I like the pump but this is the second one I've owned in two years both of them the gears stripped out. The 1.1 ml pumps work Great had them for two years with no problems

I bought 2 pumps and calibrated their flow at 1.2 ml/min each. They are working flawlessly.

I really like these pumps for ATO on tanks up to 150 Gallons. Anything tanks larger than that with a lot of evaporation will work these pumps for hours. At least it did on my 700 gallon system.
CON-- The last one I ordered did not have the mounting plate in the box. I contacted Customer Service and did not get a response back.

This is the second pump in less than 2 years. First one the gears stripped out on it. This one completely Froze on me. Haven't had time to take it apart yet.
They Should last longer than 1 year. Guess I will look at a different brand

Working great to ATO with my reefkeeper I set it to run for 5 minutes once the switch calls for water. So far so good

As the title says, It's a great product for the price. No problems at all. Functions beautifully! My 1 complaint(If Any) would be it is a little noisy. Honestly, It isn't a big deal in my case. Otherwise, I love the doser. I would recommend it to anyone looking for one.

I've had my brs dosing pump in use for maybe a couple years under very limited use as it only ran for 30-45 minutes once a day. Gears finally went out on it(they sounded terrible for the last 8 months or so). If you get this pump on sale it's probably a decent buy but otherwise $90 for a 1-2 yr pump isn't so great.

After less than a year of actual use on this pump it has failed. It is paired with my reef keeper system, and has been in actual use for 1.5 months .Grinding sound like anything with gears would make during a failure (like grinding gears in a car) pump has power but arm no longer spins. Definitely glad this didn't happen two weeks ago when we were on vacation. I really like bulk reef supply, but this pump is a POS put your $80 towards a better made system.

Does what it is supposed to. Only have it running a week, so I cannot comment on the quality. Seems to be built nicely.

Good for an ATO but wouldn't use it for KALK. By b on 6/2/13

I'm now on number #2 the first pump lasted 2-3 years it still runs but has a horribly loud grinding sound for the past 6-8 months. Tapping it every once in a while quiets it down but not always. I did have an issue with it not working once but again tapping it got it going again. It's fine for a straight ATO, however I wouldn't run Kalk with it due to all the issues people are having. I would find a more precise way. 1.1ml pumps work amazing, it's a shame the 50ml have so many problems.
The second pump I just received just a few weeks ago already seems a lot better then the first. It's quieter right from the get go. If I can get 3 years out of this one I'll be happy.
Both pumps failed a little after 1 year mark. By PT on 5/24/13

Both pumps started to grind around 7-8 months and fail right after the 1 year warranty. I called BRS when the pumps started to grind and the help support reassured me that some noise was normal. I called after the pumps failed, mentioning the prior grinding and was assured that the pump was now out of warranty and nothing could be done.
