Thank you. So after reading the manual, I can choose the number of dosings per day and mL/min. but I cannot set the time the pumps turn on. Is this correct? If so, then how long does the pump stay on for?
Currently, I have a 90g with 25 small sps frags and 8 euphyllia mini colonies and I'm manually dosing 8mL/DAY of alk. How would I program something that low using this doser?
This is what I did: pump 1 on 2 times per day at 4mL/min.
Great,.but I noticed when I calibrated the first pump, I was getting 130mL/min instead of 60mL/min. How would I adjust for this discrepancy? Are there faster motors/pumps the original owner could have put in?
130ml is not possible. At most you will see 60ml/min.
When you calibrate, you are asked to enter the flow rate. That is where you enter the amount of ml that was dispensed in the one minute of calibration. This info will tell the pump how long to run so it gives you the requested dose amounts.
When I calibrated, I did select 004mL/min for flow rate, and manually held pump on for one minute and it dosed 130mL in that minute. I do see that changing flow rate does not change the speed of the pump, but why am I getting such a large amount in the one minute during calibration. Going out of town for 2 weeks and hoping to get this dialed in prior to my departure.
