Actually I have been using Dolomite for the past two or three weeks and
after about two days it has all dissolved, and my plants are doing better
than ever (my water has a GH of 14ppm out of the tap and even lower KH).

One other place that I saw CaCO3  this past weekend was at the beer/wine
making store.  The had 500g packets for about $2-$3.  If my dolomite wasn't
working as well as it is, I would have picked some up.

YMMV, Daniel
