The pump is clean looking and I like the set up I made. The problem is my reef keeper is glitchy of you adjust the doses during the day It misses the rest of that days doses. I would recommend only testing once a week and adjusting just as often.

Recently purchased 3 of these dosers. Easy to mount and assemble! Remember to run the calibration check/test!! BRS has calculators for determining how much calcium, alkalinity, etc. is needed for your tank... Thanks BRS for EVERYTHING!!!
Good dosing pump. By Chad on 7/22/2013

I purchased this pump after watching the product demonstration video. I was a little bit concerned about how noisy it might be after hearing the caution about mounting it to your tank stand. This pump is extreemly quiet, but not silent. I can only hear it when I'm specifically listening for it to turn on.
If accuracy is EXTREEMLY important, make sure you calibrate it using the included instructions.
Time will tell if the pump remains quiet and reliable, but it appears to be of quality construction.

Works as expected By Nicholas on 6/10/2013

I already had a ATO doser of the same brand and really like the hardware.
I got two of these to run my 2-part dosing. I "calibrated" the two pumps at the same time and they were both dosing @ 1.3 mL / min. That made it easy to calculate my dosing schedule on my ReefKeeper.
These are great dosing pumps for the price.

The dosing pumps work great and if you haven't learned it yet, in this hobby buying low end products will always cost you more in the end. Go with BRS and you can't go wrong!

I have been using two of these pumps for four months now. I love them. Easy mounting and great documentation from BRS. I have them controlled by my Neptune controller. No easier way to go.
Quality Dosing pump By Bluewaterbruce on 3/3/2013

I bought 2 for dosing alk. and Calcium, they work as expected. They dose great, I will recommend if you are trying to save a few bucks on a digital timer that you at least get a quality digital timer or upgrade to the apex or Neptune . I had a cheap ass timer from harbor freight go bad. I have a Home Depot timer on both now and haven't had any trouble. I just want to add that the timer sold by BRS looks identical as the one sold by Harbor Freight but maybe I just got a bad one.

As for my "2 cents".....
These pumps work as advertised. No problem with priming them (just turn them on). No "Back Siphoning"
I checked the output and both of mine dose 1.2ml/min,
pretty close to the claimed output! If your looking for a dosing pump, you can't go wrong with this one.

Finally glad these came back in stock. Hard to find a better deal for a more reliable and reefer friendly product. I dose on the hour with my APEX controller for rock solid Ca and Alk readings.

Great pump. Works well and was easy to setup and use with my controller. Be sure to use the mechanical relays with these pumps. They were a little larger then I expected but were easy to mount in my stand.

I've been running these dosers for about a year now. They run very quiet and have been extremely reliable. I travel for days sometimes and having these makes it much easier to keep my params in check.

I have almost 20 of these running on my propagation systems, some of which have been in operation two years and yet to have one fail me. At this price point nothing else is even close.
nearly crash tank twice!!!!! By Todd on 11/17/2012
Todd wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Had this unit for about 3 weeks now. about 1 1/2 week ago, it overdose the soda ash solution. I set the pump to run 1.5 min for every 24. Unit sucked down almost a gallon of solution overnight. Thought I made a mistake in programming. So reset everything and tried again. Just came back and found the pump is leaking pass the pump. After the last assigned dose and pump stop, the liquid continue to leak into the tank. This time it dosed a 1/4 gallon before finding it. unit did not pinch the tube to stop the flow from continuing. No information on how to correct. No trouble shoot section or contact help.

I have two of these and use them for dosing 2-part calcium and alkalinity. Been using them about 18 months.
These are small enough to mount just about anywhere. I have them mounted in my tank stand and use an Apex controller to activate dosing at appropriate intervals. I use them on the mechanical switched outlets. I worry the digital outlets may not be able to detect the low power draw,
I gave 4 stars because the two units I have do not dose at the exact same rate... which leads me to believe they are not exactly 1.1 ml per minute. After the first couple of weeks of usage, I found I needed to run 1 pump about 3 minutes per day longer in order to dose my 2-part evenly. It's not such a big deal to me. I'm not sure if one of mine has something wrong with it, or if this is to be expected.... but I never bothered to call and complain about it.
