Take a look at this article. Randy gives an excellent explanation of the chemical interactions that occur when mixing kalk in vinegar.

I happen to think there are very few negative consequences to mixing kalk with vinegar and please don't be swayed by the previos post with the link to the tank crash. In my opinion there were many variables affecting that tank and I think the vinegar was not the culprit - more likely that the poorly managed dosing of kalk is what started the spiral which crashed that tank.

I've been mixing my kalk with vinegar for months and have found no ill effects. Good luck.
