Kalk Contribution Calculator
* Special thanks to Boomer from

for his help.
This calculator estimates the amount of calcium and alkalinity that a kalk solution contributes to an aquarium system. The kalk solution can be prepared with either calcium hydroxide or calcium oxide.
This calculator cannot handle kalk solutions that have been supersaturated with the help of vinegar. Also, it assumes both that the strength of the kalk solution does not decrease significantly over time and that no undissolved kalk powder enters the aquarium.
