Dosing pumps?

I have been using s LiterMeter on my tech 75 to dose ferts for almost ten years. I am now planning to plant my 180 and would like to do robo- dosing on that one too. Any recommendations? My only issue with the LiterMeter is the cost.

I'm going to be using these Aptinstruments pumps for dosing a couple different things. I chose these based on quality and 4 rollers over the cheaper eBay options. I'm almost positive these are the same pumps and/or manufacturer BRS dosing pumps are based on.





from my iP 5 via Tapa.
