    The clamp thingy that the pump turns into to hold it in place is broken, how do I remove that? I want to seal it off somehow as I do not need the pump anymore, mine is fed RO through a high pressure pump which adequately mixes the kalk.

    Have any ideas?

    Are you sure you want to use high pressure on there?
    I had air in my RO line after maint one night and it was enought to stir up the kalk so that it was being pumped into the tank. Unfort for me for some reason the pump kept going and that was the end of my nano.

    If your kalk goes more than half way up the reactor for any reason, shut it down and fix it. With the pump on the reactor, the kalk gets half way and is then sucked in preventing it from getting to the tank.

    Thanks Ross, just saw this reply now. I've set my profilux to run for 1 minute max to prevent it from dumping the kalk into the tank.
