yeah im slightly uspet Carey, i was thinking of buying a 150 gpd upgrade somewhere else, as i figured it would still work, but knowing my luck it would be different. i really need to contact BRS because i replaced the pressure gauge about a month ago because it was leaking and as is my luck, this one sprung a leak as well. im burning through di resin because i leave it running, then the ASO builds up pressure to shut off, and it leaks. so it slowly burns up my di resin. i bought the float valve to stop that exact thing, and it only makes it worse.

Snipe, i technically cant burn boxes here but i do anyways. lol i just do it in moderation as to not cause any alarms

I had a horrible problem when using the ato setup on my ro/di, it would spray water everywhere so I just dont use it. I've had minimal flooding but mine is outside on my covered back porch so the excess water just flows down and out the wall line. lol

But yeah, I would go broke on di resin if I had your situation. lol I just went to my fave lfs to day looking for di resin as i am pushing out 1 tds after the di right now. not horrible but still not optimal.

yeah mines in the basement...it has concrete flooring so the mess isnt bad but still its blowing my water bill through the roof. as for the di resin, im at about 25% left on what i have and my 40g tub is full. so i should have enough to get me through till BRS gets the 150gpd upgrade back in stock. my lfs has the BRS bags of di resin but i figured its not worth the extra price (prob double what brs charges)

controller is finally in. all the basics are setup, outlets are labelled and running, the PC dashboard is setup. got a couple of failsafes established. cant seem to get the email notifications. I absolutely LOVE this unit and cant wait to see it shine when i get it dialed in and get some add-ons, but ill be the first to admit that this is a pretty daunting install. i dont know if it was just my own personal oversight, but it feels as though Neptune doesnt quite give much hint that this is a fairly involved setup. the physical aspect of installing the equipment, wasnt bad. the tuning/customizing/ software end of it though is rough. all i really need to do is get a longer ethernet cord and a magnetic probe holder. other than that its done. im too tired and half-witted right now to upload pics. ill try to get pics up later but i cant promise anything because my other WP40 is coming in and possibly my leds.

That complexity was one of the reasons I went with the reefkeeper instead of the apex. I'm a simple girl and I like to keep it all pretty simple when I can. lol

cant wait to see what else comes in the mail later, so exciting.
Do you happen to know where I can download programs for the radion, that users or exotech themselves made? I know they are out there but I dont see any links on ecotech website.
