    Kalkwasser stirrer: How to make it drip evenly?

    I have a Deltec Kalkwasser stirrer, and frankly the design is pretty much the same as most Kalkwasser stirrers out there. I feed it with a dosing pump, about 200 ml per hour. The problem is that the water level rises inside the Kalkwasser reservoir and suddenly squirts out several ml at the...

    Kalk stirrer - when to stir?

    I use an Avast K2 Kalk stirrer and a peristaltic pump to feed kalk to my system. One thing I'm not sure about though, is when to run the stirrer in relation to the pump? Should I run the stirring before running the feed pump, after running the feed pump, or during the feed pump run? I can see...

    Calcium reactor and Kalkwasser reactor/stirrer

I’ve been considering a calcium reactor but my pH is already low 7.8 and I’ve heard they can lower pH. Can...

    Utah TLF Kalk Reactor

    Two Little Fishies Kalk Reactor. This thing has been collecting dust for sometime now. I’ve converted all my systems over to 2-part so I have no use for anymore. I’d like to get $45 out of it. I’ll pay for the shipping.

    Kalk stirrer fed from display tank?

    My tank is getting to a point where it uses more calcium than I can supplement via adding kalkwasser to the ATO water. I've seen where most people just set up a constant flow of RO water through the stirrer but I'd just like to set up a constant flow doser to suck tank water and pass it through...
