Hey all!

Let me preface by saying that I do not own or even seen in person any of the currently available testing/dosing systems. I have been keeping my eye on all of them to see what everyone thinks and which performs the best so that I know which one I am going to splurge on when the time comes

I am just curious why people have not been talking about the CoralVue Xepta more? I know it is not out yet, so we don’t know the cons, but the pros seem to be pretty great:

-probes instead or reagents to keep the annual costs lower (and I would think probes would be more accurate but I could definitely be wrong)
-has the option to get the integrated AutoBalance system (not sure if other ones have that feature or if you have to program it yourself)
-since it is probe based, I would think it would be completely silent except for the AutoBalance dosing unit
-not 100% sure on this one buttttt - it looks like a standalone unit, which would be beneficial for people, like me, who do not have a controller yet (I would love to get a Trident/Apex or a GHL/Ion Director, but I don’t know if FASFA would be happy with a $1300+ BRS charge - I know it does not work that way :D)
-they also leaked a nitrate probe in a video which, I think, would be the first of its kind


I am in no way here to create an argument thread or bash on any systems out there (I would personally love to have any of them). Having no hands-on experience with any of these systems, I cannot form judgements besides from what is posted on R2R threads. I would just like to hear people’s opinions about these systems and what makes some more popular than others. Things like brand name, customer service support, reliability, etc.

It’s actually a 2 piece system. An on called the auto balance and another called the abex. You would need both to do all the test. Biggest pro for the system would be auto dosing included with it. Also it’s a Spanish company that coral vue is bringing to the us

I think GHL ion director overshadowed it a bit.
Not sure how good coral vue device will be given its their first entry to market.
While GHL been there for a while and proved solid devices so far. Also GHL have a full line up from controller to dosers to testers. Investing there is better in my openion...

I email Spain facility, took forever to get response. And they never gave me straight answers, to questions. So gonna go with GHL system, will do more. Bummer

CoralVue link to the Xepta products is a dead link. I wonder if they've given up on it?

Was wondering why it was gone myself. I noticed it when I was responding to this thread I started.

They're still trying to find out what's wrong with the clock of my unit. It's not the app, they suspect it may be a problem with the battery of the clock. This clock is used to schedule the dosing. I didn't notice any problem until now because I have it dosing once after each test.
