If you have a farely large tank and lots of space you'll eventually find a little constraint as the max ml/min is 120. But so far I haven't heard much issues with it.

A 3 roller head would allow for a higher dosage.
Heads are inexpensive & I wonder what shipping to the west coast would be, to NY IIRC it was $32.

Not yet, figured it would go on with a tubing change, whenever that will be.

Just a quick update on this, my pump now has a very audible "squeak" that can be heard outside of a closed cabinet, with just under 6 months of use. I'm going to replace the head, unless someone else has any ideas. Overall, I'm pleased as I received mine from AliExpress for just under $200, but the squeak is very annoying.

A new head is $5, either 3 or 6 rollers.
Shipping is the killer.
Let me know what it is for you.
It was $32 to LI,NY

So maybe we should all stock up on heads at once.

Great it doesn't cost much but a shame they're so cheap you have to replace them every 6 months. Hope the rest of the pump keeps up.

Very interesting, seems like Vinny is clued in on the 3 roller head. I'd be up for a group buy on heads and tubing if I buy this pump. Will probably wait until black friday and see if BRS discounts it a little. I have gift cards to use up.
I'll go back in this thread but can anyone describe what connectors are needed to adapt this to my Geo CR?
I have a 130 gallon system so I don't think it would need more that 50-80 ml per min. Will have to experiment.

The head is held on the shaft by an Allen head screw in the center of the rollers.
Hi Vinny,

Where did you order the 3 and 6 head rollers from?

Iíve ordered stuff from Alie Express and stuff from China through eBay before and it typically took 1 to 1.5 months for the stuff Iíve ordered. Note that Iíve neber ordered Kamoer pump from China before.

Hi Vinny, interested to see how you like the 3 roller. I've had my kamoer and CRX on line for 3 days. 12ml per min and 6.70 - 6.87 geo CR624 with reborn tank DKH 8.5. Seems ok, working and minimal sound.

How much to ship? Got a link?

Joe

To be perfectly honest I still have it in the bag with the spare 6 roller.
To get a higher Alk reading I have been slowing my water through the reactor.
I am probably less than half what I started with.
If I blink the rollers look like they are standing still.
Joe - At that flow rate I doubt you would need the 3 roller head.
