SpectraPure® LiterMeter 3 Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

The new LiterMeter III™ is an automatic precision dosing system for the aquarium and horticulture industry. Three independent programs control one built-in pump and up to two external pumps (sold separately). Perform 2-way water changes, in addition to eliminating the manual drudgery of dosing Kalkwasser, trace elements, or topping off evaporated water. Quiet operation, auto-calibration, and virtually maintenance-free.

Calcium maintenance and alkalinity control are essential for a healthy reef tank. SpectraPure®’s LiterMeter III™ eliminates the manual drudgery of dosing Kalkwasser, trace elements, or topping off evaporated water. Kalkwasser replenishment, to be most effective, should be added to your aquarium slowly and consistently to avoid precipitation of calcium carbonate. The LiterMeter III™ automatically and reliably performs this task for you.

The LiterMeter III™ offers features found only on expensive laboratory pumps. Built-in calibration features eliminate the guesswork of uncalibrated competitive units. Unlike noisy industrial metering pumps sold to the aquarium trades, SpectraPure®’s LiterMeter III™ was specially designed for critical aquarium dosing and is so quiet you can use it in your living room. Superior three-roller direct-motor drive eliminates noisy gears and improves flow accuracy and tubing life. It can be run dry without damage, and pumps either from a draw height of 12 feet or to a delivery height of 60 feet.

Three independent programs control the internal pump, as well as two optional external pumps. The LM3-RPM is a LiterMeter III™ pump mounted in a small plastic box. The LM3-TCM (SP1095) is an optional level sensor that interrupts power to the LiterMeter III™ when a high water level is detected. The LM3-WXM (SP1093) combines an LM3-RPM (SP1091) and an LM3-TCM (SP1095) in one package, interrupting power only to that pump. See the Operations Manual for application examples.

A Must Have

Comments: If you are running a large system or dosing kalkwasser, this device is definetly for you. I got tired of adjusting my drip rate for my kalkwasser and trace elements on an almost daily basis and so I got this excellent piece f equipment which did not dissapoint. Takes no more than an hour to set up and once you program it, its set it and forget it. Definetly worth the money if you have the coin to spend.

Comments: This is a fantastic little device. It works precisely as it is described. The build quality is excellent and the control interface is intuitive and obvious. Caution, however. If you buy this pump in part to do auto top-off, you should be aware that the pressure switch that Spectrapure sells as an accessory for that purpose will only control the water level to about +/-1" to 1.25". If you are looking for top-off control, go with the Spectrapure Ultra Precise Level Controller. Apart from this caveat, I have only praise for the LM3.

Comments: The liter meter has performed flawlessly for me for about six months now. I couldn't be happier (unless they cut the price in half.) It is an expensive pump but it is also worth the price.

Comments: This unit has been great so far. I used to be worried about overdosing kalk for my evaporation topoff. With the LiterMeter 3 I just set it and forget it! No more worries about adding too much of any supplement with this.

Comments: Great product so far.. had it set up with 2 extra pumps, calibrated, and running within an hour of opening the packages. I can dose as little as 10ml per day, over 150 intervals. I tested it. Great

Comments: Have been using about 2 months now and it is working perfectly. I have switched additives once to far and it took about 5-10 minutes to clean all three pumping units and get going again. Great!

Comments: I have been using this pump for over 4 years and never had to do anything to it. It replaces 11 liters of evaporated water everyday, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. One of the very best investments.
