Auto Dosing

Has anyone tried any of the auto dosing systems?

 

I really want to eliminate my inability to measure things from my grow but some of the systems cost around 1K which is waaaay too much for my little hobby :)

Simple ph down doser are alot cheaper there's a milwakee one that's comes with a doser

but the multi dosers are too expensive 

There are some arduino diy ones but too complicated for me lol

Thanks @doobie01 I will look at the Milwakee one. I have also been looking at some DIY videos on youtube and there is a arduino one there but it seems like there is no cheap solution (apart from manual) and there is considerable danger of death with DIY as I can bearly wire a plug :D

i havent found a cheap one but then would you trust a cheap one to dose correctly lol i think its playing a bit russian roulette with your crop .

 china is starting to knock out wifi ph monitors at £50 and wifi fish feeders etc with the help of all the arduino stuff so wont be long before a semi reliable multi dosing system is brought out i reckon 

i could follow a tutorial to make one but once again the coding would be from some random on the internet 

seen a clone of a guardian but quality looked poor in there promo pic and it wasnt that much cheaper 

my ph dosing solution will be something along the lines of a bluelab guardian connect and a seperate peridoser connected via wifi smart plug  so i can get a notification from the blulab then turn on doser for set amount of time and have a diluted 5 l bottle of ph down for it to draw from

EC can then be monitored automatic but changed by hand after a pen test check every couple of days.
