DIY Nilsen reactor question


I was going to build my own kalk reactor out of 4 inch PVC and question about the height. Most plans I've seen recommend building it tall enough to hold the volume to cover what evaporates from your tank each day. I understand the rational for that (I think) but I was planning on plumbing it directly to my RO water system so it will always have a constant supply of water.

When doing it in this fashion, is there any reason it needs to be taller than 24 inches? Home depot sells 4 inch PVC in 24 inch sections. The volume my tank evaporates would require about 36 inches.
