Hello, I’m think about getting this doser and I was wondering if you still like it? Any major issues and would you recommend it? Thank you.
Personally I wouldn't I have the dfp4
I purchased 11 to 12 months ago

Sorry but that looks like it was getting splashed with saltwater or sitting in water for a while. I does not look like a manufacturers problem.

I'll put a pick off where its mounted I honestly cant believe it
The question I've got is are they meant to be mounted in sump area?

Theres no splashing where this is
Its mounted above the return chamber
The only thing I can think of is maybe condensation? Not sure

Not sure how you can possibly blame manufacturer for this, unless it came direct from the factory soaking wet.

I still like my F4 but don't love it. I've had to reset it several times and sometimes I just can't connect to it forcing me to restart it and reprogram. I've also experienced a new problem where the internal clock is off by 4 minutes now. If it never lost it's connection it would not be a big deal but it took me a while to verify it was still actually dosing since every time I would check it wouldn't dose. I dose small amounts throughout the day and finally heard it go off.

Accuracy as far as dosing is still perfect. Everything else not so much.

I've had mine since it came out and no issues, once you know how to set it up. 10 out of 10!

I'd also buy one again - great for sub 1ml trace dosing - Only hiccup i had was i had to reroute the outlet tubing else i kept getting air in the lines. I have 2 @ 12 months old & they look 100% (they not in the sump area)
