The Aquadoser is a system by Kent Marine used for dosing. I want to use it for topping off evaporated water while on vacation. I was wondering if any one has used it and if it was difficult to set up. I am trying to find a users manual online but have had no luck.
The aquadoser is just a giant IV drip type system. The problem with dripping your top off is establishing rates. Some days my system uses 2.5 gallons and other 3.25. In all honesty its ok for dripping kalk at night but a nurse type system is probably the easiest. The nurse style is accurate (keeps sump level perfect) and very easy with no actual plumbing.
Do you have an estamate of your daily usage??
Don is right. I suggest that you use this like several days before you take your vacation... so you can actually check if the this drip system can take care of the variable evap taking place in your tank.
Usually, this drip system are being use for topping off limewater but I suggest that you dont use limewater but instead straight fresh water to supply it so that you wont have clog issues while on vacation.
I picked one up from Petco because it was on clearance for $8. It's been great for dripping kalk overnight or top off water, but it's really not too reliable. It might be fine if you just drip top off water, but not for unmonitored kalk dripping, the kalk builds up really easily and makes it hard to control the drip. I wouldn't use it to drip anything but plain water for more than a day.
