It might not be an issue for you. It is for me as my spring is on the side of a hill which has a corn field at the top. The neighbors use natural fertilizer with chemicals to keep the bugs down. So I have to be careful on when they spray. The belief is that these chemicals killed off my 55 when it first started up, just have no proof...much more likely than stray current. But the fertilizer causes organic phosphate issues for me. Replacing my RO
with a larger unit along with the GFO
has produced nice results. Only hair algae left in my tank is under direct lighting.
I really like my BRS dual reactor. Just need to get the correct fitting so I can hook it up to a pump all its own to make sure water is getting through it, where before it just didn't get enough if any flow at all.
With this larger sump setup, I have room for everything I could even want to add to my system. I already have the ATO and UV
sterilizer hooked up in the intake section, which will also have my skimmer and the pump for my dual reactor, which is hanging on the back of the stand. Then into my refugium and then just the return pump and heater in the return section. Still scratching my head on where the heater will be in all honesty, it was going to be in the intake, but I've used up most of the room in there. Only fuge and return remain. It'll probably end up in the fuge section.
