Hi. I have been researching a bit about dosing pumps, testing a couple of them, comparing features, etc. trying to find out the ideal feature set for nano reefers. I'm considering building a product prototype. I assume that most nano reefers use dosing pumps for: Carbon dosing (vinegar, nopox) Alkalinity Calcium Magnesium Perhaps additives like the ones from KZ (Zeovit). Some thoughts (product design goals): Must be able to dispense small doses with a good level of accuracy. 1ml accuracy? Adjustable flow rate from 5 - 14 ml/minute would be ideal? Good enough for the needs of most nano reefers? Must be compact. What do you think about a dosing pump that comes with a power supply for stand-alone use (with a separate timer, just like most people do with BRS and Drew's dosing pumps), but also has an optional cable for connecting it directly to the 24DC port of a Neptune Apex controller? Would that be a desirable option? Easily replaceable pump heads. Easy maintenance. Your feedback is appreciated.
Hi. The motors of my Jebao DP-4 Dosing Pump are corroding. Of the 4 pumps/heads, the 2 that are being used for dosing vinegar are the only ones getting their motor pins corroded. I'm guessing that somehow, a little bit of the vinegar gets its way out of the head tubing and into the motor pin. Nothing is wet in there... So it must be very little or even some kind of fume, gas or exudation. Anyone experienced this? Any ideas of what could be happening? Also, if you are dosing vinegar via dosing pump, I would like to know which dosing pumps are you using without issue (let's say for a year+). Thanks.
