    How to build a CO2 regulator for your calcium reactor.

    Search for "stem adapter" in the od/type of metal your using.. It's basically a metal stem that acts like the ridgid hose and seals the metering valve In place and either male or female threaded on the other end. I just posted it a few pages back..

    How to build a CO2 regulator for your calcium reactor.

    I've been running that reg for about a year without issues.. It's a great cheap dual stage regulator.. I got two new old stock units =). I have a spare

    How to build a CO2 regulator for your calcium reactor.

    Just got a new metering valve to try out since my Hoke seems to be a pita to keep consistent. I've tried higher pressure, lower pressure and nothing stays consistent at all day to day.. I've been relying on my pH controller and I don't want that anymore.. So question is ; Got a Parker from...

    Possibly found the root cause of all my sps stn

    That sucks, I remember a bout of these on the original ones years ago.. I could be wrong but Are you sure that's not an mp10 wetside? My mp40's look nothing like it's a plastic nut holding it onto the shaft and a screw to the magnet.. .. My mp10's do though.. The mp40QD must have gotten a...

    250 Gallon reboot

    Awesome thanks for the info.. Pulled the trigger right after I posted here lol..It was so cheaply priced compared to others I was curious on function since your initial impression on build quality was so good.. It will be an upgrade for my larger tank.. I already have a geo 612 running with a...

    Official: Masterflex Calcium Reactor Setup Thread

    This is what I have on all the fittings of my reactor.. I also use one to a ball valve to bleed excess c02 if needed.. I think its pretty standard, I did tap one in for the bleed off though..

    Official: Masterflex Calcium Reactor Setup Thread

    The cartridge pump heads work great for AWC.. I've been using a 6 roller 6 cartridge pump ( all the cartridge's are adjustable occlusion fwiw) on two systems without a hitch for about a year. I thought I needed two but they look to be as sound as the easy load heads so one will be going onto...

    anyway to dose activated carbon?

    Seen the videos and I still will say I (and I'm sure a lot of other reefers) haven't noticed a difference in MY tank at all and don't feel it's totally necessary to totally Polish with reactor day in day out but again thats just me. I personally don't run carbon 24/7 maybe 1 week a month if I...

    anyway to dose activated carbon?

    As already said it's not even a thing and physically couldn't be.. Imo carbon is just as effective in a filter bag.. I went all big and bad in my last build and had dual Mrc reactors ( gfo/carbon) and within 3 months I went back to just putting it ( carbon) into a bag in a high flow area...

    Paying attention to RO/DI

    Me method is. Sediment should be when your psi start's to drop more than 4-5psi ( kinda dependant on your starting pressure though since there is big difference @ 70 psi compared to 50 psi for your membranes efficiency and minimum operating pressure ) or you visually see its totally changed...
