Pump Works Great - Fittings have Problems By Lawrence on 11/5/2015
Lawrence would recommend this product to a friend
I recently bought the BRS 2 Part Doser. The pump itself works great. It is dead quiet and delivers the solution at a steady rate of 2ml/min (follow instructions about calibrating the pump!). The problems I have had were 2-fold. First the mount for the pump is mediocre. The screws for it are mounting in drywall. If you mount into wood you to get your own flat-head screws. The mount is flimsy and I have yet to get the pump to slide onto it securely. The issue is with the mur-lok bulkhead fitting for putting a straight tube into the solution jug and attaching it to the pump intake tubing. It continually leaked air despite a number of attempted fixes. I finally scrapped for another solution. I can NOT recommend the mur-lok bulkhead fitting.

Works just like they say they will. My corals have opened up more since I started using this with the BRS 2 part.
Great 2 Part Doser By John on 6/14/2015

I bought 2 of these to replace an all in one unit similar to the Bubble Magus. These things are huge compared to the pumps in my old unit. Both pumps have a flow rate of 1.67ml per minute, not the 1.1ml as advertised. I hooked them up to Reef Keeper Lite and they are working great so far.
Great Pump By Brad on 6/1/2015

I bought 2 pumps to dose my tank with calcium and alkalinity and they worked great. When I set them up and calibrated them, they were a little over 1.1 per min. so I had to re calculate but wasn't a big deal.

These are great little pumps. Kind of a large footprint

Nice and simple pump for dosing. Very quiet and seems to be working well. Comes with tubing and calibration cup.
Great doser pump By Eric on 4/21/2015
Eric would recommend this product to a friend
I bought two of these doser pumps for dosing 2 part solution. So far so good, 2 weeks in. One pump is a little faster than the other, so I left it on calcium since an overdose of calcium is less worrysome than an overdose of alkalinity.
They're running on my Reefkeeper Lite. When using with a controller (which you should do as they should not run for long periods of time consistently) you should put them on mechanical relay switches instead of the solid state switches, as the solid state may not switch them off due to the low power draw of the pumps. Google Triac and your controller name to find out more.

I ordered this doser for my Aquaripure vodka filter. I don't have to get someone to dose the filter twice a week while I'm gone. Makes my life much simpler.
Great pumps, watch the flow rate By Chad on 4/13/2015
Chad would recommend this product to a friend
These pumps are working great so far and are a good value. However, I bought two for dosing and noticed they flow at different rates, one is much faster than the other so I have had to play around with the timing to get the dosing correct. One is right on at 1.1 ml per minute but the other is almost 2ml per minute.
Good ATO Pump By Glenn on 4/13/2015

Use this on my 45 gallon for a ATO pump. Works great but was hard to prime and is a little loud.
Great quiet pumps, but need to be upgraded for use with Apex By Vincent on 3/30/2015
Vincent would recommend this product to a friend
The reviews here say it all. Great pumps! However if you are going to use this on an APEX you are limited to 2 ports (4/8). If you want to use it on the other ports you will want to get one of these or similar for each pump (Woods 4325C Single Outlet Power Adapter Plug) BRS I suggest you start selling these....
Highly recommended By cvicente on 3/30/2015

Very impressed with the overall construction. Nothing best on this price range, I'm currently using the unit for Mg dosing. Would recommend it without hesitation

Ordered two and have not looked back as far as dosing. I use with the BRS additives and my corals could not be any happier!
Near perfection By Old Salt on 1/17/2015
Old Salt would recommend this product to a friend
After years (literally) of dosing 2-part by hand, I bought two of these pumps during the Black Friday 2014 sale. Due to the tight space in my stand/sump area, installation took a bit of thought and time. But once up and running, they are, as my teenage daughter would say, "just sick." I control them with my Reefkeeper Lite's multi-timer function and the levels are always spot on. And now I don't have to train my neighbors in the fine art of dosing 2-part!
Great! By Jeff on 1/11/2015

I bought 2 and have them controlled by my reefkeeper. Easily dose 2.2ml for 24 hours and keeps everything stable.
Great Dosing Pump for Kalkwasser By Jim on 1/9/2015
Jim would recommend this product to a friend
We're using this pump for Kalkwasser dosing from reservoir in basement to display tank upstairs. It works fine, and doses a very slow drip, so can run all night to keep the pH stable.
Perfect inexpensive way to dose By June2881 on 12/31/2014

I had a calcium reactor running on my sps dominant tank for 8 months but just did not like the inability to keep track of all the elements being dosed. Switched over to brs two part with Red Sea additives and couldn't be happier. I have sent in my water to be tested by triton through uniquecorals and nothing but green
Great little pump By 200 Gallon Reefer on 12/24/2014

Got this pump to dose my 2-part alkalinity solution. Provides a nice slow steady drip and is dead silent. The first time I turned it on I couldn't tell it was running until I saw it slowly turning. Comes with input and output tubing and was super easy to set up. I'm using my Reef Keeper as a timer and it's keeping my alkalinity right where I want it. I would definitely recommend this pump for dosing.

Been using two of these for dosing calcium and alkalinity for 6 months now. The units are solid and reliable. I'm using the hamilton digital timers to control the dosing.

Exactly what I needed. By Matt on 12/9/2014
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
Easy to set-up. Easy to calibrate. Works great with controllers for consistent dosing. I used 30 minutes to calibrate my pumps instead of the recommended 10 and I think I got a bit more accuracy with my dosing. Both were very close to the 1.1mL per minute rate, but not spot on so don't forget to calibrate! Very quiet operation and my tank is already more stable.
Very well built unit. By Gary on 12/7/2014

The pump is larger than what I expected, but very well built. The hose attachment fittings are secure and ridged. The tubing is supplied with each pump as well. They were recommended by another reefer that has used 3 pumps for over 3 years with no issues.
Got 3 for my tank By Sean on 12/4/2014
Sean would recommend this product to a friend
I got 3 of these for my tank (Alk, Cal, Mag). I wasn't sold on the reliability of the 3-in-one dosers. Since this equipment can potentially crash a tank, I went with what I felt was the safest solution. I have each of my 3 installed with digital timers.
I wished they had timers that were adjustable down to the second instead of just minute. It would really help people with smaller tanks.
Set up was easy and the product is solid. You can tell its well built all around.
