It's not the fanciest thing in the world, but it works and is leak proof. I tapped all of the inputs and outputs this go around. I basically used Bill Esposito's design, but I used clear PVC rather than acrylic. If anyone would like more info, let me know...

Here's a link. I used basically the same design with a few tweeks of my own (the bleed off valve on the side)...

So where did you get the supplies? Esp. the clear PVC.... I would also be interested in how long you can go between kalk fills.

I got most of the supplies locally. The PVC fittings came mainly from Mclendon's (sp?) hardware. The John Guest fittings all came from Home Depot and the check valve came from SpectraPure. I got the clear PVC from H2ODoctor.

I'll be interested as well to see how long I can go without refills. I put half a cup in there initially, so we'll see...
