    Hi all

    I have few questions dripping kalkwasser.
    Normally when you mix kalkwasser you get the white stuff settling at the bottom and then you drip the clear solution on top into the tank.
    What I would like to know.
    1. How fast should the drip be, 1 drip / second?
    2. What must I do with the white stuff at the bottom, can I just keep toping it up with ro until all is dissolved?

    Also, try to drip it in the skimmer chamber. Phosphates bind easier and get skimmed out.
