    Double Float Switch Example

    I thought I would share my double float switch setup. I have two float switches wired in series to a common inlet. The primary float switch sits in the water. When water evaporates, the buoy sinks, and it triggers the ATO. This is normal operation. The secondary float switch sits above the...

    Help with Reef-pi light profile modes

    Hi all, Has anyone some good grasp on the reef-pi light settings? I just added a kessil a160 to my robotank (thanks for the support @robsworld78!) and for now I am running the "diurnal" profile.

    How to install reef-pi

    Hi, over the last couple years I've been using a script I made up to install reef-pi as there's quite a few steps and easy to miss 1wire, I2C or whatever. In 95% of the cases it worked great and made things easy for people but it wasn't perfect which is why I never shared it directly. A couple...

    Reef-pi + Arduino

    Hi all, I am in the process of crashing my first Aquarium controller. I have ordered a few parts and have a few Arduino laying around too. Reef-Pi is my preferred route although I am more experienced with the Arduinos and the C programming than Python. I have a case for the pi4b which has a...

    Timers on Reef-pi

    Hey Everyone, How Does Reef Pi's timers react to power failures? I have set my co2 up with the following timer. If I lose power before a state change, and regain it after, Will the state change be ignored? For example, if the power turns off at 11:55, then comes back at 12:05, will the co2...

    Ph Probe

    Hey everyone, I am working on a diy ph-prob for a reef-pi unit. According to the online guide I need a barrel adaptor and some kind of ph-circuit. By the looks of it, this has both built in, but I have never made one of these before. Can someone tell me if this will connect to my Raspberry-pi...

    Robo-Tank pH circuit accuracy

    Has anyone done comparisons between the Robo-Tank pH circuit and other measuring methods? It seems likely that it would depend on the probe being used, but I'm curious if anyone has tested it or just has some general observations to share. Maybe @robsworld78 would be willing to share some...

    Matt's Reef-Pi build thread

    I set up my 1st intended reef tank in November of '18. I decided to go with a 150 gallon because water parameters are supposed to be more stable and I love fish too so I could have a wider selection with a 5' tank. I realized shortly after setting up this tank that my attempt at a budget build...
