    I have a Reef Octopus KS100 Nilson Kalk Reactor (I will make sure at home if is the right name)
    I use about 30L of topup water each week.

    How often should i topup the kalk?

    i add 5 tablespoons every week or 2 depending on how much is left, have the same unit, i stir it every eve as lights go out for a few seconds then leave it, some nights i forget

    I will make sure about the unit but i let it run for 15min every 2hours according to the directions i got with the unit.
    Every 2 weeks does sound like a good idea.

    the reason i dont stress with the stirring so much is that the solution is saturated and as the kalk gets used it redissolves in the new RO water passing through
