I bought an analog timer from home depot on black friday for $5 but it's 2 prong, not 3.
As far as my circulation pumps go, I have two in my tank right now. 1 on each side of the tank. They are both on, facing eachother for the most part, 24x7. Should I time these? If so, let me know.
I have 48'' T5HO 4 bulb system with LED
moonlights. 2 bulbs are white, 2 bulbs are actnic. I can not use the analog timer because it's prong outlet (1 on each side of the timer for a total of two plugs) is 2 prongs, not 3. Two out of Three power cords are 3 prong. I bought a power strip, 4 timed & 4 constant outlets. It did not say on the box or packaging if the 4 times are seperate or the same time. I tried to follow the directions (electronic settings) to set each timer(1-4) but it either doesn't work or I didn't do it right. What do you guys use for your timers? How long should the above bulbs be on for? Thanks. Currently I am doing it manually. Basically around 10am I turn the white on and around 10pm I turn the actnics on (with our without the daylight too) and then at night around 1am i turn all that off and turn on the moonlights just for my viewing. Even if I can find something online, I need 3 timed items. ( or 5 if I have to do the circulation pumps)
The water in my room evaporates rather quickly. For ex. I manually topped off my tank w/ r.o. water on Saturday and about 1 inche is missing from the tank already. I am not familiar with ATO's but I do not have a sump. I need some sort of a HOB
ATO machine. I saw on autotopoff.com they have a set up for about $41 but I am not sure if it includes everything I need. What would I have to do/buy/put together to have a HOB
auto top off so I do not have to make/top off water all the time.
Sorry for the long read, These 2 items ( timer & ATO) I would like to get as soon as possible. Thanks for taking the time and I look forward to helpful responses!
