Aqua Medic Reefdoser Dosing Pump Information



Are you regularly adding different solutions to your tank for varying purposes? Do you own a coral tank, which you need to feed with live microorganisms like plankton and algae? If so, then you will do well with the Aqua Medic Reefdoser Dosing Pump Twin on hand from Pet Store. This is every aquarist's and fish keeper's dream come true. You can buy this from any local pet store with a low price, in spite of its amazing benefits. It can be used to maintain both fresh and marine water tanks.

The Aqua Medic Reefdoser Dosing Pump Twin allows you to do four things at once by using a single dosing device. First, it regularly dissolves substances and elements that your aquatic inhabitants need. This also prevents your aquarium from becoming dirty easily. Secondly, if you own coral tanks, this product enables you to control the supplementation of components that are crucial to your reef life's survival, such as calcium. Thirdly, with this product, it is now possible for you to pour a precise amount of kalkwasser into the water. Lastly, it provides your friends with microorganisms at a fixed and scheduled time.

With the Aqua Medic Reefdoser Dosing Pump Twin, all your dosing needs are solved, and you wouldn't have a hard time in maintain your reef tank.

Tips


  • Use to dose two part calcium solutions, with the ability to separate the A & B doses with an appropriate time lapse to ensure they don`t interact within the sump volume.

  • Use to automate trace element additions to ensure exact dosages, added steadily over your desired time interval.

  • Use for regular plankton feedings from your Plankton Reactor or Plankton Light Reactor to keep a steady supply of live food available for your filter feeding invertebrates.

  • Using the included one-way check valve (always on the suction side) ensures positive progress of the fluid through the dosing line while eliminating back-siphoning.

  • Replace the persitaltic tube periodically, depending on severity of duty, to maintain performance.

    Does the job of a Ca reactor. Product Review by costomer (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Excellent!

    Comments: A fellow reefer and myself both bought a reefdoser twin a few months ago to dose 2-part Ca+Alk to our reef systems. We both agree that it is an excellent device that maintains those params very stable

    good, but WARNING!!! Product Review by Tim (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Comments: The pumping mechanism is great and works perfectly, even for tiny doses (like 1 drop).

    HOWEVER, I have a big problem with the design...the programming is ridiculous, I'm not even sure I want to keep the thing. It only allows you to program in "cycles," not by a clock. In other words, you can only have it dose, say, once per day, every hour, every half-hour, every 10 mins, every 5 hours...whatever "cycle" you want. IT WILL NOT LET YOU dose for only certain parts of the 24 hour day, say night-time. For example, I'd like to dose kalkwasser every hour from 10PM until 8AM, but there is no possible way to do this. If you think you can just set the whole system on a timer itself (so that it would only be powered at night), this won't work...the system resets after a power outage and you have to do a sort of soft reset (by pressing two buttons simultaneously) to have it start the programs again.

    The pumping operation is a perfect answer for dosing, but due to the lack of programming ability, I don't recommend this product, you'll only get frustrated trying to figure out how to "time" things for a decent "cycle."

    Comments: PRO: It does its job fine and reliably. CONS: Does not re-start after power failure, manual is hard to understand, consumable motor. Other than that, it's a great doser.

    Comments: My first unit had a bad computer. The replacement took almost two months, and the tech berated me on the phone for asking about spare computers that are apparently unavailable...

    Nice doser Product Review by RICK WAIBEL JR AKA ROCKITMAKR (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Excellent!

    Comments: Besides figuring out the instructions this is a nice doser. Also, use a small UPS in case of power failure.
