Aqua Medic Reefdoser Dosing Pump Twin 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.

The Aqua Medic Reefdoser is one of those highly anticipated products that brings a smile to the face of every reef hobbyist that sees one. The Reefdoser can independently run up to 4 dosing pumps. The integrated controller allows for precise adjustment of the on/off cycle duration for each pump over a broad time span - anywhere from seconds per minute to hours per day. The Reefdoser can automate many tasks in your aquarium system: - regular dispensing of trace elements and fertilizers into salt and freshwater systems - controlled addition of two part calcium additives in separate intervals - accurate dosing of Kalkwasser into reef tanks - regular feedings of live phytoplankton and zooplankton

    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

    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.

    Excellent!

    Comments: The aqua medic works extremely well when setup properly. Instructions are not the best but they have a help number which is useful. Can program pumps individually and deliver the volume based on elapsed time since pump is of one speed. In power failures you must restart but program remins intact in memory. Best pumping system I have ever used.

    Great, but use check valve! Product Review by Paul (Posted on 6/16/08)

    Great!

    Comments: I was ready to return this unit as useless until I finally noticed the Tips and Tricks section of the product page here on Marine Depot!

    The manual doesn't tell you this: If you install the pump where it is above your source, you MUST use a check valve on the INPUT side (the manual shows the check valve on the output side). Without the check valve, the pump is never able to draw the additive up out of the reservoir, it just goes up one inch, then right back down, over and over.

    So, it's not nearly as foolproof as the LitreMeter III I run on my other tank, but at less than half the price, I'd say it's worth the hassle factor. The physical build quality of this unit is impressive, better in fact than the much more expensive LitreMeter.

    Good but over priced Product Review by Chuckb (Posted on 6/20/07)

    Great!

    Comments: Somewhat difficult to program (1980's technology) but reliable and accurate. For what you get a bit expensive but no problems in 6 months
