Dosing pumps

Curious what you recommend for dosing pumps and why please.

I want to dose vinegar, Alk, Mag & Calcium.

Thinking stand alone dosing unit as I don't own controller like apex.

Thanks!

Got a budget?
Anything from a Jebao DP4 to a GHL...All typically get the job done...Some arent as proven reliable..
I run a Jebao...Never failed on me in 6+ years used daily multiple dosings a day

Check Bulkreefsupply or whatever to see your options..

I don't really have a budget in mind. I guess I can afford the more expensive doser like the GHL. But I don't want to pay the extra cash for it if it isn't any better or more reliable than other dosers. I've heard GHL have had LCD issues so you can't see what your programming anymore making it useless.

I just want to make sure it's reliable, somewhat easy to program on the unit itself since I don't own any controllers.

I'll look into Jaebo ... Thanks!

The last GHL doser that used LCD screens was almost 10 years ago. The current model is GHL Doser 2.1 and can be controlled by any phone.
