Be good to see the results of your tests.

My system at the start had Barium in excess of 400 through ICP, however around 5 months later and in this time I used a bottle of CS+, my Barium has come down to around 200 now. Just anecdotal information to help build up a picture.

As someone else said, I see very high barium on all my tests without any adverse effects. I suspect the test for barium is unreliable.

I too just received a test reading from ATI and high Barium. I went through my log and this is what i found.

I had been dosing Coral Snow- so i have since stopped that.
More importantly, i had my flow going through my reactor set at 85 then reduced to 75 ( still had overdose symptoms ) and now i have my reactor set to 55-56 and the OD symptoms are gone. This last change in flow rate to 55-56 was JUST before i sent water to ATI so it could be that the Zeolites do add Barium.

I suspect and read this through medical journals that Zeolites can release Barium.

My thinking is that the higher flow rate did two things increased a situation for OD, but also added more Barium then could participate out.

I will be running an addition test in a few weeks through ATI and provide and update on if my number for Barium has gone down. I want to give the tank some time to settle down before i run this test.

Will be back in a month or so i am guessing since these tests take forever. lol

When I shake my reactor I hear small pellets getting crushed could this be the cause of the barium. Are you using the magnectic or standard zeovit shaker
