    I have ......

    It produces a very dry 'mineral' finish and lacks the sweet creamy flavours I attribute to calcium chloride. Fruit flavours do pop though.

    i don't like it 100% but blended with other (higher calcium) waters it isnt too bad.

    What he said... It's a decent solution to the problem and is very low maintenance. Better is achievable IMHO but with much more faff and effort.

    What was the GH of the resulting water, just out of interest?

    GH is 135 according to numbers posted by someone from the manufacturer on HB, 100 Magnesium and 35 Calcium.KH is zero (it uses a citrate buffer instead, roughly equivalent to a KH of 35). Given the comments, it would be interesting to try it with chloride instead of sulphate.
