Just change the offset to 8hours and keep repeat 24 hours

DosingPumpRepeat(Box1_Port6,480,1440,660);

Try this

if (hour() ==8 && minute() == 00) { // At 8:00 am
ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat(Box1_Port6,0,0,660); // Dose Vodka for 11 minutes (660 seconds).
}

Ahh so the offset is from midnight, 00? Mudcat1 will try yours as well

How does the vinegar dosing part look? Only dose during lights on

Mudcat's wont work. It will only work the first minute. The vinegar one looked fine.

The doser did not turn on today? Any thoughts?
Vinegar dosing relay is the last blue graph

Code: Select all
///Code to make Vinegar Dosing Work 4 mins
  ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat(Box1_Port8,0,60,240);
///Do not turn on Vinegar if lights are off
  if (hour()<=9 || hour()>21) {
    ReefAngel.Relay.Off(Box1_Port8);
  }

It turned on at Noon?

Instead of this code:

ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat(Box1_Port8,0,60,240);

Should it be this code:

ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat(Box1_Port8,540,60,240);

Turn on at 9AM?

What is the math on DosingPumpRepeat? Thought the reset was at midnight (00)?

You will have to watch the dosing pump to see if it starts and runs at the desired time. I was told that if the relay is not running for at least 5 minutes it may not show up in the charts on the portal. At least that is what I have encountered when I run my dosing pumps for 140 seconds. Sometimes they show up in the charts sometimes they don't.

The first arg is the port, second is the offset from midnight. 3rd is runtime and last is the repeat time. As mudcat said the portal only gets updates every 5 minutes starting at last reboot. Sometimes that might capture your dosing pump, sometimes not.
