How fast to drip Kalk?

I usually add 2tsp per gallon and need to drip more than just a gallon at night in my 110g. So, I've been adding Kent TuboCA in the morning and Kent dKH buffer at night. How fast should I drip Kalk during the day, by this I guess I mean how long should it take to drip a gallon, 3-4 hours?

I don't really measure the amount of time it takes to drip, I try to stick to one to two drops per second.

If you continue using the Turbo Ca and Superbufer, I would suggest you reverse how you add them. Buffers are best added in the early AM. If added later at night there is a good chancing of driving the ph quite high. If the kalk is also being dripped after lights out the ph could rise to a danger level.
