Please help me with coding. I need to dose an element just once a day, starting with a 1 minute dose. I would like it to dose at 10pm. Thereafter I should be able to increase the dose when needed. Thank you in advance from your help!

Are you looking for a code generator that’s used without a DOS?
If so

No Hitman, just the code. I tried looking at the generator and still couldn't find it/figure it out.

I think it would help if you told us what kind of dosing pump you are using.

The easiest way I can think of would be

If Time 22:00 to 22:00 then ON

As I recall, the “if time” statement turns on at second one and off at second 59. This means that entering 22:00 to 22:01 would actually give two minutes of on time, not one like you would expect. The example I gave above should turn on at 22:00:00 and off at 22:00:59. I’m on my phone, so I can’t verify this right now, but you should be able to check/verify that detail pretty easily.

Thank you everyone for your reply! I use the BRS 1.1ml doser and one of my systems doesn't need much alkalinity. I will try your suggestion Sleepydoc! Thank you!
