We are talking about what Skimz calls  DLC: Dosing Liquid Containers.

This one in the picture is divided in four different containers. Every single container can be easily recognized by a color and a label of the same color. Therefore we have the 3 essential products of the Balling method: calcium, magnesium and alkalinity, and on the side we have also a low chlorides salt.

The dispenser is completely made out of  acrylic, the shape is rectangular in order to exploit all the available space. The approximated sizes are 23x15x30 cm, and can hold up to 6 litres of solutions.

The multidispenser is available in two different versions, with 3  or 4 containers. At CIPS we have seen and experienced at first hand the 4 container version, called  DLC4, but it is available also DLC3, absolutely the same but with one less box. Consequently it gets three “2-litres-containers” instead of four “1,5-litres-containers” like the DLC4 shown in the picture.

As we said, every container has a coloured tube of the same color of the label which is on the front. This is to simplify the connections. Moreover the tubes are sold in three different sizes, with length of 2,4 and 8 metres.

The distinctive top sealing system, as you can see in the picture, allows to seal its content using a sliding closure. Easy and practical.

Prices of multidispenser Skimz DLC3 e DLC4

The price looks very competitive according to the Singaporean manufacturer, as his usual, since we are talking about 59 USD for the 4-containers version and 56 USD for the 3-containers one.

Unfortunately, at present, the brand Skimz is not  imported in Italy, and we hope this gap will be filled soon.
