Using these for a little over 1 month to dose calcium and alk with BRS 2 Part. They are controlled by digital garden timers set to dose 8 times a day. It only took a couple of days to raise Ca++ to 420 and alk to 9 and the levels haven't varied since. Light weight but seem to be sturdy. Easy to set up.
Great Pump By David on 9/2/2011

I use three of these pumps...2-1.1ml for dosing calcium and alk, 1-50 ml for auto topoff. I use my Neptune Apex to control the pumps. They pumps are great. The only problems I have had are a squeaky noise that comes out of them when they are running, I wonder if some sort of lubricant can be used to stop the squeak. I also recommend using outlets 4 & 8 on the EB-8 or using an EB-4 because they are relay outlets on the Apex. The non-relay switches remained on because the pump uses such little power.

Can't say enough good things about this product. Please don't even think about starting this hobby without budgeting for dosers, like the BRS. The price/value equation on this item is perfect. Very easy to set up, and with all the help and advice available on the BRS website, you will have your key levels locked in quickly. Well made from solid materials.

Put my third BRS 2 Part Doser (1.1 mL Per Minute) on -line today. If you're considering a Drew's Doser (at 1.5 ml per minute), forget-about-it! (1) this doser comes with a mounting bracker and (2) this doser has a threaded design for attaching the tubing (vodka can make a slip on connection slip - I once dosed a liter of vodka into my system when the connection to a doser slipped off) and (3) the 1.1 vs. 1.5 is mode granular. The extra money is worth it!

seems like my entire reef club uses these for two part and I can see why, they are built like a tank and the drip rate is perfect for two part..
for low duty cycle only! By mjd on 7/4/2011
mjd wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I bought a pair of these to dose my 2 part. I have now replaced them both with Drews Dosers. A number of problems occured - firstly, the santoprene tubing split open after approx 9-12 months.. I had a heck of a time finding a replacement. Once I did, the replacement wasn't an exact match and the tube was slightly smaller, making it nearly impossible to make a good seal.
the second issue is the plastic hub that turns the rollers cracked, and the shaft started slipping, and the rollers stopped moving. I tried fixing with crazy glue, then polyurethane glue, then with a small metal hose clamp, and finally gave up and switched to drews doser pumps. no more headaches!

Hooked these up to my Aquacontroller and has been working great for the past few months. Be careful tho. If you're using an old DC8, this unit will not switch off even if you use outlets 4 and 8. I learned the hard way and dumped a gallon of calcium into my tank.
I have it dosing for 10 minutes every hour for 16 hours and it keeps my ph nice and steady.
Love it and gong to buy a second one By Mark on 4/27/2011

I have been using one for alk dosing a little over a month. Well built, easy set up, use with timer, quiet, just an excellent product!
Not Bad By Flipside on 4/22/2011

Never had any problems. Been running them for over a year now. IMO, they are pretty pricey for a single pump, especially considering all the new pump systems coming out these days (with multiple pumps and timers/cpu's incorporated into their designs).
Awesome doser By ben on 4/11/2011

Bought this for calcium and alkalinity dosing because i have seen what happens when calcium reactors go haywire and dump all of the co2 out in one day, everything turns green. Besides that i don't know how to set a calcium reactor up even if i could afford it. I am going to buy one for magnesium next. I run for 35 minutes a day on my 60 gallon.

I ordered 2 of these pumps about 3 years ago. They have been running flawlessly since day 1. I use them with a Neptune and split my dosing up over 6 times a day for super stability of parameters. Great Pumps!

This is a very easy pump to setup. The pump is super quite and 1.1mL per minute flow rate makes it ideal for automating 2 Part dosing. Don't forget a timer Eco Plus Dual Digital Timer is a good one.
fantastic quality By rroselavy on 11/7/2010

I'm impressed with the build quality of these Italian made dosers. Very solid casings and well thought out mounting brackets and tube connectors. Installation was super easy - two pilot holes per pump and screw on the bracket...no shelf required. The enclosed tubing, both hard and soft vinyl, is a nice touch.
They run very quietly. They make a low noise, but I cannot hear them when running inside my enclosed stand.
I also appreciate that there are no built in electronics in these dosers. My intuition tells me that they will be more reliable over the long haul with one less thing to break.
I only have one criticism: The beakers that are included for calibration are not ruled finely enough for a 10 minute test. I ended up using a 50ml graduated cylinder I had which was far more accurate.
Unfortunately, I timed my purchase poorly. I could have got free shipping and 1000 rewards points per pump if I had waited one more week. Could have saved $29!!! Arrggh - I HATE when that happens....

Been using 3 of these on an aquarium controller for the past 4 months without fail. It comes with more than enough tubing for an average install and mounting hardware for a clean, and easy install. I only wish it also came with .5" screws to mount on a cabinet wall but that's what the hardware stores are for. i'll probably be getting another one for trace element dosing in the near future.

I have 2 BRS dosers that I use to dose Alk and CA. Combined with my controller, these pumps are awesome. I dose for 1 min out of every hour throughout the day to keep my levels constant. Easy to setup and quick mounting.
