DOSING UNITS - DOSING PUMPS
Dosing pumps is used for accurately adding certain supplements, foods and/ or used as a continuous water change system.
It works with a low revolution pump (Peristaltic) with multiple ribs to accurately force the liquid through the tubing to drip into your tank.
Most reefers use a dosing pump to accurately dose Calcium, Alkalinity, Magnesium and other trace elements so their parameters stay stable through regular and controlled dosing intervals.
These machines are more suited to the intermediate hobbyist but you should be familiar with them and what they do for later on.
If you are planning on keeping a full reef system then consider the dosing units available on the market and where you might install one in your home aquarium.
