REVIEW
One of the most attractive dosers. A lot of people seem to hate the programing method for this dosers because it is not the norm, I love the programing method of it, I can dose every second, minute, hour , day or week if I chose to, simply by telling it dose x amount every 2 hours or 36 hours or 48 ...Read More

Reef Doser

REVIEW
I like this product well enough. If you want something to run in the middle of the night, you have to stay up until the middle of the night to start it since it doesn't use the clock, but uses intervals of time. I had to do this because one of the pumps is not air tight. So I have to fix this.

good, but WARNING!!!

REVIEW
The pumping mechanism is great and works perfectly, even for tiny doses (like 1 drop). HOWEVER, I have a big problem with the design...the programming is ridiculous, I'm not even sure I want to keep the thing. It only allows you to program in "cycles," not by a clock. In other words, y...Read More

REVIEW

what else do I need?

REVIEW
The product does not ship ready to use. I need to purchase tubing and manufacture some sort of bottle-hose connector in order to put the thing to use. Also, the directions are confusing and don't provide any dosing time to amount of dosing information. This is a product of Poland and the english ...Read More

Dosing Pump

REVIEW
The aqua medic works extremely well when setup properly. Instructions are not the best but they have a help number which is useful. Can program pumps individually and deliver the volume based on elapsed time since pump is of one speed. In power failures you must restart but program remins intact in ...Read More

TOO COMPLICATED 4 $

REVIEW
Mechanically it operates fine but the ease of understanding the display, programming and resetting the time cycles could be much better. Using it feels like I am an unqualified layman using a device specifically designed for and to be used by experts. It's not very consumer-friendly. When I press...Read More
