    You can DIY one with an old 4L spring water container and a hospital Drip line.

    There are several other spin offs from that project, but the general idea is the same.

    I would modify the first one by putting a 3/4" elbow on the inside of the container, facing upwards. This would cause water to be drawn from a higher point within the container.

    Yes, with the added main benefit of dosing kalkwasser to maintain pH, Calcium, and alkalinity...

    Its all great ideas and I even say Tang_Man dyi Kalk Reactor, which is impressive.
    But myself I have no tools and hate build, so DYI projects never happen for me.
