Hi Guys, I've been thinking whether this idea will work.
In Pic A there is a RO reservoir with pump 1, pumping RO water through the kalkstirrer to the return chamber of the sump when the level is low. A float switch activates it. Now on the kalkstirrer there is a circulation pump 2 swirling the kalkwasser every now and then to mix it with the RO - depending on the settings of the timer.
If you put the RO top up pump 1 on a pedestal like in Pic B (this is to allow the kalkwasser powder to settle at the bottom without covering the pump) and add another powerhead pump 2 which does the same job as the circulation pump on the kalkstirrer - mixing the powder according to timer settings - so, when the float switch activates pump 1, it will still pump kalkwasser to the return chamber like the first setup. The only difference is a kalkstirrer costs R1250 - R1500 where with the second pic you only need a extra powerhead which might be R100 - R300.
What do you guys think?
There is probably another way of doing this somewhere on the forum
