Kalkwasser dosing is considered one of the best all around methods to supplement calcium and alkalinity in a balanced solution. Pushing your top off water through a Nilson Reactor will create a super saturated slurry that has a high pH, helping increase your tanks pH while keeping your reefs most important elements (calcium and alkalinity) stable and balanced. There are many different dosing methods for kalkwasser, and by using a reactor, you can go longer in between maintenance while keeping a very stable, and consistent solution.
When adding kalkwasser to any aquarium, it is best to use a pump with a slow flow rate. Due to the high pH of the solution, it is best to add kalkwasser in small amounts, slowly, multiple times a day. Most ATO systems on the market will fit the flow rate needs of the reactor very nicely. A timer for the stir bar motor is required to mix the solution throughout the day. We suggest the reactor mix just a few times a day for just a couple of minutes.

Top-notch kalk stirrer By David on 5/27/2019David would recommend this product to a friendBuilt quality is what you’ve come to expect from Reef Octopus, Amazing!. With that aside I’ve been using this on my reef tank for the last 6 months and the motor is still going strong. I’m running the motor for 10 minutes every 4 hours in conjunction with my Tunze ATO. Nothing but praise for this kalk reactor.
