A quick update after spending more time with the doser.

I resolved issue (2) I posted earlier. Basically, before the first memory wipe, I backed up the original calibration numbers. After each memory wipes, I would load the calibration file. However, it turns out that the calibration file is either empty or corrupted. I would expect the software to give me an error. However, each time I load, it wouldn't actually tell me if its successful or not, and just give a progression bar. I tested last night and confirm that even though the progression bar reaches 100% each time, the calibration data did not actually load into the software. So I ended up having to un-prime all my dosing heads last night and recalibrate everything again. This solved issue (2).

Also, on issue (5), I found out what the clicking sound was. It was the sound of the alarm. Basically, I did not setup an "alarm type". So the clicking sound I guess is the
no alarm type" alarm type... Come on, again, can we please either make that drop down field mandatory or default to an audible alarm sound rather than clicking noise? And I found this out randomly today as the optical sensor, which I set as High Water Alarm, kept going off. Originally, all I heard was the clicking sound, then I saw the error message cycle on once every minute or so, and I realize that the optical sensor was triggering the alarm, which was the click click click noise. To make this even more interesting, my sump was not overflowing at the time. I took the optical sensor and wiped it down with dry tower... The alarming kept going off. And this is even after I reset the ATO alarm manually on the computer. Now the optical sensor is unplugged as well. I'll send another mail to Pacific Sun with a video of the faulty optical sensor / alarm.

So, a while back I made a thread and asked about which doser to buy to replace my Fauna Marin doser which served me well for many years, but the screen had become faulty.

This was the doser: basically a rebranded GHL unit.


After making a thread and asking about which doser to get, I decided on the Kore 5th:









This unit appears to be very well made. I love the magnetic stirrer; I am going to setup the unit to dose the following:

1. Calcium
2. Bicarbonate
3. Fauna Marin Colour Element A
4. Fauna Marin Colour Element B
5. Fauna Marin Colour Element C

At the moment I am going to use it to dose Ca and Alk. Mg I only need to dose occasionally. I am going to introduce the Colour Elements in a few months to tweak colours.

Having used various dosing equipment in the hobby (I've setup GHL/GRO Tec/Bubble Magus and other for my LFS) and used many at university, this unit feels solid.

Hooking up to my laptop was easy. I bought a Bluetooth dongle from ebay and it hooked up easily. At first I couldnt pair it with my laptop as I was using the wrong pairing code, but a quick search on RC revealed the pairing code as "1234"...yes, I skipped reading the bits of documentation that came with it.

Anyway, first impressions are: I LOVE THIS unit. It looks great and works fine. I needed a unit that will deal with the daily dosing requirements; but also be able to dose smaller amounts accurately. - This unit is supplied with a whole kit of various tubes and fine dosing bits; there is way more included here than I ever imagined.

There is so much the software can do. I am sure I'll be back here asking for help as I play around with the software.

I am using the software that came on the CD. Is there a newer software or any real need to download a newer software?

Heyyyy Sahin... This is a copy of what i posted in your other page.

Great you are liking the Doser as i am... Good unit. Last firmware version is 1.4g. Only downside that i see is that we have to be locally to connect to it. Wish Pacificsun develop something to access it remotely.

Here is the link for the last Manual and Firmware.

Does anyone know the exact ID/OD of the tubing inside the pump head? Need to replace mine and would like to step up to a nicer tubing that isn't fast-flow like the supplied Pharmed BPT size.

Guys, just FYI PacSun does have a CUBE (like AI director) that allows you to connect to the doser and lights via network instead of bluetooth.

I have my unit here and have read through the manual. Some more install instructions would not be bad, but looks fairly straight forward. I am looking forward to using this on my new set up. A well thought out and well built piece of equipment from what I can see.

As far as Canada ask Yorgos (PS USA) I am sure he can ship it to you.

Wow, that is cool. I need one of those bridge devices. But first must buy my DSLR and Apex Controller.

Can anyone confirm if device can be accessed from outside your home via online? I ask because then I can get my buddy to test my alk for me, as he is an SPS keeper, but I can make any changes to the doser MYSELF when away from home.

dosing bottles

Where can I get a hold of some dosing bottles that fit in the holder that can be added and removed easily?
