That is true, but most manufacturers list the ratios both by volume and by weight. I couldn't say why some manufacturers want you to mix by weight, but if it's what you want and you want the results they promise, it's best to do it how they say.

Personally- I only use the pumps for pumping epoxy into a cup on the scale. There is much less opportunity for error, and you can mix smaller amounts. You measure out your resin, zero your scale, and measure out your hardener. It can be messier, and I've never bought epoxy in a 5-gallon pail before, so I'll see how that goes with this project.
