    And I have heard of a pool product called pH+ to be all sodium sulfite. I don't know anything more because I haven't researched it yet.

    pH+ is Sodium Carbonate - not Sodium Sulfite.

    yep they have one that says acid+ and I think that one is sulfite technical grade (good enough)
    For $6/2lb is not bad

    ph+ is carbonate, also technical quality so it could be used.

    Since these are supposed to be used ni pools (human consumption) no heavy metals are allowed.

    I'm afraid I have no answer for you as I'm not up on my developer chemistry, but I think you have a great opportunity here to do an experiment with this formulation and then you'll be able to share your results with the rest of us However, I'm surprised that the answer isn't on the internet somewhere!
    Is there anything donuts can't do.
