    Let's do this again...APEX

    So the last time I bought the apex few years back didn't even open the box and sold the unit.

    This time around going all the way with it to control lights, ecotech mp 60/40 (got the WXM module for this), skimmer pump, return pump, leak detection and later on probably auto top off, and another PH probe for the calcium reactor. Also getting another eb8 to have more outlets available.

    Thanks Urban Aquatics for the great deal on the Apex and additional modules. Always enjoy giving my business to LFS.

    Let's do this again...APEX

    I'm just so impressed by the new apex 2016. It took me about 20 minutes so set up some basic programming and alarms.

    The one I fear the most-after power is restored skimmer is overflowing due to higher water level in sump. Problem solved now with some basic commands. Skimmer pump stays off for 15 minutes after power is restored so the sump water level stabilizes.

    Got to get the ORP up-it's very low. Would like it in 300 range. I'm going to bring in some fresh air from outside since tank is very close to the outside walls.

    Still need to set up MP pumps.

    And showing energy consumption is an awesome feature. My skimmer and return pump consumes 137 watts...pretty darn good.
