Hey does that system monitor topoff water? or just saltwater? pure water isnt supposed to conduct
It has the typical very explicit well written instructions that come with most things now.
In other words it says it works with freshwater and saltwater and that's it.
I could try in in a glass of RODI if you really want to know.
Simple system. Both sensors off run pump until both sensors closed. In between it lights some lights.

I put this on my tank thread, which has nothing to do with tanks so I will also put it here.
Good Morning people.
This morning I felt really energized, probably because I only had one Grand Marnier last night before bed.
So I figured I would do more exercise this morning. I felt like going to the beach, down and up those 165 steps but I also wanted to bike ride. Actually, like most people I hate to exercise. But my wife gets after me about staying in shape.
No, not the shape I am in, more like Brad Pitts shape but although they sell live pigs near here, I haven't seen any of them flying yet.

So I get on my bicycle and head to the beach. The beach isn't far but it's up hill both ways. :rolleyes:

It must have been early because I didn't see anyone walking dogs or going to work. Then I remembered it's Sunday.
I get to the beach door. Yes we lock our beach so no one steals it. I left the bike there and stared at the steps and the beautiful ocean at the bottom, below the clouds. ;Meh

I start walking down the stairs and this time I don't count them as I normally do just to pass the time and see if I can still count. I pass a few deer and rabbits which I always say good morning to. I don't know if they are the same deer all the time as they don't seem to recognize me and probably just think "Oh great, here comes that bald Geezer messing up the serineness.

There is huge vegetation on both sides of the stairs which are elevated above the cliff.
I was thinking today, who was the guy who had to cut through this thick stuff to mark out where to put these stairs and did he have tick insurance. You can't even get down this cliff without having mountain climbing gear because it is so steep that if you step away from the stairs, the mountain starts to fall down into the sea. ;Woot

I get to the bottom and sit on a bench there. They should put one of those CPR things there for Geezers like me but I stay a while and look out at the Sound searching for sharks.
Last week they saw a huge fin sticking out of the water. I don't know if it was a fin connected to a shark or a Catalina gobi but I saw video's of it. I used to SCUBA dive here and never saw anything.

Walking up was hard, I think because I had so many ticks on me they were weighing me down. ;Shifty
I had to stop a few times, to say good bye to the deer and rabbits but also t catch my breath that I lost 30 years ago.

I got to the top and found my bicycle. In my old neighborhood I just would have found a note thanking me for the bike.
I got on the bike and headed home, uphill again.

But I didn't go home, I don't know why but I rode past my house at an unbelievable rate, OK, it wasn't that fast but there was a young Lady running with one of those running carriages pushing a baby and I didn't want her to think she was in better shape than I was in, but she was. Even the baby was. :rolleyes:

I kept going, farther and farther all the way (about a mile, OK 3/4s of a mile) to where I couldn't go any more without getting flattened by a tractor trailer. I felt like Bruce Jenner. Well, not "Exactly". I am still a man and will remain that way. Mostly because I don't know what dress size I am. ;)

Then I came back home, passing the baby again who was shaking his fists at me (it could have been a pacifier) and I am ready to go out for breakfast.

I still can't get in more than a third of these stairs, you need to be in a hot air balloon for that.

How are you dealing with healthcare in retirement, medicare, Obamacare, other?

Awww! That has to be amazing. I want to rehab opossums— they’re my favorite animal & I love them so much I could cry.
I so those every once in a while. I’ll send pics next time

How are you dealing with healthcare in retirement, medicare, Obamacare, other?
Healthcare is easy. Don't go to college. If I went to college I would have been an electrician engineer making half the money for twice the hours and I would have never been able to retire. I became an electrician which at the time, (Not now), I didn't have to go to college. (unfortunately you do now)

I had an exact retirement date and a great pension with free health care for the rest of my life and after taking a cut, my wife is covered also. I normally got home from work at about 3:30. Many people with office jobs come home 8 or 9:00pm which wouldn't work for me.

(I am 70 and most of my friends with office jobs are still working) I know that a lot of people love their jobs so that doesn't bother them at all and that is a great thing. To me, a job was something I had to do so I could retire even though I didn't hate my Job, especially when I built the NY Playboy Club, Penthouse Magazine, lit up the top of the Empire State Building and worked quite a few Victoria Secret photo shows in Manhattan. I never found out their secret. ;Smuggrin

I also know that a very large percentage of people don't want to retire as they don't have enough interests to take up the time. I think that is unfortunate, but it is what it is.

Medicare is free and so is my supplemental insurance. I also have free dentists but my wife doesn't like the free dental, she feels they give you wooden fillings so we pay for dentists.


I was in the Army so I can go to college for free and I have taken courses in anything I find interesting all my life (not something a college thinks I should take) (The Army also gives me free health care if I need it) My Union will also send me to college if I wanted to go. It seems everyone wants to send me to college, maybe they think I am stopid and can't spell ;Wacky

I am a compulsive reader and love to learn, but only things I am interested in, which is almost everything. ;Joyful

Now at my age I am trying to forget things. :p
I needed a job where I could start early, have insurance and get home early because I have too many interests and hobbies, besides fish and trying to guess the phone numbers of Supermodels. :p

When you are young, you can plan your life any way you want. Unfortunately we don't realize at the time that we will be old longer than we are young, if we are lucky anyway. I am trying to live my life to the fullest now and I think I am. ;)

Obamacare is just a joke and much too expensive, even more than Purple tangs.

My wife has MS and she gives herself a shot every day to slow down the progression as there is no cure. Those shots are about $22,000.00 every 6 months. They are covered by my insurance, thank God as who, besides Nancy Peolsi could afford that?

Just before I retired 11 years ago my Union gave us a course on retireing. No, really!
The orator asked "Whats your biggest fear in retiring?"

Then she collected the papers and asked, "Whose paper is this?" It was mine. She said that out of the fifty people there, I was the only one that should retire.

I answered that "My biggest fear was that I wouldn't live long enough to do all the things I was planning to do." And I am still trying. :)

This was on top of this lighthouse in the Middle of the Long Island Sound, when my wife could still get up there.
Most of my life now is trying to get her happy in spite her affliction which is the hardest thing I have ever done.

A fella at work keeps raccoons and skunks, the vet has removed the stink glands, is it the same with possums?
FYI yuk!!!!
There are scent glands and there is scent. The musk and smell from the Urine and body never go away but all in all they don’t smell bad. Not like my pet marbled red fox.
