    I need to setup my Kalk reactor/stirrer, does anyone have one? The problem I got my impeller was broken but is fixed now (thanx @Submariner), but when I cleaned it the inlet and outlet sticker came off and now I cant remember what is the inlet or outlet...:blush:

    the connection that goes to the bottom should be the inlet.

    Outlet should be at the very top, to let out clear saturated water.

    Thanx @ RiaanP JNS mailed me the manual :p

    How would you run the reactor? To dose with evaporation rate? or on a separate pump and timer? and how frequent?:whistling:

    The best method is to run it on your tanks evaporation rate from your RO tank. Set the pump to stir the kalk media every 2 hour for 15 min. or less during the day and more at night. eg. like every 3 hours for 15 min during lights on and every 1 hour for 15 min during lights out.
