They haven't reached the crowd funding goal yet and there is only one week to go to make it happens.

I have installed an Alkatronic made by Focustronic! It is a standalone alkalinity monitor with doser!

I chose this out of other brands because it is a standalone unit without relying on other equipment.

As it has only one pump for dosing alkalinity so I have to use Tropic Marin's Carbo-Calcium (KH+CA) which is a mixture of KH and CA. Tropic Marin also has another product called All-For-Reef which is a mixture of KH, CA, and MG, but it is more expensive. I figure I can dose magnesium manually once in a while.

I didn't even know such product even existed. Do you consider stable ALK is that important that a device like this will help?

A stable tank will surely help. It can keep Alk within 0.2dkh.

Testing alk manually is very easy but how many of us will test it frequent enough? This unit can test it at least twice a day or even once every two hours!
