So I am replacing a smaller acid neutralizer with a larger one. Bought it at the local water store, had a nice chat with Wolfgang. He loaded 3 bags of calcite and one box of Magnesium mix. He told me which goes in first but by the time I got around to installing it I forgot. I think he said, "gravel -> 3 bags of calcite -> box of mag mix. Is this right?

Why not simply make a telephone call back to the water store. Seems as you already know the name of the guy to talk to!! – Michael Karas May 5 '13 at 13:50
Yeah I would but they close at noon on Saturday and are closed on Sunday. I was just trying to get it done before Monday. – Jason H May 5 '13 at 15:17

So I called them today and the order is:

gravel -> box of mag mix -> bags of calcite.

You might want to draw a picture and tape it to the device. – Chris Cudmore Jun 5 '13 at 20:37
