    Default How do you manage your Alk Cal and Mag?

    Just curious to see the consensus on the different methods SCR peeps are using. Seems like Calcium Reactors are gaining popularity again but who knows for sure. What are you using?

    Well it's a start for now. Let's just say kalkwasser and other chemicals will be bundled under dosing for now and can post on the thread which type if they want to. Thanks
