hey all, i installed my ca reactor and i am experiencing some ph depression which i am told is from the increased carbonate in the tank. i have some 24" 4 and 5" dia pieces of acrylic left over from the reactor(had to buy 6' of each) and i would like to make a kalk reactor out of them. if anyone has good plans for maybe a more complicated( i like diy work) reactor using a MJ i would be very grateful.

thanks

low Ph from a reactor means your dosing C02 into the tank. Dial the output of the reactor or the C02 into reactor.

Do it slowly and monitor over 24 hrs.
