I have read a few different ways but I wanted an opinion based on my setup.
I have a container that holds about 5-10 gal
of top off water. It can hold more but that is all I fill it up too. 5 gal
usually lasts almost a week. I have a pond pump that suctions to the bottom of the container and draws water from the bottom to supply my sump when the float calls for water.
I have read some just dump the pickling lime in their top off container and fill with fresh RO
water. Let it sit over night and then turn everything on so that when the float calls for water, the sump gets kalk
. I worry about my pump sucking in the paste on the bottom though.
Using this method, at the end of the week, do you just dump more kalk
water in and let it all mix up or should the container be cleaned? I have added some kalk
to my container but I mixed it in a separate container and skimmed the top off and tried not to pour any of the bottom paste in. Worked ok but I need an easier way.
The second option would be to set up a drip into the sump using a 2.5 or 5 gal
