- Bubble Magus Dosing Pump
Failed out of the box By jeremy on 4/29/13jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSet up the dosing pump and after a month my calc/alk was way out of whack and corals suffered. I tested the pump and found that pump 1 and 3 functioned properly, but pump 2 never worked which threw calc/alk out of balance.
Doesn't speak well for this product when a pump malfunctions immediately.
Easy to set-up. Easy to use. By Tommy Gee on 3/19/13Tommy Gee would recommend this product to a friendI had been debating for some time as to whether or not to spend the money and add a doser. Would it be everything I expected?
Up until the purchase of this product I always dosed manually. Not any more!
The Bubble Magus BM-T01 noty only takes away the stress associated with missing doses (or under/over dosing) additives, it provides peace of mind (eliminates worry) not to mention additional leisure time to spend with my better half!
The one downside with this unit is the operating noise. It's noticeable.
All things considered, I am very satisfied. The BM-T01 delivers everything I expected and is a solid value.
If you're looking to automate additive dosing, I recommend you strongly consider the BM-T01. You won't be dissapointed.
Great Unit By Curtis on 3/10/13Curtis would recommend this product to a friendFirst unit was received DOA . BRS quickly sent out a replacement.
could not be happier By Jason on 2/10/13Jason would recommend this product to a friendOrdered this product and it was one of the best things I did for my aquarium. Corals have instantly responded to the stability. Works great, easy to use. very very happy
GET IT !! By TOM on 12/3/12TOM would recommend this product to a friendHad mine for over a year, does EXACTLY what I bought it for; accurately doses Mg, Ca, and Alk. It got so good that i starting testing once a week (instead of 2 or 3 times). I'm that comfortable with this pump. Had to replace one head (after 1 year) easy to do and 25 bones at BRS, big deal. This is one of those products you don't realize how awesome it is until you get another tank and are dosing manually (oh yeah !!, I will be ordering another for that tank). I am a perfectionist and this pump has not disappointed. I researched for 3 months before getting this unit, don't wait, get it !!
Time saver By Kwadwo on 10/8/12Kwadwo would recommend this product to a friendGreat for a reef tank. Set it and dont have to manual dose every day. Great for when your away from home for extended period of time. Makes your tank more enjoyable without worrying about dosing chemicals all the time.
Very Useful Device By brandon on 8/14/12brandon would recommend this product to a friendThe BM T01 is an amazing addition to any reef aquarium. It is extremely straight forward and easy to use and making adjustments is quick and painless. The only downside is that is not connectable to tank controllers such as the neptune apex, which would be just about the only thing that could make this better! That said, the motor heads are solid and I have not witnessed any back syphoning. Its relatively quiet and not bothersome the few seconds its running. The self splitting of dosing throughout the day is also a great feature so that you do not shock any inhabitants or throw off any tank parameters by dosing all at once. All this said, I dont think I could live with out this doser, it simply made my life and my reefs life that much better!
GREAT ITEM By THANIT on 7/16/12THANIT would recommend this product to a friendSETTING UP THIS DOSER WAS A BREEZE, VERY VERY EASY AND VERY VERY ACCURATE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT IN A HEARTBEAT.
Easy to use By Richard on 5/7/12Richard would recommend this product to a friendThis does exactly what it is suppose to do.
Set it and Forget it! By Roberto on 3/21/12Roberto would recommend this product to a friendExtremely accurate. Once you set up your ML it is consistant and accurate. Great product!!
Great Doser for Price By travis on 2/2/12travis would recommend this product to a friendchose this doser instead of profilux because of cost, and by far i'd say ive been very impressed so far. been running for over a year now, and super easy to dial in the exact amount of Ml needed to dose. love how you can divide up the dosage in cycles per day.
The only drawback ive found is that the buttons are kind of hard to press, and its a little noisy when running, but it doesnt cycle long and washes out with other sounds from sump.
Great product. By Sam on 11/17/11Sam would recommend this product to a friendFirst I will start by saying that overall I feel this is a very good product, especially for those who have an active lifestyle or who work irregular hours and may not be home to perform the day to day maintenance tasks on their reef, such as dosing. This was the primary reason that I originally considered this product. After reading the positive reviews, I decided to give it a shot. So far I am happy with my purchase.
First we'll discuss the positives. This unit is incredibly easy to program. All you do is set which pump you are programming, the total dosage for the day, and how many times the total dosage will be divided up by. For example, you can set the total daily dosage at 10ml, then select 4 times per day, so that it will dose 2.5ml at the 4 intervals you set. The screen is backlit as well which seems negligible but makes it all the more easy to program. I did not find the buttons to be overly hard to press, though they could be easier. You're better off using your fingernail if you have big hands. As far as delivery, the pump accepts plain old airline tubing, attached to the ends of the pump heads.
A couple of things I didn't like about the unit were the price firstly. $300 is a lot of money to spend on a pump which adds at most a few mL of additives to your tank every day. However, if you are going to use dosing pumps, this is the route I would go. If you were to buy 3 individual dosing pumps, that's 2 additional valuable plugs taken up, as well as those pumps requiring timers to operate, possibly taking up 3 spaces on your controller. This unit combines everything in one small box, which makes the price easier to cope with.
Secondly, the instructions are absolutely terrible. You can tell they were translated literally from Chinese. Some of the sentences make absolutely no sense whatsoever. At worst this is nothing more than comical, as you can still understand enough to program the unit. Just a minor annoyance.
Overall I'm very happy with the purchase of this unit. When you combine the price of 3 dosing pumps and their respective timers, the $300 really doesn't seem quite so bad. BubbleMagus (despite their horrible instructions) has a good reputation for quality products as well. I feel this product is fitting of that reputation.

hi all, quick question about the BM doser, does it automatically split the dose required into the ammount of times per day, i.e. if you require 60ml in total and you want it to dose 3 times a day then do you ask it to do 20ml 3 times a day?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Andrew,
The doser does have the ability to break your doses up into a maximum of 24 doses per day :-)

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO GET THIS DOSING PUMP WORKING AND DOSING CA, ALK, AND MAG?
OR IS THIS ALL THAT I NEED?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Lance,
The pump itself has a built in computer so you don't really need anything else to get the pump itself running. Just need to make sure you have the calcium, alk, and magnesium solution's themselves!
