    Nice Todd. I do something similar with a Kent IV doser setup and kalk. What are you dosing?

    Thanks,

    Either Pickling LIme (Kalc), CaCL, Mg, Baking soda, Borax, or a combination.

    Usually daily a little Mg, and either Kalc, of CaCl and baking soda.

    Makes sense. The hardest thing about it for me is filling it up every day. But it works great.

    If mine were knocked into the sump, it would be a bit more like the way I was dosing- with a 16oz plactic cup, mixing each dose in tank water and dumping right back in my sump!
