Feeding small amounts at frequent intervals is scientifically known to be the best of techniques for the benefit of both fish & filtration systems, and the computer controller with digital display allows just this. Up to 8 feeds a day over any given period are possible, with full control over the exact amount being fed.
The timer can be set for minutes & seconds, (with 1 second being the ultimate minimum), this makes the autofeeder suitable for the smallest of ponds. With the transformer integrated into the computerised timer the auto fish feeders are a breakthrough in both sophistication and exceptional value for money, and will be appreciated by all pond keepers who either have frequent holidays, or by those who are away from their ponds during most of the day.
The quantity of pellets dispensed is approx half a cupful in 1 minute which represents about 2 ounces of Tetra Koi Floating .
Models are available in three sizes - the Small PF1 (5 Litre pellets), Medium PF2 (10 Litre) - as photograph, and Large PF3 (20 Litre) , with the largest model measuring approx 530mm high x 275 dia.
All models are supplied with a delivery chute (for use where required). A close up photo shows this assembly. Where desired the auto feeder can be located away from the ponds edge, with the delivery chute outlet pipe extended by common pvc pipe.
Although the Fish Feeders are IP55 protected the computer programmer unit needs to be housed in a dry sheltered position. In instances where playful domestic pets or young children have access to the pond the auto feeder casing should ideally be fixed down to the adjacent decking/paving for stability and security.
