pro/cons of various reactors...
I take it there are 2 main types: calcium reactors and Nilsen reactors.
The standard calcium reactors use CO2
to dissolve a calcium based substrate whereas a Nilsen reactor takes powdered calcium and makes a solution of calcium hydroxide (Kalwasser?); the effluent then beeing dosed into the tank with top off water.
What are the pro/cons of each ssytem? -- price, ease of use, reliability.
Thanks again for your input!
