Automatic Dosing

Does anybody know of an automatic doser available that i can program. because with my hectic schedule it is hard for me to stick to my dosing schedule.

Eheim makes something called a liquidoser, but they're not cheap and I don't know how usable.

dang that thing is expensive. They want $78 for that little thing. Now that could still be possible if i am able to premix all of the ferts i need for a week together at the correct ratios and then fill the container on the doser. Do you know if that would cause any adverse affects mixing all of the firts together?

i learned the hard way ur not supposed to dose phosphate and iron the same day. they end up cancelling each other out (maybe they bond into something unuseable, not entirely sure) but this also makes it harder for nitrates to be uptaken too.

Here's the information I dug up on some automated solutions when I was researching this topic.
