I haven't found it, but I think it sends out notifications based on the polling interval for that specific device. So some can be instantaneous (pH, temperature, salinity, etc.) and some take longer.

You cannot change the notification interval. When an alarm is first triggered, you receive the first notification right away. If the condition has not been cleared, you will receive a follow-up notification every 60 minutes.

If you have any low-priority alarms where you don't want hourly notifications, you can use a virtual output to create a "one-time" alert, which will also allow more critical issues to send alarms since the Apex is limited to only sending notifications for a single alarm condition at a time. See my Apex Alarms tutorials for more details and example programming:

It's most likely the range setting on your probes. Just look at what the alerts are it is sending you and then go into those probes and raise or lower the alarm settings.

Temp is a likely culprit. My temp runs 79.2 to 79.7. So I go into the temp probe and unchecked recommended values, then click on the advanced tab right beside that. Then I have "When outside range" selected and minimum 78 and maximum 81.

That gives you some flex and still warns you in plenty of time. Check settings like that on the probes that are sending the warnings.
