Apex DOS or dosetronic or CR?


Recommended Posts

  • SRC Member

Been into reefing about 3 months+ now. And decided to finally get a dose pump, so am wondering if i should get Apex controller + Apex DOS + neptune trident (when release) or Alkatronic + dosetronic. 

Have another thought of getting CR instead on dose pump. Can anyone please advise on the pros and cons of CR compared to dose pump?

Depends on Yr wallet and Yr reefing style. Just remember no 1 method is maintenance free. Old skool method still can work. CR... Follow by normal dosing pump and to latest computerised dosing equipment. For old skool method, wont go outdated and easily get support. For newer computerised system, do consider the support in long run and at what stage the product is in. Many a times, we may jump in during pioneer stage.... Issues, outdated, newer improved version, etc.

Not necessary you need to go for alkatronic or apex, normal dosing pump can also do the job. A normal dosing 4 channel pump should be less than 200 and if you worried Abt precision, can get more reputable one which cost less than 400, and usually they have add on units which can make up to easily a total of 7 to 8 channels. Cost will still be less than 800. CR setup, the initial stage is crucial to get the setting right and thereafter also like autorun. Only issue is chokage. For dosing, much easier to setup but complacency and chokage will happen also as few forgotten to top up the solution, choked, etc.

Yes, the newer one all is WiFi enabled...not bad... But u still need to check chokage and also replenishment. Over the years.... Branded or new equipment out to the market... Maybe due to poor demand, sales, support, etc, vanished in the market. Hence u need to consider this when buying. One way is online but whether worth the efforts. All the best and good luck.
