    It's been a bit of a wait, that's for sure. I'm just excited so many are on board the GHL train! Seems like they got a ton of orders with their pre-sales and black friday! More customers in the U.S. helps us all!

    I just received mine today which was black 4 head doser with the kh kit which I preorder the day we could back on October 9th.

    I will look at getting it installed this weekend can’t wait.

    Mine will be here Thursday. I'm also getting a box from WWC on Thursday. Is the flu still going around? May have to call in sick. Lol

    I'll try not to bug you too much @Ditto when I'm figuring out the setup. ;Hilarious Let us know when you get yours running!

    Got my tracking number today! Looks like I’ll be busy this weekend! Good timing too because my alkalinity has been off lately.

    I just received my kh-doser slave combo. I also just found out that it doesn't come with a PAB cable to hook up to the Profilux, which is very annoying. If it's required for it to work, why wouldn't it come with it? Now I have to wait for a cable to ship before I can install it. Awesome.

    Yeah, nothing besides the p4 package kits come with one. Wish they made everyone more aware of this. Even better make it a drop-down box when people order asking what length they want. They don't add them to keep prices low as possible, since many people want different lengths (that's what they say). Still a 1 meter pab or a drop-down selection at checkout would be nice. You can use regular ethernet cat5 rj45 cables found at radio shack, office supplies stores, big box stores, etc... but I prefer just to use all ghl labeled stuff for the heck of it, since it's not that much more cost.

    Thanks for the advice on the cat5 rj45 cable. I just checked and it's 15$ shipping for a cable to Texas (from GHL). I think I'll pass!

    My kit showed up today! I was fortunate enough to read the manual and knew to add the cables to my order. Can't wait to get it set up.

    Yeah man, I wouldn't order just the cable if I didn't have to. I bought a few with my last order from ghl, but free shipping since it was over whatever amount. All it is, is cat5 with a sticker on it that says pab and a box that says GHL. (Which u already know if you have a p4).

    Mine comes in tomorrow! Pretty stoked!

    I just found a cable on Amazon for 5 bucks with free one-day shipping. Now I just need to find some other things I need to get that one-day shipping free lol.

    So I'm just trying to work out how to hook this all up in my head. I have a profilux 4, a doser 2.1, a slave doser 2.1, and the kh-director. I'm going to be setting it up with a triton method dosing regimen. Would it be easiest to just daisy chain all together via the ethernet cables and control everything via the profilux?

    My kh director came in safe and sound yesterday! Hopefully will get it set up this weekend. I had to build a little home for all my GHL equipment real quick first though. It's a work in progress...
