Yes that is correct.
hey Vinny at ghl. I have some questions as I want to do a GHL set up on the 300 I am building. I been talking to a few people who reef here in AZ and when I said I was NOT going to do another companies so called system( I am not gonna mention it or bad mouth them, it is just not my choice) they agreed with me and turned me onto GHL. They swear by your stuff. My conversation wit them left me somewhat confused , and not exactly sure what your system can and can't do. They were just telling me how they use your system and how they dose cal,alk and mag but I can't find any info on how your systems does that or what I need to buy. I still have this need to know all it. I want to get this stuff for the 300 display I am building and then a system for the frag co we plan to start.
SO wanting ghl sytem but have questions....I just signed up for your newletter.

GHL manufactures dosers that can dose CA, Mag, etc.



But I think your asking the following:

Tbe KH Director monitors alkalinity, and can adjust your current dosing schedule for alkalinity based on alkalinity levels. For example before the ION I was using tke KH Director to adjust another doser that was dosing 3 parts Aquaforest.

Fast forward been running the ION since Janauary. I use the ION now to adjust my Calcium and Magnesium and Nitrate and the KH adjust now just alkalinity. I have a 4 head additional doser which 3 dosing pumps are controlled by the ION and 1 dosing pump head the KH Director.

You can purchase GHL products as standalone or the requirement to be connected to the ProfiLux controller.

I assume your going to want to control and monitor everything through the controller so you will need a ProfiLux Controller, after that a bunch of other questions about outlets, sensors and so forth PM me if you have specifics and will be happy to help :)

Here their website which list all their products.

Hello @1ocean ,

Send me an email with a list of what you're looking to monitor and control. I can put together a parts list for you and explain how everything ties into the system. :)

Hi Vinny,
I am so glad you are able to be a resource for me...there are just to many people I spoke to or meet in person who have their own idea on how to use you products and it makes me a little worried if they telling me the real facts....
My email is [email protected] once you email me I will give you my cell...
A advanced Thank you for your help for planning and helping me put together a GHL system for the 300 new build.
Just so you know my idea is to get KH and ION directors and what ever else I need.
Looking forward to your help, so that I can then share what I learn from you to my future clients so that they can purchase GHL also !!!!
