Ok I got bought a used reef keeper lite controller I think I got it all figured out. I ordered float switch kits from brs and am buying a used module from another reef club member
I currently have everything hooked to the two power strips. When I get the float switches hooked up I can do away with my current ato system and I will have one free plug on one of the power strips lol.
Whenever I get this 10gallon sump hooked up I need 2 plugs :-(
I'm thinking of buying a splitter and putting both circulation pumps on one plug. I am not going to use the wavemaker function cause my hydor pump is old and makes clunking sounds when starting up and the other one is a cheap oceanic 250 nano and it makes clunking sounds too and I'm afraid they both won't be able to handle it
I really like the controller I wish I would have gotten one sooner. It does a awesome job at keeping my temp the same before it would fluctuate a few degrees, now it turns heater on at 77.9 and off at 78.1
Also removed all the clutter of my other power strips and the need for the 2 dial timers for my light that I was always accidentally hitting tabs in and would find out at 2am when the light woke me up.
Standby feature is nice too, no more unplugging everything to do water changes
