Easy way to dose Randy's Two Part Solution?

I am finding it tedious to constantly have to dose Randy's Two part solution. Is there some sort of easy DIY gadget that you guys have used with past experience to ease the process of dosing?

I'll give a bump because I'd like to know the answer too. Not fun dosing every morning manually. Maybe a post in the chemistry forum will get some answers.

Get a dosing pump. dosing pump It may be a little cost up front, but saves you a tremedous headach. If you want to go cheaper, get a referbished medical IV dosing pump off of ebay. This is the one I have. I love it. been using it for years with no problems!

In one of my tanks, I add the alk part to the top off reservoir and dose the calc and mag every time I fill the reservoir. It doesn't have any hard corals in it though, so I don't know if this would be stable enough in a high demand application. My other tank, with stonies, I dose kalk through ATO.
Think for yourself. Question authority.

Dosing pumps are the way to go. I got this one from Innovative Aquatics - which is Reef Dosing Pumps. I don't know if this one is still available, since he only links to the accessories page...

It works great; absolutely zero dosing hassle.
