Just what is the proper amount of time to wait after mixing salt, R.O. water and adjusting temp before you can add replacement water during a water change? As I understand it introducing oxygen to the new batch of H2o is important. Just how long should this process take?

I mixed mine about 24 hours in advance. But others may have different opinion

Mike, That's just what I have done. I do use a 1200gph to circulate the brew.

Depends on what percentage you're doing. You should wait one beer for each 6.35743 percent change. ie a sixty percent water vhange should mix for ten beers.

Just my 2 cents.

Seriously. The larger the change, the larger the pre mix time.....

Or when all else fails, read the instruction on the back of the contained.
