View Full Version : Would it be beneficial to run the Kalk stirrer just a few times a day?

I read that the stirrer should be on 24/7 but could I lessen the amount of run time in order to add longevity to the stirrer? How long does a typical motor on a kalk stirrer last if ran 24/7? Btw, I really like your product!!

24/7 motor life is 3-4 years. They are inexpensive and easy to replace ($25 and 10 minutes). We recommend running it continuously, the motors we use are rated for this so let er rip!
