Sodium metabisulfite in Bru'n Water 5.3
« on: August 28, 2018, 02:08:33 AM »
Greetings,

I see in the new Bru'n Water there is a section for sodium metabisulfite.  If I enter 15 ppm which is .42 g, the sodium and sulfate increases are not added to the totals for sodium and sulfate.  Should the sodium and sulfate values generated by sodium metabisulfite be ignored?
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

Oh boy!! Those components are supposed to be included in the totals. I guess there will be a version 5.4 coming out in the coming months.

Sorry for the error. Do manually add the SMB contributions to the water profile for now. The pH depression effect of SMB is properly added to the pH calculation, so don't worry about that.

Rob, you were just luckily next in line. There are still plenty of users waiting and it does take time to deliver all those files since my email provider won't let me send out more than a hundred messages a day, each with a nearly 1 meg file attachment.

Sorry for the delay to all the great Bru'n Water supporters.
