Any update on the doser? I’ve dosed by hand for 1.5 years now, but think my tank would probably appreciate the added stability of 12 small doses a day instead of one large one
Soooooo... I don't know. I started just dosing ALK as that is all my tank seemed to consume. I was dosing 2 part and used their calculator to determine how much I needed. I tested day one and then tested again the next, saw the drop, and calculated how much I would need to replace each day. I set the amount and then tested again 3 days later, and my ALK was steady. YAY!!! I then decided to buy another one for Calcium. I set it up and the same steps as above. When I tested 3 days later, Calcium had still dropped. So I adjusted it up some tested 3 days later, and Calcium was steady. YAY!! But then I tested Alk, and it had dropped.
So, I don't know if my tank is using more or if the doser isn't accurate. I also can't rule out a testing issue.
My initial thought on it is that I enjoy the simplicity of the App. It is very easier to set your daily amounts and break it up into smaller portions. I test after a water change and then make a 1-time adjustment to bring the water back inline, and doing that is very simple.
