    Question Kalkwasser

    Hi,

    I have new tank... 75 gallons that dont have a sump. And I'm wondering if there is a way that I can dose kalkwasser. I know that usually it goes into the sump...

    Thank you,

    I made mine using a 4 litre plastic milk jug container and it works great.

    Take the cap and make two holes in it, just big enough to slide in two pieces of airline hose nice and snug so no air passes.

    One hose goes down to about 1" off the bottom of the jug so as not to suck up the white sediment. Make sure this hose can reach your tank to where you want to drip it.

    The second hose goes down to about 1" from the cap, so 1" hanging inside the jug. This hose must remain above the kalk water

    The best thing is you don't have to suck to get a flow going. Just blow in the small hose and that will force the kalk water through the long hose and into the tank.

    It's that simple. I bought an adjustable clamp at Big Als to control the flow.
