Question What peristaltic pumps for calcium reactor?

I was wondering what peristaltic pumps people are using for their calcium reactors? I want to use one on the Geo reactor I am going to buy. I know I can use a maxi-jet, but I have always had problems with my feed pumps. This seems like the answer to me. Any brand suggestions and places to buy would be great. The reactor is going on a 75 gallon sps tank so I would need to be able to accomodate low flow rates.
Thanks

I found this in a back issue of reefkeeping.www.watson-marlow.com/ for peristalic pumps. The article is reefkeeping.com/issues/2002-05/sh/feature/index.php. Hope this helps.

what about using a more reliable pump like an eheim... i thought this ca rxr was supposed to be pressurized by a feed pump like a maxi or a eheim and then the effluent released with a micro ball valve
