Kalkwasser is an additive used to maintain alkalinity and calcium in a reef environment. Wether or not you need it will primarily depend on the calcerous load of the tank and the demand from week to week. If light, water changes would be an easy way to maintain the chem levels. When higher scleractinian coral stocks are maintained, additives such as kalk can be beneficial.

>>Here<< is a great article that should answer many of your questions.

Cheers
