    Try E-Bay

    Derik ... check out E-Bay for reconditioned medical dosing pumps. they are very reliable, and accurate. Do you remember seeing the one on the ledge in the basement at my house? I paid less that 150 for it including shipping

    Looks good to me. HOWEVER make sure that the pumps dosing RANGE will do what you want it to do for you. They usually have a minimum and maximum dosing range. Some pumps will also take 2 or 3 hoses and allow dosing of 1, 2 or three fluids at once and the dose can be managed by using different sized tubing. In a nutshell make sure the pump will suit your needs.

    these units can be used to dose ANY fluid at any rate that the pump will support.

    That's a good unit. There are many that come up on ebay. I've seen them go for as little as $12 US plus shipping.
