I love my 2 mp10s keeps my water moving really nice..... Also those skimmers r big but I don't think you will have a problem with keeping a good foam head with either of them..... You have a real nice bio load in there I don't see is having any issue. Just keep in mind you have to give what ever one you get a good week to brake in before it will really start to pull all the good stuff out

You will need a 12V DC transformer - basically a cell phone type charger rated between 9-12V.

I still never even hooked mine up, because I decided, since everything else is very nice, that I didn't want a hoakey looking set-up and figured I'd go with the JBJ ATO for now and use this DIY for something else useful.

Can you run that tunze pump dry? That's one nice thing about the aqualifter. It's basically an air pump so if it goes dry it don't damage.

No you can't run it dry but my top off is supplied direct with a float valve off my rodi so it won't go empty

I was leaning towards the BM honestly.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I swore that the Tunze pump had an auto-shutoff that if it wasn't submerged to a certain point it would shut itself down. Could just be wishful thinking though.

It dose but I don't think I would trust that for very long I would rather be safe with my top off being supplied from my rodi automatically so I don't have to worry about it

How can you hook up a float switch to the RO unit? I can't figure out how to electronically shut my faucet off?
