|vidiots||I hope those arent the same kinda pumps I tried the 1st time. On the one I bought the part that spins is connected by a tiny square plastic shaft in the middle. This shaft stripped it self the second time I turned it on and the part that is supposed to spin nolonger did. I was really bummed about it, which is why I went with my second choice of the aqualifter pump which has worked like a champ since.|

Gotta Love it:
I called them on Wed 5/30 to check the shipping. They said it shipped the day before--Tues 5/29.
I just checked the UPS Tracking number--it shipped Thurs 5/31 !!! The day After I called.
I guess APT is just one of those companies.

Lol told you so! One month...
I guess I was lucky, both my pumps look identical, like the one to the right in your picture. One of them is silent, the other one noisy... I blame the different speed, requiring different "transmissions".

Update: Received my 2 pumps--took 1 month. I ordered 2 Identical pumps. Pix of the differences below:
The "Stickers" on each motor are identical--but the motors sure aren't. One even has resistors (or something) on the plug-in wire. One pumps 12ml in 5 mins--the other only 9mls.
Pump 1 pumps 2.36mls/min
Pump 2 pumps 1.8mls/min
2.36mls is quite a ways off from 1.5 +/-10-20%
So, now I guess I get to spend another $20 on another timer to get what I need accomplished........

No. Their checkout deal didn't work: Told me that 3 different CCs were all invalid numbers--in IE and FF. I called them and they told me they would get them out next week.
We'll see how it goes. I was just messin' with Ya.......

That's funny, I ordered two of those pumps myself, and after a month or so they finally shipped (or so I hope).
I plan on dosing straight Flourish/Iron, so settling shouldn't be an issue (I'll shake them up once a week or so).

|crazy loaches||I was thinking small powerhead myself, but that might be overkill if nothing is really needed.|

|dodgefreak8||why don't you just put an airstone on a timer into the bottle. that will stir it up won't it?|

If I put 12tsp of dry powder in 1 gal of water and by the time the reservior needs refilled there is say 1/16tsp of sediment at the bottom of the reservoir that is no big loss because 99.5% was still dosed to the tank.

|crazy loaches||I've also wondered if there was a maximum recomended concentration?|

|donaldbyrd||If you are getting sediments in your bottles, could that be a sign that you are mixing the solutions to concentrated?|
