Because everything in my tank is in harmony. There is no reason to adjust the lighting or powerhead schedule. There is always fine tuning that can be done, but if I fiddle with it every day it would only create chaos.
But with that said, the reeflink makes everything MUCH more easy to use. The USB cord and borrowing a laptop to set a schedule to the radions was awful.

I would look into an auto top off. It will keep your salinity constant and you not have to top off manually everyday.

That's a great suggestion too! I'm assuming you use an RODI water maker as well

ATO are great pieces of equipment as well. I run a JBJ with a tom's aqua lifter on my system.
In terms of making your own ro/di, that is up to you. You should want to use ro/di in your system to control what is going in. If you can buy it from your LFS you might want to do it that way, though it is always cheaper in the end and offers more control to ensure 0 TDS is entering your system if you do it yourself.
