Great Beginner DIY Kalk Dripper By Jared on 11/28/13

I received this kit and the exact 2.5 Qt "OXO Good Grips Flip Lock Glass Canister" in the video above. Purchase here (http://goo.gl/eyDMc1) I also used the tapered bit in the video. Assembly took 15 minutes, and I was dosing in under 30 minutes. I say this is a good beginner method, because having the kalk in your ATO would be a lot less overall work. Since this review, I have switched to this method. The one tricky part about this kit is the flow valve. Most of the time it is either ON or OFF. You have to adjust it multiple times to get just the right drip. For my tank 1 drip every 5- 7 seconds was appropriate. It works well, and dosed the kalk perfect. On another note, I purchased 2 of these containers so I always have a backup kalk solution ready to drip. just swap the top, prime and go.

It could not be any easier to set up your own DIY Kalk reactor. It took me five minutes and I was up and running.

Great product as usual with BRS. Bought a $3 jug at walmart and make the whole thing for less than $25. Love this place!!

Was delivered faster than I expected and easy to put together after watching the video (in some ways, I would have preferred written instructions, if only because I had to sit with the kit, bottle and other tools at my little desk here to watch the video as I built the dripper--I'm not one for a retentive memory!) A representative of the company was very quick and very helpful in answering some questions I had regarding dosing my tank with kalk and that impressed me the most perhaps. A very good experience and will be ordering from Bulk Reef next time I need supplies or equipment.
Packaging could be improved a tad By Ken on 7/11/13

The product is great, no doubt, but the packaging caused the rigid tube to curve which can be a pain in the tookis to straighten out. Overall I am very pleased!

So glad BRS offers this, the components are top notch and makes it easy to make a dripper for kalk or any other chemical you were looking to dose slowly. In addition this kit could be used to make a dosing container to use for 2 part peristaltic dosers. use the bulkhead, straw and hose with a 1 gallon slim jug, or whatever your jug of choice is and bam!

I couldn't afford a calcium reactor so I bought the kit after watching the video on this DIY kit. I got a Rubbermaid 1.1 container from the store. Got my mixture mixed and it is now dripping into my sump. Easy to set drip time and it works great.

I installed this on an old popcorn container that I had and I got it all setup on a slow drip. It was easy to put together, only took about 10 minutes to assemble and it seems to be holding my calcium and alkalinity steady. I still dose magnesium to help maintain the CA & Ak. Much cheaper to use than the ready made units, which is important when you have a tight budget.
