    The way around this is to not fill your reactor, but adjust the amount of media you need to dissolve based on your system's current demand. That way you are not introducing too much CO2 in order to dissolve more media than your system can handle. CO2 can also be blown-off by aeration either after the reactor or in the reactor. Aquacare does this inside their reactors.

    • i completely agree. there are multiple ways to reduce the pH decreasing effects of a calcium reactor. you can even drip effluent water into a protein skimmer to help it off gas.
