    Neptune Conductivity Probe - Weird Behavior, Sep 7, 2017
  1. MaddyP

    Has anyone experienced something like this? It seems the probe is slowly dropping to a point them spiking back to normal. Nothing odd going on with the tank, ATO is working as expected. These spikes don't correlate with any of the other equipment operating.

    So I got the t5 fixtures mounted and hooked up, but I must say I am very disappointed in them to this point. Every time they turn on they trip my gfci! It doesn't matter if I only turn one on or both on at the same time, it always trips. At first I thought it was the extension cord I was using because after I swapped it out they both came on without tripping. But then when they were programmed to come on this evening they popped again.

    I am definitely frustrated but I'm sure @Bulk Reef Supply will take care of me. I sent them an email just now concerning this. So I guess for now these things are coming down :(

    Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the issue?

    Hmmm...not sure. Maybe one of our #apexusers will be able to help.

    This is what I would probably recommend as well. Did you reset the apex? Sometimes that fixes issues. #apexusers

    Cool! Welcome to the #Apexusers! Lots of guys on here to help if you run into any questions.

    BTW, those chalices are beautiful! Which ones are they?
  12. I don't think my ATK is turning off the pmup when it should, Jun 28, 2017

    The green light on my ATK is staying on constantly (which I think means it's continually running the pmup). I have double checked my connections, and everything seems connected correctly. Can anyone help? #apexusers

    Also, it seems like my EB8 may be missing? This is what I see when I click on outlets:

  16. Is an ORP probe really all that useful?, Jun 27, 2017
  17. mdbannister

    I'm planning to replace the ORP probe on my Apex with an additional pH probe which will run my calcium reactor. I'm debating whether or not I should invest in an additional pm1 module so I can run the ORP probe...but I honestly haven't seen where ORP is really all that useful. I read @Randy Holmes-Farley's article on ORP, and from that it doesn't seem to be helpful as a reading. ...but in the spirit of debate, I thought I'd post the question here. How do you guys use ORP readings, or do you generally ignore them mostly? #apexusers #ghlusers

    Ok #apexusers, I'm setting up my first apex, and I figured instead of starting a new thread for each bump I hit, I'll just start a thread and update with questions as I run into them. Hoping you guys can help me as I go.

    I got the basic Fusion setup done (had to reset the Apex and upgrade firmware...that was fun).

    Now I'm in the actual setting up of the probes.

    My first question is how can I set my temp to measure in F instead of C? I assume it's currently in Celsius bc the measurement is at 20.6 degrees. The display unit says it's set to Fahrenheit, but that can't be right. :confused: I'm guessing I need to reset it in Fusion somehow?
