  1. I'll grab this one for 20 too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'll grab this for 20.....I forgot about these yesterday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Cool, sent you a pm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I'm interested depending on where you're located. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I use fritz blue box and just tested the batch I mixed over the weekend at 8.0 dKH. That's usually what I see. I bought from seahorse a couple of weeks ago. Maybe you got low batch? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I'll flag this thread to come back to when I need some programming. But I'm sure I could pimp out my programming a bit more on existing items! For my swabbie, I just copied your homework and never looked back! Keep it coming! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What is your dosing schedule looking like now? How often and how much at each interval for Ca and Alk? I test at the same time every few days and feel like it's rock solid, but really have no clue as to what the daily variation is. You're making me think it's not that stable after all! But I dose alk every hour for about 15 hours during the lights off period. Surely that does something?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Laugh all you want but it'll always be 4 years old to me since that's when I forked out 500 for it and I'll be using this old technology until the wheels fall off! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Any idea why they didn't support Apex Classic with these? Is it just a sales stunt or does the classic not have some functionality that's needed? I mean, come on, my Apex is only 4 years old! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Don't use all the reagent up tonight! It's pretty compact, I thought it would be larger. So how does it clean itself after each test, does it flush with some tank water to the waste vessel? Does it have a test vial like a Hanna? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That was a much needed improvement! I mistakenly plugged in a third doser to automate another liquid supplement into a standard eb8 outlet and despite Apex only set to run it 3 minutes, the doser kept running and dumped 450 ml of KZ Pohls xtra into my tank! It didn't harm anything but it was about $50 worth of supplement! I just added a splitter to the outlet and plugged in a spare air pump that gets the wattage up enough to trigger the relay in the outlet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Well sounds like if I run out of Apex outlets I can always just go this route. Those energy bars are expensive! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was going to add a piece of soft silicon tubing to my skimmer cup drain port with a cap or valve on the end. That way I can drain it by just putting the end of the silicone tube in a bucket, open the valve, drain it, then close the valve. May get clogged over time, but no big deal. I'm still considering just having an open drain with an airlock but worried about skimmer going crazy and overflowing the bucket. We'll see. That's where the skimmate locker is king.

  14. Cool, thanks. I'll just copy and paste that in and adjust as needed. Does it have to be plugged into one of the low wattage eb8 outlets? Mine only has 2 of these and my dosing pumps are plugged into them. If they are plugged into the standard outlets they'll keep running after the time period ends since the watt draw is so low. I can bypass this issue by adding another load to the outlet if need be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I will. I've got one outlet left on the eb8 for it! Sure, pass along any programming. Haven't even thought the far. Thanks.
