    i feel your pain, but I'm still very leary of trusting ICP. have you sent in a blank sample of just your saltwater? To a different lab? To a lab that uses a different method than ICP-OES? I know its an extra expense, but either there is a tin epidemic in reefing, or there is something related to the analytical method that is showing this as an issue. And as might guess, the primary provider of these tests has given you a reason to do more tests, and pay them more money to do so. In my opinion, the probability of this being a biological issue or a nutrient issue is so much greater than the probability that one specific metal is causing you an issue. Keep in mind most reefers (and most people) have no actual idea what they are talking about. I have two degrees in geoscience, with my graduate degree in geochemistry and a decade using analytical chemistry to solve problems with minerals and water. I am very qualified in this area. I am still only marginally know what I'm talking about.

    1link status light doesn’t turn on

    Is there anything else plugged into it? I had a busted WAV that shorted out the whole 1link board (and EB832 24v ports). It was fine as soon as i removed it, but otherwise it was not happy.

    I think you're better off putting a sample port after your last carbon block than in your effluent line. Another way to monitor or predict failure is with a totalizing flowmeter on your feed water. This isn't foolproof, because the water utilities vary the chloramine dosing pretty regularly based on season, storms and other upsets, but it's a good yard stick.

    Yikes, that is pretty high. I've run my RODI a few different ways (single standard carbon, loose catalytic carbon with chloramine block, and now just universals), but I'm currently just using two BRS universal carbon blocks in series. No or breakthrough yet.
