Does it work.well or is it. A biger pain then its worth ?
For cal washer
are you talking about kalk? lol
Kalkwasser is what it actually is and used in your top off shouldn't be a problem at all I'm actually considering doing the same.
P.S. nice help there fellas
Yes kalk sorry lol I'm looming to.do that. Then set up my cal.reactor
yea i put kalk in my auto top of water and i my tank has been doing pretty good since i started just keep an eye on ph and alk
What kind of ATO? A float switch?
I did kalk through a gravity fed float for several months at the end of last year.. it was messy - if I were to do it again I'd have the float over a high current area of sump. I had it in a mellow spot and the kalk built up a film on the top of the water that caked the float switch and required a lot of cleaning.
Before that float, I used a kalk reactor hooked up to a Tunze ATO. This was ok but I didn't like that it would dump a lot of kalkwasser at once sometimes depending on evaporation rate.
What I am about to start doing (again) is drip it through a Kent IV at night. I think will work best for me.
Just my experience.
How much is the Kent thing u are talkin about
$25 or so. Kent aqua doser 1400ml.
