    in my old article DIY : 24/7 New Water Drip System it works great for chlorine. but when i found out about Chloramine in my water. That system will be useless when chloramine is in the water.

    So i start looking for NH2CL (Chloramine) Filters but it will leave ammonia in the water. and its expensive in a long to replace the filter.

    I call up my good friend JohnPTC. he mention to me about a dosing system call Dosmatic that he is using.

    Here is what you need
    • Dosmatic MiniDos 1%
    • Seachem Prime
    • In-line 1 Micron filter
    • Water Container (for diluted prime)
    • In-line Carbon (Optional)
    • In-line UV Sterlizer (optional)
    • Pressure Gauge (Optional )
    • 1/4 Tubing

    Here is a diagram (click diagram to enlarge)

    What is Dosmatic MiniDos 1%


    What is Seachem Prime

    Here is how a Dosmatic Works

    [​IMG]

    Prime is a highly concentrated solution.

    1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L = 1: 40,000

    Dosmatic MinoDos 1% have a lowest injection rate at 1:500 so you need to diluted the prime with RO/Distill water.

    Although Dosmatic has a 4ML model (1:4000) but you still need to dilute the prime and the cost of the machine is 3x more.

    i did some calculation for Dosmatic MiniDos 1% when its set at 1:500. You need to Dilute Prime 1:80 first before pump in the the Dosmatic MinoDos 1%


    here is the final product

    That's a neat gadget but it would be one expensive mistake if it fails to dose correctly for me. I will stay with the old fashion method.
