    Bubble Magnus doser questions.....

    I guess since my warranty expired already and I haven't even opend up the box it's time to set them up... Ahahahaha. The directions don't say much so maybe someone has some advice here... About how long do you think I can have the tubes that draw liquid into the pump be??? I wanted to mount these in a cabinet next to my tank with the resiviour under the tank so the incoming lines would be like 10ft is that okay or do they need to short as possible???? It also says to not place them in moist or humid environment does anyone have them inside there stand with the sump??? Just asking in case I go that route... Tia

    mines in my sump- and the way they work is with 3 rollers that trap water in between 2 plastic pieces and it moves it so i dont think distance playes a role in this.

    I have mine mounted inside my stand where my sump is. I really cant give you an advice on the 10ft length as mine are only a foot or two long in length. I would think that once the tube is filled with liquid it should work the same not matter the length of tubing but im not positive.

    AS long as the santoprene tubing is new, it should create a good enough seal that you have no siphon and it won't really matter how long the supply lines are. It's going to take a while to fill the tubes up to get it ready for dosing though. The tubes should be replaced as soon as you start getting a back siphon (the ones on my BRS dosing pumps last about a year, supposedly)
