    Wanted: cheap, used, bare-bones dosing pump - peristaltic preferred.

    Post by ericpkeith on Tue Jun 04, 2013 3:45 pm

    I'm looking for a cheap dosing pump; I prefer peristaltic with a very low dosing rate. I'm not looking for anything fancy like, dual-head with controller. I know there is a cheap air-pump like dosing pump that people have good results...but it puts out too many gph and I don't want throttle it down with a pinch valve.

    Any recommendations?
    Any used one someone is willing to depart with?

    (Note: this is to top off a nano reef sump. Already bought a used JBA ATO).

    Thx.

    I'm considering the aqualifter but still researching peristaltic pumps. How much for a used one that is in good shape?

    Wow - thanks. Would you like a free coral frag? I still have some nuclear green candy cane available. Also, I live in Thousand Oaks - how about you? I can meet you wherever since you are making it free.
