Comments: The reason these are so moderately priced is that you need to buy them by the dozen. I have no less than 7 of these sitting in the junk heap. They are quiet and work great until they stop working, which is no more than a few months.(Of course, you know that they have stopped working because you lose siphon on your overflow [I have a CPR type with square corners] and your aquarium empties on the floor.) The owner of my local aquarium store says that everyone knows they are junk but that there just aren't many alternatives. So, I have taken to just replacing it every two months or so.

Comments: This is a perfect little pump for the money. Little work horse and great for your small water needs. Great for doing many different things with your tank. Not just for dosing.

Comments: This pump is pretty good for the price. I use it as a kalk doser set up on a timer. It doesn't give a whole lot of output, which is a good thing for dosing chemicals.

Comments: This pump seems to be doing well so far,the only downfall is it doses a lot per minute so i took a drywall anchor plugged up most of the hole ran a test for 1 min to measure the exact dose into a cup and then set my time.On a side note the first night i got these pumps running i dosed 3/4 of a gallon of alk into my tank.I set an on time and never set the off time so it ran until empty,however that was my own stupidity and not the pumps fault,also dont submerge the pump tube in water let it drip and leave a drip loop so it has to go uphill a little or it will create a siphon and mega dose.My tank is recovering i didnt lose much except a few astrea snails and my tank has about 40 sps so i was really freaking out.Overall good pump i got the tube for about 5 bucks
