Just wondering who uses Kalkwasser and how they dose it?
Drip, just about 3 times aweek, yes I know infrequent but I am a busy dad with little time! Darn kids!
I drip it once a week. Luna
I stocked up on Pickling Lime--But since I changed to Oceanic Salt I havent needed it. I have a small coral load right now. My Ca stays high at about 480-500. Might have a fire sale on the lime if it never comes down!!!!
I voted kalk reactor but I really just put it in my topoff run by the tunze osmolator.
I bought a kalkstirrer a few weeks ago from greyseasaquatics.com and am using it for all of my topoff running through an osmolator.I have been very pleased with the results.knock on wood all params have been steady cal 480 dkh 11.It adds about 2.5 gals a day of ro/di.I have noticed mag levels going down so have been dosing to keep around 1500.I think i read somwhere that kalk will precipitate magnesium?anyone know?
Anyhow just wondering who else was dosing kalk.
No category in the poll for me. I siphon into my systems nightly to replace all evaporated water, using air line tubing.
Rayjay that's pretty much what i meant by drip method.
I drip it....varies depending on my levels, but on average about 1x a week. I dose also 2 part solution daily so I check my pH, kH and calcium couple times a week and base it on the results
