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 7/4/11

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 4/28/11

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 4/22/11

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 4/11/11

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.
Excellent Pumps for Stability By Drew on 4/6/11

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!

Don't know how I went so long without one. These make life so much easier. Very accurate. I have more time to spend with the tank.
Value and Performance By craig on 11/25/10

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 11/7/10

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....
Works Great By DAN on 10/31/10

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.

Like everyone else, I wish I would have seen the value in this sooner.
I love not having to think/worry about dosing every day.
I use it in combination with a controller to keep my pH on the money all day and night.
Get the two part kit here and two of these pumps, you will not regret the purchase!

I own much more expensive dosing pumps and the BRS is my favorite. I love the ease of set-up and operation. Calibrate it, plug it into a timer and dose as little as 1 ml to whatever amount you may need. I use them to dose 2 part, magnesium and potassium iodide.

I travel for extended times for my employer and I have recently started using the BRS 2 part formula. My wife does a great job in taking care of the regular maintenance while I am gone but she found it difficult to leave home for more than a couple of days in order to stay on top of things with our tanks. So I looked for a way to automate things for her. I buy most of my reef supplies from BRS so I looked there and found these dosers. They are the best equiptment purchase I have made since I went to MH lighting! Don't let your tank go without these! Super simple to set up!
