I figured mine to be 75 Gallons, and start with 1/2 a box.
Make sure you mix it before dumping in the table, I use a 5 gallon bucket. Its really hard to mix the hard stuff later.

I run about the same ratio as steel 35. 40 gallons and 1/4 box.

I stir the water in 5 gallon pail then slowly add soda.

Depending on the PH of your tap water you will need approx 2- 55ox box's (Mix ratio .8 oz per gal x 55 oz = 70-75 gal / box) Get some PH test strips from the local pharmacy or off of fleebay, you want a PH of 10 or higher - I start at 11 (for those who were throwing spitballs and not paying attention in science class just tear off a PH strip dip it in the mixed solution then compare the color to the color chart)

Subbing so I can come back and check it later. I just toss a box into my 6x12 when I notice rust starting to form. lol
