How much lift distance can they pump, are they strong enough to pump up from below a tank? I've been looking at these too.lol

Stanley digital timers from Amazon, I had below the tank plenty of lift at 5 or so foot didn't try more, it was easier to set up on the side

A full parts list would be great. Looks like Tom's aqua lifters?

That's sweet! I had heard that Tom's lifters aren't very consistent, but it appears to not be the case with yours. Auto-dosing is for sure the way to go when you choose to dose daily. Nice job getting your's put together.
