Quick Overview

Dosing with BRS Bulk Kalkwasser is one of the very few proven, effective methods to add calcium and alkalinity with a single product while maintaining pH at an affordable price. Commonly used in conjunction with auto top off systems. BRS Bulk Kalkwasser is produced with the highest quality material available to the aquarium industry.


USING KALKWASSER


  1. Before dosing Kalkwasser, it is necessary to test and raise calcium and alkalinity levels to their correct levels. We suggest using Calcium Chloride and Sodium Bicarbonate. Kalkwasser should not be used for this because, in large doses, it will significantly raise pH.

  2. Use the BRS Reef Calculator to determine proper bicarbonate and calcium chloride amounts to adjust alkalinity and calcium.

  3. Maintain new levels with Kalkwasser using an Auto Top Off System.

See Full Details for more information on Kalkwasser, Calcium Chloride, Sodium Bicarbonate and Magnesium Mix and their effects on your tank.

Full Details

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.

  • Good Stuff By Jeff on 1/26/2015

    Quality product, great price. Easy to use when mixing in with your ATO. Have heard some people say Kalk eats the aqualifter pump, but I've used mine for years with Kalk without any issues at all.
  • Thanks BRS By Thomas on 12/30/2014

    Another great product and a great price.
  • Kalk powder 22.5# "5 gallon" pail--good deal By Michael on 11/27/2014

    The stuff somehow even smells cleaner, somehow, than Mrs Wages.
    On sale, this was one of the least expensive sources I found.
    I went with my BRS pals because they have been consistent supporters of Michiganrwefers.com.
    Glad I did.

    ...be careful if you are "upgrading" or are replacing old product--your pH may elevate more quickly than you expect. Glad I did...
  • I Love Kalkwasser By June2881 on 10/16/2014

    I am dosing 2 tablespoons of kalkwasser mixed with 1/3 cup of vinegar and 2 gallons of RODI water into my 200 gallon sps tank and I couldn't be happier. I'm running zeovit which requires natural levels of elemtents and using kalkwasser to maintain 400 ca and 7.5 alk couldn't be any easier. I highly recommend dosing kalkwasser to anyone with low ph and lots of corals.

    Good,
  • Great, useful for all types of applications By Trevor on 4/21/2014

    I use this kalk for killing aiptasia and dosing top-off water.

    Works great, everyone should have a jar of this.
  • GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE By rob on 4/1/2014

    I have used this product for years and have had great reults!
  • Fantastic Value By Andrew on 3/28/2014

    Works 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 2/27/2014

    I've been using seachem kalk, not any more. This stuff is crazy pure!
  • BRS Kalkwasser By Steven on 2/22/2014

    Great 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.
  • kalkwasser By alex on 2/7/2014

    Best stuff I have ever used. My tank parameters are staying stable with 420 calcium alk at 10 and ph at 7.8. very satisfied customers service is top notch and delivery was spot on. Definitely will be purchasing from BRS in the future.
