    ** FLSharkvictim / Custom Rimless SCA 150 Build ***, Apr 6, 2019

    Picked up this off ebay last night for my #apex Pnup ATO pump so it does not move around in my #Synergy 10 gallon ATO container.
    Then all I need to do is add a 3rd sensors and use it as my low sensor in my ATO container, and ones it hits that low sensor, my RODI will kick on and I will also, have a high sensor in the ATO to tell the RODI TO kick off.

    ** New Update **

    Instead of adding another Vectra M1, I went with a #APEXCOR20 for another 2nd return pump since I can integrate it into my #Apex Controller and have the option to Control it from anywhere in the world and also the pump will send me a notification if there was ever a power outage, pump gets clogged somehow, etc etc!

    That's why I might end up getting rid of my #Vectra M1 and just go with two #COR20's.
    Make sure you stay connected with me since I will be starting my plumbing job my drains and returns! I just need to move my SCA Rimless 150 to the correct spot, and it will be time to start hard plumbing my drains 1st and then my returns next.

    More plumbing pictures coming soon

    I just got in my @Synergy Reef Systems CL-44 sump with a Matching 10 gallon ATO Reservoir, so I don't run into any salt creep.
    You never want your RODI system constantly turning on and off, so that's why I decided to go with one of Synergy 10 ATO container.
    I have a #Apex High and Low sensors, so ones my ATO gets to the 1gallon mark, my RODI will automatically kick on until it reached the High Sensors which kicks my RODI off..

    Have a new Update!

    I worked a little on my control panels and placing everything where I want it and a course a little wire management!

    Here is a pic of my #Apex Control Panel

    ** Saturday Update on my @MarineDepot control panels **

    First, I have to paint my cabinet area white today and I am going to be planning on finishing up the two @MarineDepot panels that I sourced. They are not cheap but they are worth every single penny. You can feel free to try to source the material elsewhere but in the end, you will pay more than what I PAID for these at MD panels.

    MD PANEL1 Dexlue Version for all of my #Apex Gear: 2 FMM Mods / #WXM mod to control my MP40QWD's and my #Avast Marine break outbox





    2Nd MD panel is for all of my pumps, skimmer controller and all of my power supplies.
    I will most likely be buying a 2nd Neptune 832bar and mount that where the Kill-A-Watt power supply is located.

    @Sandbox - Very nice build thread mate!!
    How do you like that ATO system you bought, since it's fairly new?
    I went with the ATK Kit since everything will be integrated w/ #Apex.
    Any new updates on which sump you went with?

    I picked up @ my LFS Grand opening, just 1 - #Apex 1 '' Flow Sensor that will be installed on my return pump so I can keep track of how much flow I have running through my returns!

    Got my #apex programmed and mounted today. Second slide is my water change station. 90 gallons of water ready to go. 30 RO, 30 salt, and 30 ATO. not as neat as I want it, but it’s functional. Cycle is going well. Ammonia is just about zero, now just waiting on nitrites to fall. #reef #sca50cube #spstank

    @lbacha - Picked up my new Auto Top Off kit for my new build!! Instead of going with an Avast ATO set up, I Got the #Apex ATK module so everything will be fully integrated.
    I just need one more #Apex module to control my #EcoTechMarine #MP40QWD's, which is there WXM module. Next, I will be adding another MD Panel for all of my EcoTech Marine Controllers, Tunze Controllers, Reef Octo Controller, and a few others!
