I guess I'll have to wait till I get my equipment to see what kind of setup I will like, I believe the pump is 50 ml/min.

You should:

-Measure your daily evap rate
-Calibrate (measure pump output in mL/min)

- Using the max # of dosing per day, calculate the required mL/dose

- Using the mL/dose calculate dosing run time based on the ACTUAL pump output

Then draw a water line on your sump to double check that your scheduling is correct & you are maintaining an appropriate water level.
