    How soon after making adjustments can/should you test?

    I added some calcium chloride to raise my calcium hardness and borax to raise my pH and am running the pump on a high speed to help mix it all in. How long should I keep running the pump and when can I test to see where my numbers are? Thanks.

    An hour is more than enough.
