Coralife Calcium Reactor

Has anyone had any experiences with the coralife calcium reactor? The price seems very reasonable as compared to other reactors on the market. Any opinions, good or bad?

I'm tired of going thru 300ml a day of b-ionic. I have 180gal with a heavy SPS population and I would feel better having a way to dose Ca and alk when I'm out of town for days at a time.

Ok sounds reasonable. How often do you do PWC and what type of salt.

15%/week pwc with Tropic Marin Pro. I drip 300ml/day of each component of b-ionic separately. Ca is 400-420. Alk is around 7.9-8.2 I never dreamed that the tank would get up to this level of consumption.
