    Some reefers are really using their Marine Magic auto dosers cleverly and thought it worth sharing.

    Pump A : Seachem Reef Fusion 1 - Maintains Calcium
    Pump B : Seachem Reef Fusion 2 - Maintains Alk

    (When 2 part used this will also maintain your Magnesium)

    Pump C : Auto Top off with RO - you will have to tweak to find your evaporation rate and set Pump C to maintain water level ;) No float switch getting stuck and nasty overflows :)

    what about using the auto doser to do daily water changes on your system so that you dont even have to do a big water change and upset everything in the tank

    Pump A : Takes water out of the sump
    Pump B : Takes water from the newly mix sea water conatiner to last a week or more

    (When 2 part used this will also maintain your Magnesium)

    Pump C : dose what ever other supplement you need

    changing 40l a month why not change 1.2 l every day

    what is the maximum amout that can be dosed in a 24 hour period

    would this be a good idea

    Another great idea, I recommend you dose only about a liter a day, all peristaltic pumps have a wear and tear factor, (pumps are very cheap to replace) I'm using them on 500ml per day and my pumps are running for over 2 years already without any issues.

    I don't think I have any customer dosing over a liter of supplement so cannot comment as to exactly how it will go.

    They were designed to dose tiny amounts at a time . With anexpected life of between 150 and 200 hours , I personally wouldn't use it in place of a ato

    you right, all dosing pumps wear and tear so the less they work the better :)

    Sorry guys our dosers will be arriving in 4 weeks time ordered 3 weeks ago. We are now doing shipping instead of airfreight to keep costs as low as possible. We will be receiving 50 units so we will be fully stocked soon.
