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 the logic to all three, so, I'm a bit unsure of what the right answer is here. Anyone?

I run mine 5 minutes out of every hour. Just hoping this extendeds the life of the motor is all. Fully saturated kalk water is 12+ph and it seems to maintain that level for me anyhow at that internal. Avast does recommend running it continuously, but I got a C- in school for: listens well and follows directions...
