Adding an additional chamber to calcium reactor

Just curious if adding a second chamber to a calcium reactor will increase the capability to deliver calcium? For example if I am getting a slightly larger (maybe 50 gallon) tank or packing an existing tank with sps can adding a second chamber help cover the additional water volume/calcium uptake or is it strictly used for CO2 scrubbing ? Thanks !

It actually is pretty negligible regarding co2 scrubbing but certainly adds capacity. I prefer dual chamber units.

Cool. Wasn’t sure if it needed to be recirculated like the main reactor to have an additional effect.
