CO2 and Kalk?

One of my LFS (that makes tanks) will start making their own CO2 reactors. He said he would sell me the first ones for $150. I trust him totally but wanted to get some other input from others is it practical or not recommended to do both kalkwasser and a CO2 at the same time? should I stop the kalk or not buy the CO2?
Any help, thanks

Why do you want to add strait CO2 to your tank? It will depress your PH and fuel algae growth. Now if your meaning for a CA reactor...that is a horse of a different color. I know many people that run both Kalk and CA reactors. They want the PO4 precipitation benefits as well as stabalizing the ph.

Okay I am a big dummy. I got thrown off by the lettering. Is there a website or info on CA reactors out there someone can point me to, so I can be a little more educated in this.
