Ok so this is the plan I think. SL1 module with Ph probe upgrade. A Digital Aquatics float switch. A MiniJet 606 pump.
Run the float switch to the SL1 for ATO with Kalk
. Program the PH probe to shut off the ATO if PH raises beyond 8.3 for fail safe overflow if float sticks. I usually top off about 1 gal
every other day depending on conditions. A 10 gal
resevour should get me 7-9 days with ease I think. If the float sticks PH should raise with set up beyond 8.3 before my sump would overflow tripping the PH probe to override the float switch. Correct?
Also If I decide not to dose Kalk
the probe could be set to overide in the event the PH drops below determined level accomplishing the same thing. Correct?
