Recalcifying purified water

From: Lyndsay Knowles <lyndsay.knowles>

We are designing a new water purification system and intend
including a re-ionization step to raise the pH to at least 8.  I
would be interested to hear how other paper labs have done this
including the following:

    *   what has been used as a calcium source?

    *   how much has been required and in what form e.g. a 30 cu.
        in. column of marble chips of a given size?

    *   how the system is monitored and maintained?

    *   overall how successful was the system?
