    Fauna Marin Doser

    Looks it’s GHL’s Fauna Marin’s new Dosing Pump. Yes this looks to be just rebranded, the original being the robust GHL Standalone Doser. What this really achieves, we’re not sure. GHL’s presence across the globe is arguably larger, but we suppose this will allow Fauna Marin to better package these dosers with their salts.

    There’s nothing wrong with rebranded products, and in this case we’re appreciative of the fact that Fauna is being forthright on the manufacturer of their product. It is after all, a solid product. ¬†However, I find it odd how GHL/FM will be handling warranty issues if parts between the dosers are interchanged.

    “Even if the products were made from the same manufacturer these products are not interchangeable or compatible! In particular this means: Spare parts or accessories can’t be used for the other brand, we don’t give support or accept warranties if items of several brands have been mixed!”

    Are the dosing pumps different? Potentially, but the roller heads are the same Thomas SR peristaltics that we see everywhere. If they are truly different, we’d like to know in what way. If not, what gives?

      I think maybe this has to do with the limited GHL distribution. They see the larger market. Warranty support will be handled at the distributor level, so it makes sense that they would only want to deal with the products they distribute….even if they are made by the same manufacturer and rebranded.
