Ever consider dosing vodka?

I had a long time ago and didn't get past a week of doing it. It isn't necessary on the system though. This is a very simple problem, skimmer stopped skimming again + increased feeding + GFO caking up and being close to needing replaced anyway + ATS not as established as the replaced rednecked unit.

Quick unrelated update. I've been without power for almost 4 hours. Vortech still going strong in power saver off the battery backup. Level of content is high through significant boredom.

And now that the power is back, it lasted the whole time.

Yes, quite pleased. Two power outages last week. Pump ran the whole time.

Nice to have that little piece of security to hold things together when trouble strikes
