SpectraPure® LiterMeter 3

SP1071

This item has been discontinued.

SpectraPure 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.

REVIEW
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.

REVIEW
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.

REVIEW
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.
