when hooking up a kalkreactor should i

when hooking up a kalkreactor should i start dosing slowly or just use it to top off my tank as well as adding kalk? i lose about 2 galklons a day due to evaporation. i imagine i will lose less hence i turned the temp down a couple degrees. so any info on this would be greatly appreciated

I replace 100% of evaporated water with Kalk using a reactor and I believe that this is the common method.

Click on my name to visit my homepage and access a collection of AquaController and Apex software, tips, trick and other Q&A including a link to the 'unofficial Apex new users guide' with loads of helpful information and don't forget to put a pin in my location map.

Same here, I try to mix up enough in the reactor to last me a week or so.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro....
