recycling salt?

Postby lrood » Tue Dec 22, 2009 9:01 pm

Everytime I do a water change I wonder if there is any way to recycle the salt rather than watch it go down the drain. Maybe the costs and logistics of drying/purifiying, supplementing (and whatever else...) would just make it too difficult/expensive, but I wonder if anyone has ever heard of any efforts in this area?

your better off treating the water as a whole, unless you just dont want to put that much salt in your drain. matching the chemistry of NSW is difficult at best.

I agree,
treating the water as a whole FWIW is easier, but even then it's still not worth the effort; cost and time wise in the end.

The phyto tests at 0 nitrates once grown out. I don't have a phosphate test though. It seems to me that the phyto eats up all the nutrients. Like using 2/3F instead of F/2 :-) The grow out is just slightly longer. No?

You could probably recycle the salt as long as you sift it through a pump first. We have a pump we use to filter out algae from our pond and it works well. You wouldn't believe the amount of crud that is unseen to the naked eye! You could use one of those s or even siphon your water through the filter backwards using your pump's tank. Make sure to clean the line after! :)
