Yep,
Mrs. Wages is great. And a lot cheaper then buying something labled as Kalkwasser for 10 times the cost of Mrs. Wages lime.

I use the precision marine kalkreactor with a litermeter III dosing pump. I also have an RKE controller set to turn the dosing pump off if the pH is too high. The RKE also kicks on the maxi jet mixing pump for the reactor a couple times per day for a few seconds each. I'm chipping away at a 5 gallon bucket worth of kalkwasser from bulk reef supply!

Vinegar is used to lower the ph level in Kalkwasser. If left untouched, Kalk has a ph of 12.0 You should be careful dosing Kalk, its very easy to overdose and can cause havoc in your system. Always research before dosing any element and always test before adding anything. Luna

Just my 2 cents. I had a lot of problems dosing Kalk, and I got a cal reactor. I would deffently recomend this route, as the tank is then on cruse control. I am in Iraq and mywife is taking care of the tank and has no worries about dosing anything. Just as an example I crased my previous tank 3 times due to Kalk
