: 10 ml per 100 liters/25 gallons
    Sponge Power: 3 ml per 100 liters/25 gallons
    Day 2 and Day 3
    I kept reading from previous posts thought id be adding 4 or 5 drops of zeobak everyday for first 2 weeks followed by 4 or 5 drops twice a week but on 14 day cycle section above it says
    5 ml per 25 gallons .... I bought a 5ml bottle of zeobak thinking it would last a little while but with the 5ml per 25 gallons i'll be dosing 4 of those $30 dollar bottles everyday for the first two weeks?
    Just need a little clarification on dosing please. Haven't started it yet.

          So I postponed the start and waited for a couple of zeovit products. Now it's been past the 14 days and continued to add
          zeostart, zeobak and sponge power as directed. For my first zeolite exchange should I change half or 90% of the zeolite
          and when I do so do I just add the supplements daily for 14 days?

            The first zeolite material is retained in the first 4 weeks. Please replace 90% of the old ZeoVit material and keep about 10% of the old material in the reactor. After each ZeoVit dose change, take ZeoBac every day for 10 days, otherwise twice a week . After replacing the material, the remaining amount does not need to be changed.
