thanks for all the info on the items required to ensure that a calcium reactor works in the fashion it should les
Mashrie what i understand by your above comment is that a carx causes a gradual drop in pH. This is not true.All depends for alkalinity that is.
Ph a definite no no. It will drop gradually.
Cant you keep up with your current dosing of buffer and calcium additives?
Sean the one draw back of a CO2 reactor is that it does affect tank PH. Getting CO2 into the water in easy, getting it out is the difficult part. The effluent dripping back into the tank has a PH of 6.5 - 7 depending on your setting. At a steady drip rate this can drop your tank PH.is that a carx causes a gradual drop in pH. This is not true.
Besides calcium... the reactor also provides alkalinity....Although the effluent is acidic, it stabilisers pH.
