Inexpensive and EASY Way to Dose Calcium/Alkalinity, etc. By Davide on 11/21/2014
Davide would recommend this product to a friend
I was using a calcium reactor previously, which was expensive to maintain between calibration, probes, media, etc. This dosing system is very easy to use and doesn't require regular calibration, or the purchase of expensive probes.
I mix the calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium solutions on a monthly basis. I test my levels every week and adjust the timer I have attached to the dosing system if I need to dose more or less of a particular solution.
Love It!!!! By ScubaLou on 11/14/2014

I used this product in the past without the pumps. I just installed the pumps and still making adjustments and proper installation of lines and wires. So far, I'm kicking myself in the .... for not purchasing the pumps a long time ago. I have the pumps connected to timers and it's really easy to use with no mess. I can not wait to make my next purchase on a reef keeper to make it even better. I would definitely recommend this setup to anyone to easily maintain water levels without the high price of a reactor.

I've had this kit running on a fully stocked 28g Nano Cube mixed reef for over a year now. Overall the package is an excellent deal. Very accurate pumps, a ton of supplements, and all the instructions you need. Take the time to dial it in and don't forget to test periodically to adjust for changing conditions. This is the best deal out there for a peristaltic dosing system hands down. I use mine with an Apex so it is very easy to manage.

This is a simple, cost effective dosing system that does the job with little effort. I've been dosing manually since moving up to 180 build and made the jump to automation. I didn't want to pay for the name and all the bells and whistles that i know I would never use. This was the solution and I couldn't be happier. BRS does a great job with alternative sourcing methods to come up with solutions that are practical, simple, cost effective and get the job done. Kudos guys.
Recommend it all day long

Easy to setup, easy to mix up the solution(s), easy to dial in with simple testing of your params and a little logic. For instance, I dosed my tank, then tested ALK and Ca. I didn't dose manually for 24 hours, at which point i tested again and saw how my levels dropped. Then, I waited another 24 hours, and did the same. I then averaged the two usages to come to a daily consumption rate. I then used the BRS calculators and lucked into dialing in my dosage with my Apex on the first try. Used a little extra to bring it up to where I wanted, then started the dosing schedule, stable params!!!!! Seems so much easier to deal with than a Ca Reactor ( tho i've never owned one )

I think that this is a must have product after using this for a couple months. The thing I love about this is I can leave for a week and not worry about dosing my tank. It is all taken care of. It takes a little fine tuning to get it dialed in but is totally worth it. This kit keeps my take parameters stable.

I haven't set my dosers up yet, but I can say the 2 part system is awesome. If you can make a cup of coffee, you can definitely use this product. Mixes very well, and dosing is a breeze using the reef calculator. Make sure to change the calculator to dKH if you aren't using the meq/l. I personally think the dKH should be set as the standard and all others follow. Great customer service

My review is one of many glowing reviews. So it is obvious that this is a great product. This took the headache out of dosing for me. I use the dosing pumps with a Reefkeeper and it is super easy to manage. The two parts mixtures mix well and BRS has included great instructions. I think one of the biggest selling points for me is the fact that BRS has the dosing calculator on the website. Some days I just don't feel like doing algebra when I am exhausted, the calculator makes it incredibly simple. Last but not least, BRS support is responsive when I do need help.

Makes Getting Into Dosing Simple By David on 6/21/2013
David would recommend this product to a friend
What can I say? Everything you need to get started on two part dosing is included here. The instructions along with the calculator on the BRS site and you will be dosing in no time. The only thing that I suggest BRS include with this package is a set of suction cups for airline tubes to direct the dosing lines into your sump. Still a 5 star item though!

Finally after months of manual dosing and chasing test results, Ca and Alk swings I purchased this and got my parameters where I wanted them within 5 days.
Great product. Pumps are virtually silent and seem well constructed.
Chemicals seem to dissolve well.
If you are serious about the hobby this is a no brainer.

This kit came with everything I needed and I must say that the pumps are top notch.
I would suggest that you "calibrate" the pumps as the instructions suggest. I found mine dose 1.5 and 1.8ml per minute rather than the 1.1 advertised.
A reef controller to go along with this is not a must have, but a major convenience.

I've been running this system for about three weeks and things are slowly coming into balance. I had high calcium and low alk so I'm looking forward to being able to keep things balanced without dosing by hand. The instructions were veyr clear and it was very easy to get the system set up.

I bought this dosing kit to replace daily dosing. The pumps are easy to install but the cups they say to use for calibration are pretty much useless. measures in 10 ml increments. didn't matter though, it dosed roughly what it said it would. the brs online calculator seems pretty accurate. the amount of mix you get with the 1 gallon mix is awesome. for the price you pay for it you will get what appears to be 4 x the amount of the premixed you would buy. mixing the chemicals is dead easy and mixes well. looking forward to seeing the long term results of the brs 2 part.

I'm running an 80g total system with mostly sps and clams. This package was exactly what my tank needed. The stability it provides amazing. All corals and clams are growing and thriving like never before. I'll keep running the BRS dosing system for as long as possible . It wont be a happy day when I have to change to a cal reactor.

Order this a few weeks ago. Have it connected to a Reef Keeper Lite/PC4 relay sockets and dosing what I need to keep my params in check. Great, simple to mix and use. And with the calculators on the site takes the guess work out of figuring out how much. Which was one of things I hated with other products. Well be using this from now on.

This kit in conjunction with the online video instructions is great. It takes some time for the pumps to prime if you use all of the tube, but once it is up and going it works great. I am using an Apex controller to time the pumps. You can watch the pH plot and easily verify that it dosed properly each day.
Best dosing pumps on the market By Dave on 8/26/2012
Dave would recommend this product to a friend
I Orderd the two part dosing system which included all the additives and pumps necessary to add calcium & buffer to my 210 gallon reef tank. Not only did it come promptly it included everything I needed to get my system even more automated. No more mixing Kalkwasser & trying to explain my family how to mix and set up the drip when I leave town. The BRS pumps are the best on the in my opinion and so far they work as expected. I love ordering my aquarium supplies from BRS and will continue ordering all my reefing supplies from them as long as I stay in the hobby. I've orderd products from other online stores but BRS know their stuff!! Get use to my my name & phone calls cause there will be a lot more orders coming in the future!!!
I'm extremely pleased with these products! By Cbenner on 7/22/2012
Cbenner would recommend this product to a friend
I am very happy with this system. Using the BRS reef calculator, I was able to bring my perimeters into the proper range and keep them their using the dosing pumps.
I am running the pumps with my Apex controller (relay outlets only) using the OSC commands and they are working flawlessly.
Their are many places to find the chemicals used here. But BRS has made mixing and storing these very convenient and easy with this kit.
The only reason I gave this system performance 4 stars is do to the difficulty bleeding the pumps during installation. But for the great price on these pumps it is to be expected.
If you are having a hard time keeping a calcium reactor dialed in, or are dosing manually every day, and want to find a great way to keep your ALK,CAL, and MAG at the right levels you have found the system.
I will defiantly recommend this system to my fellow reefers!
