Default H20 Ocean Pro

I was just wondering for those of you who use H20 Ocean Pro. Does it still leave a residue in the bottom of your mixing containers? I've just finally have been able to clean my brute with HCL, vinegar didn't even touch it.

We have had absolutely no problems with H2Ocean. There is never a residue in the mixing barrel.
However it doesn't sit in the barrel for more than a week once it's mixed & we use every drop of it.
Where as with IO it would sit for the same amount of time, & there would always be a gross residue on the; Blowers, Pump & Heaters...

I’m using Red Sea Blue bucket and have had consistent mixing results each time. I would consider trying Brightwell neo marine, however there is no LFS carrying it in my area.
