You are only as strong as your weakest link.
Pacific Sun is breaking the design barriers which have historically limited the precision of aquarium dosing pumps. By using a variable speed motor, they were able to get the original Kore 5th increments down to an already more-than-capable 0.1ml (for more details, read our article about this impressive dosing pump). However, basic drip dispensers – basically airline tubing dangling open-ended over water – limited the Kore 5th ability to dispense higher precision drips. Even something seemingly as trivial as evaporation can affect drips.
Pacific Sun has introduced the DropDose, a clever solution to overcome this engineering limitation. The DropDose is a five channel acrylic drip dispenser designed with humidity chambers to negate the effects of evaporation on dosing accuracy. If you’re an obsessive aquarist seeking minute dosing precision, the Kore 5th + DropDose was made for you. For the rest of us, the DropDose is still an elegant drip dispenser.
The DropDose (along with the new Kore 5th software/firmware patch) should be available in the first week of September, 2014 for a MSRP of €29.
Sometimes it’s the little things.
