    I saw in your post that you have Coral Box Doser. I plan on ordering one.
    I also see that you used the Mur-Lok connections.

    My dosing containers have Mur-Lok 1/4 inch push connects.
    (I JUST BOUGHT THE TRIGGER DOSING CONTAINERS FROM BRS YESTERDAY!)

    Questions:
    Do I need to order 1/4 inch push connect barb stems to go into the dosing containers that have preeixsting Mur-Loks?
    Does the airline tubing from Coral Box Doser fit into this? Or do I need certain adaptors?
    Did you use RO line from the Mur-Lok Dosing container?
    How have you liked the Coral Box Doser?

    Thank you so much for helping figure out what I need to order to make this function.

    You will need the stem/barb adapters. The airline tubing will not make a secure connection on its own. I put a slight amount of silicone around the barb and push the hose onto the connector. Then seat the stem securely into the murlok piece for leak free operation.

    If you use RO tubing, that can be inserted directly into push connect fitting on the Triggers.

    I hope you don't mind if I borrow your idea of color coding the lids.

    I know this thread is about a year or so old but do you think a container like this would work? I wasn't sure all dosing containers I have seen have the connection at the top but if I could have it at the bottom this would be prefect for me?
