    kalk reservior or drip

    When you add kalk to the tank do you do this by adding to the reservoir for evaporation, a kalk reactor or just add a slurry to sump? I have a kalk reactor and I am thinking of just adding the kalk to the reserve water instead. just put a pump in the reserve water to stir.. what do you think?
