Still good value for the $ even if it fails. By William on 3/29/13William would recommend this product to a friendFirst BRS 50ml dosing pump failed just shy of 2 years. I use exclusively for Kalkwasser at a rate of about 3 gallons per day coupled with a aqua controller for redundancy.
Same reason as others have had, motor runs but the gears no longer strong enough to spin.
After researching for a different pump to replace this failed pump, I came to the conclusion that the higher quality dosing pumps were in the price range of $300.
So knowing that I'm still saving even if I have to replace this pump more often.
Easy, quiet, well built By Anthony on 2/26/13Anthony would recommend this product to a friendUse this to dose kalk water on my 150 gallon tank easy to adjust the time when coupled with a digital timer. This is the life line of my tank the heart that's how much trust I have in this product
Died less than 1yr By Hollywood on 2/2/13Hollywood wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWork great til the gears stripped. Was used for R/O top off water with Neptune controller. Life was cut short just before it's 1st birthday.
pump failed By Steve on 12/23/12Steve would recommend this product to a friendI would only recommend if you needed 6 months of use...
used mine for about 6 months then took a break... started using it again this fall then it failed. pump sounds like it is trying to work but the pinch roller will not turn. I was counting on this pump to keep my Ca levels right but I may be looking for a better product.
Steer clear, high failure rate By cardiffgiant on 11/23/12cardiffgiant wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMine failed after a few months of normal use. The motor turned, but the rollers did not. It was under warranty and BRS replaced it quickly. There are a handful of failures with these pumps with members of my local reef club. I recommend steering clear.
Accurate, Easy, and Fairly Priced By Calvin on 10/26/12Calvin would recommend this product to a friendI have purchased several of these pumps for dripping Kalkwasser from my resevoir to top off tank from evaporation. The pumps are xtremely accurate and easy to set up. I have owned for almost a year and its still working just as well as it did on day 1.
DIED after 1 year of use By AB on 9/24/12AB wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI used these pumps for my ATO and these worked great for a year, but than one died and i replaced it with a spare pump, which died in about 2 weeks. When works are great, but for that kind of money, I would expect better durability.
Good Item By Andre on 8/14/12Andre would recommend this product to a friendDoes what it is supposed and does it well
Nice Pump does what it should By Andre on 8/14/12Andre would recommend this product to a friendJust a nice item and the distance it can pump is amazing
Decent performance, a little loud By Joshua on 7/25/12Joshua would recommend this product to a friendI don't know what this pump sounds like when it's mounted outside of a wooden stand, but it's pretty loud when it's mounted inside of one. I use it to dose my kalk on an Apex, and it performs like clockwork every 30 minutes. It was also a little bit bigger than I expected, coming in at ~4hx3wX4d (inches). It gets the job done, but I think it would be a much better value at the sale price permanently.
Perfect for Application By TW on 7/21/12TW would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this for my Biocube 29 and it has been running perfectly for several months. As referenced in the description of the product there is some associated noise but for the amount of time the doser runs it is not an issue.
Working well so far By David on 7/18/12David would recommend this product to a friendI have 3 of these, plus two of the 1.1 ml per minute pumps. I guess I'm all in. Working well so far. I use one of these for my auto top off. The other two I use as a automatic water changer. They run 20 minutes every 6 hours, one in each direction. My outflow pulls water from 15 feet away, and pushes in agains their ceiling another 20 feet to the drain. Tough little pumps. Time will tell on durability I guess.

I would like to know if a doser with the label 3l/h is the 50ml/hr doser that has 20 feet of head.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey there,
You are correct, the the 3 L/hr pump is the 50ml doser. The 1.1ml dosers would be labeled as .06l/hr. They do have 20ft of head pressure so it shouldn't be any problem for the pump to push water up a distance less then 20ft.
BRS Top Off Doser Specs
- 20 ft max head
- 50mL/min flow rate is ideal for most top off systems
- Will not back siphon
- Precision two roller design extends pump life
- 12 month tube life (at 4 hours of use per day)
- 12 month Bulk Reef Supply warranty on pump motor and head
- Includes 17 ft of tubing, mounting bracket, and directions
BRS Top Off Dosers are intermittent duty pumps and not meant for continuous operation. We recommend on/off cycles under a few hours to maximize life span. This is a higher RPM motor than the BRS 2 Part Doser and may make a small amount of noise in operation but is much quieter than most dosing pumps in this flow rate range. Mounting the pump to the inside of a wooden stand will amplify sound.
Deal of the Day!
