Aqua Medic USA Peristaltic pump for all bypass filters and for dosing of trace elements

The SP 3000 dosing pump is an economic peristaltic pump for pumping small volumes of water. It can be used with bypass filters such as the Aqua Medic Nitratereductor NR 1000 and the Aqua Medic Calcium Reactor KR 1000, for automated dosing of fertilizers and minerals, and to top off evaporated water when combined with an aquaniveau level controller.

In coral reef aquariums, the addition of calcium and trace elements (products of the Reef Life series) can be automated using the SP 3000. The dosing pump is supplied with long life Santoprene hoses.

“No Support from Aqua Medic”

2.0
First - what other reviewers wrote about this pump is very true. I've used several of them over many years. They work fine when they work, but they are very, very fussy. You may have no problems and feel like it's a 5-star product. You may have leaks, loss of siphon, etc. and feel like it's a on...Read More

“Very Poor Quality”

1.0
The issues are many: 1. The hose is so rigid that I had to lubricate the tubing and the rollers with olive oil to get it to consistently turn when activated. 2. The unit made lots of noise (chatter)every time that the pinch roller assembly initiated a cycle. 3. As delivered, I had to cut...Read More

“follow the directions”

This is a great pump, but follow the directions. Make sure it is above the water level. I had it below and it flooded. So this is my second one. Also, if the pumps seems to stop working when you are using it for a calcium reactor, make sure you check your tubing first before you replace any pump ...Read More

In response to the problems noted in other reviews, I think that the instructions (or lack ther...Read More

“Better ones out there”

1.0
I've been using this for five months now. What a waste of money. I received this as a gift, and use it to dose kalk. Initial setup took forever. I could not get an airtight seal between the in/out hoses and the unit. Air bubbles kept appearing in the lines. I had to tighten the fittings with a wre...Read More

“Completely unsatisfactory”

1.0
Another reviewer said it perfectly: Buy cheap, buy twice. I bought this as a top-off pump in order the save a few bucks. What's wrong with it? Where shall I begin? The cover is so loose that it doesn't even need to be touched to fall off. The tolerances between the roller and the track are so ...Read More
