I was thinking along the same lines, I just feel it's going to be very inaccurate. The water source TDS, DI capacity, etc. are variable. Without a stable source to track it makes any sort of accuracy near impossible. I understand you're trying to determine resin/filter longevity based on TDS readings, but it is going to be different every time.

I started to work on this right after you posted the idea because I think it's a great one. So far it looks like this



It is still very crude looking, I'll make sure it looks good before releasing, I need to know what other things need to be tracked. So you'll enter in the date you changed said equipment, enter in the number of days until you want to change it again and the "Change On" column does the math for you. The "Days Left" column is self explanatory, right now I have it set to highlight yellow when there are 10 days or less to change equipment, and if it is due or past due for change it highlights red with the word change in the middle. I'm also going to try and implement a pop up warning for items that are due, you'll get the pop up when you open the sheet.

Tracked so far
RO Membrane
RO Filters
DI Resin

MH Bulbs
T5/PC Bulbs(LED's don't need replacing thus they are not listed)

Carbon
GFO

I'm running blank after that. Help me out guys, what else could/should be tracked? What do you think about it?

Thanks Sean.
Sent out to you, you may have the tracking portion incomplete on your copy, can't remember if I saved it or not before sending. I should have the tracking done soon and can get you the completed copy.

What about a space for Equipment/Aquarium where you can enter a install date and it tracks the age of your Equipment/Aquarium?

Update!! Parts and Equipment Tracker added in

Credit goes to theshiver for this idea. Thank you sharing your thoughts shiver, I'm really happy with the addition of this.

Screen Shot of Trackers


For parts tracking you'll enter the date you changed said equipment and in how many days you would like to change it again, the sheet does the math for you and calculates the next change date, as well as counts down the days for you. When the countdown has reached 10 or less days it will highlight yellow, when it has reached 0 you will get the change notification.

For equipment tracking you'll enter the date you put said equipment on your tank, the sheet will do the math for you and display how long that equipment has been online.

I hope you guys find this tool useful, if you'd like the updated copy let me know.Thanks again shiver for the great idea.

-Sean

Can I just give you a blanket, "I'd' like any updated versions in the future"? I am sure it will only get better, so that would be great. Thanks for your efforts! lcarlson41@gmail.com

Thanks!
Chris

Has there been any thought into putting this up on a hosting site such as google for version control and ease of updating the thousands of people who have asked for a copy when a new update has been added?

ALso, I PM'd you to get a copy

Sent to all of you.

@TACoraled - Yes I have though about uploading it, however, I'm pretty sure I would not receive much feedback and the project would go stale. After I feel there really is not much more to add I'm sure I'll upload and for everyone. In the meantime I think I'm going to go clean up my email contact list and send out new versions to everyone that has gotten it so far.

-Sean

Thumbs up

Sean,
Got version 2 and it just what I needed. Your extra programming is great.

I'd like to get a copy of the newest version also, with the added tracking sheet.

You could also add a sheet for tracking livestock and corals. I'll send you a copy of the one I use.

Thanks again and keep at it. This is a great tool!

OK one more thought. What if you add a spot where we enter our test results, carbon, mag.,tank volume, etc. so it tells us how much to dose.

A livestock tracker is a great idea too! I'll get on it as soon as I can. I said a few posts back, I'm going to make the effort to clean up my email contacts(separate personal from reef central folks) and auto update people as I create new things.

There is a calculator sheet...it has links to volume calculators, supplement calculator, etc. I thought about creating my own but I thought his sheets were great and just decided to link you guys to it.
