You can purchase kalk from the LFS, or you can buy ms wages pickling lime (it's the same thing), at the grocery store much cheaper.

Salty, I used the natureeef stuff for awhile myself. I didn't notice any difference (accept more work) adding all their chems, than what I am doing now. If you replace all your evap with a saturated kalk solution, you won't find the need for the additional ca additives.

Thanks Kevin I think I give that a try and let up on the pocket ($$$$) at the same time. Any particular brand of Kalk than the rest?

As noted above, you can buy any brand kalk from the LFS, or you can save money by buying Ms Wages pickling lime. The difference in quality is negligible IMO. If you can't find the pickling lime in the grocery store or at walmart, yahoo sells it in their online store. If you've never used it before, just do a search with Kalkwasser or pickling lime and you should find several threads.
