    calibrating Jebao doser

    Hi all,
    Finally after so long (11 months).
    I almost finish the setting up
    Of the doser....
    So for those who already use this
    Doser..... Did You calibrate the Pump
    With the Proper dispensed Amount????

    Well if you haven't.... I suggest to go ahead
    And do it well worth to dose the closest
    Amount you setup with....
    Took me 10 minutes TOTAL to check all 4 pumps, they are all different..
    I opened each other to check the
    Inside but nothing is wrong, tubing, rollers, and casing were all fine
    So is it maybe in the motor?????
    Got few pics to follow very soon

    doser

    here a few pics as mentioned before

    here I had to build a little shelf for the container



    All looks good




    I did use my desk so it is about 2 1/2 feet from the middle of the jug, I did use simply water to calibrate
    the pumps



    this is an 100 ml container that I did use for the testing



    and now Look at the second line of the chart... those are the number
    of the pump when reached the 100 mls...... all different..

    tonight if I have time I will test all the pumps with the dosing and see if they dispense the proper amount
    according to these numbers

    done with the doser...

    done with the doser...

    and I have to Thank Mitchel for the container..

    and also I want to mention that I'm using some extra silicone tubing
    from an old Ozone generator it will not hardened like the regular tubing


    I cant set up the KALK pump because it doesnt fit the shelf and I dont have enough Tubing
    but will do this week for sure...

    here are a few pics of the finished work

    home made holder



    hard tubing to insert in the holder





    and here it is finished and running

    For those of us using the Jebao doser please make mental note of the rate of use for the liquid as I found after 8 months one of my pumps Port #2 was only working intermittently
    so rechecked the calibration and then decided to move the alk to a different port as I was only dosing Mag, Cal and Alk.

    I let it run dry for a few days a Luke had informed me that this can cause issues
    need to take the time to take it apart as they supply a spare head
    .

    Mmmh I see that a float sensor
    Connected with the apex, would work to prevent this.
    I was thinking to plug the doser to the ac8
    And set a profile of the PH above 8.5 then off
    I heard that some tubing it keeps on dripping even after the dosed amount
    And that scared me, because as you would remember
    I had an accident where my 1 gallon Kalk
    Drained in a couple of hours spiking the ph
    And bad result
