This is exactly the same method I am using and it's been working great for about 3 years now. I use a peristaltic pump though which is a little different than your design but basically the same.

You can add as much kalk as you want because it can only saturate the water so much and the rest will go to the bottom. The "skin" (sounds so gross) is a good thing to have.

I had a problem with large chunks of lime eventually building up in the line but that's what I get for not cleaning the can out for 3 years! Somthing to keep in mind though.

I still plan to go to a kalk reactor eventually though.

Cheers!
