    I am waiting on my new trigger acrylic sump to come in and was wondering if it's safe to dose vinegar into the sump? I will have it on a dosing pump delivering 30 ml over 8 hours. I have read where you can't store vinegar in acrylic but wasn't sure about dosing because it will be very diluted.

    That's no concern. You can probably also store it in acrylic, but can't see a reason you'd want to. lol

    Thanks, I planned on just using the bottle the vinegar comes in and drilling a hole in the top of it.

    That's exactly what I did, dosing from the 1 gallon plastic bottle with tubing running through a cut in the plastic lid.
