Balls Pickling lime. There was some people at reefcentral who found little bits of metal on the impellar magnets of there Kalk reactors pump when using this stuff. Just a warning.

I have read before that there is some metal in Balls brand pickling lime, but I believe the high ph precipitates it out of solution, which is why you might find an orange precipitate in your kalk container if you use it, just the same I'd use Mrs Wages

I do use Mrs Wages.. Seems to do a great job.. And to top it off when I ordered it I got a free sample of some chipoltle salsa mix that was awesome lol..
