Well, with the $5 shipping option for all of this together, I don't think I would have saved a tremendous amount by getting a timer that was $9 cheaper from somewhere else, but who knows. Oh well. Whats ~$5.

Yeah, wasn't sure if you had Harbor Freight stores down there in the sticks.

The tom aqualifter isn't a peristaltic pump. It's a diaphragm pump. It's like an air pump with a contracting and relaxing diaphragm that pumps liquid instead.

Neat build...Never thought about doing it that way. How much fluid per minute do you get?

I basically copied Neilan's build and I get anywhere from 100 to 150ml, depending on how full the container is. I averaged out 15 doses and came up with 125ml.
