I really love my ER80 and I own an RS100. So i have two sedra3500 pumps from ER. Both are loud. You will want to get suction cups to place under the pump or a silicon pad. You can also build an air...

Wow, that's an intense diagram. It took me a while to follow the lines and really see what the logic was but now I get it. They are just using two membranes, one specifically to store the pressurized...

jdieck,

What kind of fluid bed filter do you have? Really the key to any denitrator is only large surface area and slow flow rate that creates anaerobic zones. A fluid denitrator would work fine actually if...

As others have mentioned, this is definitely a problem with all AC pumps. Propeller pumps should not be cycled on any controller that completely turns them on and off on a regular basis. Look into...

Depends a bit on on how much temp differential you expect between the room temp in the aquarium. All I can really do is give you my experience. My 250W heater is set at 80 degrees on my 50 gallon...

I have a frankEnBAY unit. Started out as a Water General and now I've pretty much added components from all of the RC vendors. It has a spectrapure membrane in it which is nice. It gets over 99%...

Aqua controller jr

Hello all,
I just received an AC jr for xmas but unfortunately it did not come with the serial port. Is it worth returning the unit to get the serial port or is it not really needed. I like the idea...

Hmm, well that could be the culprit. Why did you add if I may ask? It's really probably not necessary for a reef tank. I would now just set the skimmer to it's lowest setting and just keep dumping...

Hmm that's strange. It does not sound like it is in too deep of water at 9 inches. My skimmer was doing the same thing recently because I used two part underwater epoxy to mount some frags. That...

I know this is going to sound ridiculous but it's worth a shot. Check to see wether ER might have put the "open" and "closed" stickers backwards. That would explain why it would immediately flood...

No prob. Every once in a while I will pour hot DI water into the airline of my skimmer to break up the salt deposits. Works well and will buy you some extra time between servicing it.

The only thing I don't like about my new RS80 is having to clean the cup twice a day. Nasty foam.

I have both an RS100 and an RS80. I can't believe how much better my RS80 is working on my tank than the 100 ever did. I would get the RS80 for your 55. I have a 40 with a 20 sump.
