Arrow Wanting to setup an ADS (auto doser system) not sure on how to do it for EI?

Currently im dosing Estimative Index, just the standard routine amount.
I do macro's one day, micros the other. So on so forth.

Due to me being Very busy- i would like to invest/setup a Auto dosing system!
Im not really sure on how to go about it, after reading some articles and seeing some products it makes more sense.
I've narrowed down my products to these:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KANTID6...v_ov_lig_dp_it

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LYUPONZ...v_ov_lig_dp_it

I couldn't find a product better than the Jecod DP-2,
So im confused as to how i would program the Jecod, to dose 1 of something 1 day, then the OTHER thing, another day.... Could it do this? maybe im over thinking it. Most of the reviews said that the instructions for the machine were incorrect and explained how to set it up but i didnt see anything on Dosing X1 - 1 day and skipping X1 the next day, whilst on that (next) day dosing X2, then the next day skipping X2 and dosing X1.

Without a manual, it's hard to say.
Found it
https://www.theaquariumsolution.com/...p-2_manual.pdf

looks like you can program interval days up to every 30 days.

A bit late to the thread here, but:

Are you wanting an off the shelf system or willing to spend an evening setting up one? I've got a Neptune Apex and 4 peristaltic pumps that handle my dosing for me. I make up my liquid ferts in 2000-4000 ml batches and then just turn the pumps on time up or down if I want more or less. 4000ml lasts two months in a 180 gallon.

I use GHL dosers I have 4 units that connect together and dose various chemicals to different aquariums as well as do ATO duties. The GHL dosers can be used separate from a controller if you want them to the SA model has a controller built into it.

Here is the older version that is a bit cheaper. These are heavy build German made units that last for ever.
