Gotta love it when you wake up in the middle of the night and you realize you left the RODI running in the basement. Float valve will be installed this weekend lol...
I am absolutely paranoid about that! My fish room is right next to my office, so I usually run the RO/DI when I'm working. I set my phone with an alarm that makes this horrible duck quacking sound. It's really embarrassing to be in a conference call staff meeting when the duck alarm starts quacking...not that it's ever happened to me! "What's that awful duck noise?" Ummm, I have no idea! ;Hilarious

Lol! I use the same alarm! Unfortunately I have blown right through a few duck alarms and still ended up with a 5 towel cleanup! ;Facepalm

I am hoping to put together a mixing station soon.

That's hilarious! It's a great reminder...when you remember to set the duck alarm. I've had a few of those 5 towel cleanups, too! I'm also paranoid that I'm going to be 30 miles away when the duck starts quacking...I'll really be in trouble then!

Good morning! I'm staring at the wrong computer screen (this one). Need to flip 45 degrees to the left to the dreaded work screen, but I don't want to!

I do that all day long as well. Prolly not the best setup but its the only time I get to sit here and catch up :)

This one was a doozy since it went so long and the new RODI unit is way more efficient than my old RO setup lol. Broke out the steam cleaner for extraction :p

I absolutely love this! Where did you find and what app are you all using for the duck alarm?
The gif is one from Giphy (see the multi-colored icon on the toolbar that is available when you are submitting a post). You can also go to giphy.com to review the gifs there as well. I'm not sure that my RODI alarm is actually a duck call, but it is one of the alarms on my phone that sounds like a duck call to me. :)

Its still early
Good morning,
Well, that didn't take long to get my Monday "opportunity". It looks like Monday will end sometime on Tuesday. I have to do some overnight systems testing.

Same here, it's on my iPhone. I was trying to find an alarm sound that would remind me that the RO/DI unit was on and ran across the duck sound. Duck...water....perfect! ;Joyful

Good morning, y'all

Last week at a job Ive been at for 11 years.
(Has anyone seen my rollerskates?)

I'm lucky to have a new job already lined up and I start the new gig on Monday.

Nothing like stressing out, huh?

Anyways.....

GOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING!!!
Freedom! the burden of the chains that weigh next to nothing because of being used to them is so apparent once they fall away! Had a job for 16 years it felt like anchor chains were cut away when i was fired. yeah the shock turbulence was disorienting but once out of that it was like gliding through the sea. also found a job the next week that i would not have looked for while plodding across the bottom.

I learned the hard way. Water dripping through the second floor to the first floor was not so much fun. It was a major nuisance but I managed to plumb my RO/DI system under the bathroom sink. Now I set the jugs in the shower and let her rip. I set an alarm but if I nap through it, I don't have a new indoor swimming pool.

this morning i went rock turning. Saturday i had put a banded serpent star into my DT. Sunday i moved rocks between my DT, my smaller bow front DT and a rectangular tank that was supposed to be a bare tank for quarantine. uh oh... two questions where was the starfish? was it pinned beneath a rock? good news it was in a gap between two piled rocks in the DT. Plus i rearranged some of the rocks/coral and i like it!!! Good Morning all!

Ouch! Thankfully our basement is unfinished, so its really just about cleaning up the mess and waste for me. Funny thing is I have the float valve sitting on a table next to the unit, plus have some of those water detection alarm things still in boxes lol. Laziness gets me every time
