GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE By rob on 4/1/14rob would recommend this product to a friendI have used this product for years and have had great reults!
Fantastic Value By Andrew on 3/28/14Andrew would recommend this product to a friendWorks awesome in my ATO unit!!! I use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon and when the ATO kicks on it raises my PH from 7.8 to 7.9 after the water circulates. I will gradually increase the dosage to 1 teaspoon per gallon in about 2 months. I use Reef Crystal Pro for my salt and change about 10% of my water per week. I say about because I break the water changes up into 2-3 small water changes of 3-4 gallons at a time. My Red & Green Goniopora are like grumpy old men and don't like any changes.
Best in the business By Stephen on 2/28/14Stephen would recommend this product to a friendI've been using seachem kalk, not any more. This stuff is crazy pure!
BRS Kalkwasser By Steven on 2/22/14Steven would recommend this product to a friendGreat product from Bulk Reef Supply. I have used other Kalkwasser products and strait pickling lime. BRS's Kalkwasser is by far the best I have used, it has the least amount of parcipitate that settles out.

Thank You BRS!!

I've added kalkwasser to my ATO with the ratio of 1 teaspoon per gallon of ATO volume. It doesn't seem to dissolve, just settle out after a couple hours. I don't run a circulation pump in my ATO as it's only 7 gallons and I'm filling it every week. Would a circulation pump help dissolve the kalk? Would you recommend the circulation pump only coming on with the top off pump? I've read you shouldn't circulate kalk when it's in an ATO, is this true?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Adam,
You specifically do not want to circulate kalk as you will actually deplete it by doing so (your continuously adding co2 which will deplete it). Its normal to have some sediment when you mix kalk and nothing to worry about. Give it a good mix when you put it in and then just allow it to settle and use it.

I don't have a,auto top off, how would I dose then?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Rick,
If you don't have an auto top off (which I would highly recommend) then your going to need a kalk dripper of some sort. Check out this video we made on making your own kalk dripper.

how do i know how much to put in my ATO reservior? is there a calculator like the ones for calcium and alkalinity on BRS?
Bulk Reef Supply Kalk can't be added to raise your calcium and alkalinity like you would with two part because the pH swing would be so significant (hence no calculator option). When it comes to kalk you can add up to 2 teaspoons per gallon of top off water but I would start with 1/2 teaspoon. If that isn't enough to keep up with your consumption then you can go ahead and kick it up a notch until you find that sweet spot.
Kalkwasser - This will be used for daily dosing to maintain calcium and alkalinity levels as well as elevate the tanks pH. Because this product does elevate the pH, it is important to dose slowly in small amounts. This product is designed to be used daily to continually replace calcium and alkalinity as it is consumed and not to make large adjustments.
Calcium Chloride - This is used to make larger adjustments to calcium levels. This product has no effect on the tank's pH so it is possible to make larger changes to calcium levels in single doses.
Sodium Bicarbonate - This is used to make larger adjustments to the tank's alkalinity levels. Sodium bicarbonate does have a small temporary lowering effect on the tank's pH. It is possible to make relatively large adjustments to the tank's alkalinity without a major impact on the tank's pH but it is wise to monitor the tank's pH while dosing.
Magnesium Mix - Dosed occasionally to maintain magnesium levels. Maintaining correct magnesium levels helps prevent calcium and alkalinity from precipitating and makes maintaining correct parameters much easier.
