    Best Dosing Pump?, Feb 3, 2019

    @Toomnymods - Great question, GHL #MaxiSA dosing pumps are built solid there is no doubt about it but I am switching things up a bit in my build. Since I am a Bigtime Mac guy, I have decided to switch back over to all #Neptune gear so everything matches as far as my main controller and dosing pumps.
    I haven't even taken my new MaxiSA out of the box. It's on eBay - FYI. When I use to run my old #Neptune #DOS's for my AWC's, I would take out around 1 gallon a day for my mixed ref 120!

    Per GHL MaxiSA Specs you should be ok, these Stepper Motors are bigger then you think plus, its totally WIFI or you can use USB cor to your PC.
    Perfect for AWC and Continuous-use rated for max 350ml/min
    Tired of lugging those buckets around? Take the work out of manual water changes and let the GHL Doser Maxi do it for you. Conveniently schedule automatic water changes or trigger them as-needed.
    Need to continuously do larger water changes? No problem. Our brushless stepper motors are built and ready to withstand larger volume water changes.
    As with other peristaltic pumps which require a cool-down period, the Doser Maxi’s stepper motors can be run continuously for longer periods without needing a cooling period.
    For example, you can transport water for a water change at one time without needing a cooling period. Pumps are suitable for moving approximately 16,000 Liters (4,226 gal) of water.

    Ya got to admit this dosing pump for massive water changes does look nice and sexy!!

    QUESTION to @lbacha & @siggy - Should I install my #DOS in my garage and mount it above my 50 GALLON saltwater mixing station and run the dosing tubing around the house like the RODI lines or install it right under the cabinet since I will have plenty of room on my right side cabinet wall which I think might be the best place for it. Any Recommendations would be greatly appreciated? Also, ones I am done, you will see zero wires since I will tight them up with some #Raceway #Gateway #tracks!

    Almost completed one of my @MarineDepot Panels for all of my Apex gear. I will have on panel 1 for all of my ApexEL gear, 2 FMM modules, 1 WXM module and my Avast Marine breakout box plus, my Amazon Fire Table for a display.
    I had to get to FMM mods b/c one will be used as an Auto Top Off kit and my other FMM module is for my 3 - low profile leak detectors that I will be placing around my #Synergy CL-44 sump.

    Ones I get my WXM module which will be mounted between the 2 FMM mods. I still have some work to do since I haven't even plugged it in the controller yet. LOL :) Ones I get my #WXM module, then I will be mounting my Amazon Fire Display.
    Then this panel will be completed and off to the next! For the 2nd MD Panel which will have all of my pump controllers and my Reef Link, EcotechMarine Battery backups.
    I am still debating where I WANT to install my Neptune #DOS!


    One down & 1 to go

    @dantimdad - for the 92 cube, If I were you, I would take out a little less than a gallon per day if you're running the #DOS! If 1 gallon a day equals 3785.41mls, I would start trying around 3100mls per day and see how that goes for you or try less!!
