    BBMarlin's 125G - Skimmerless SPS Reef

    That avast pump will be loud, fair warning! I put mine at the aquarium, not at the RODI tank. It works like a champ

    I use the diaphram pumps from Avast Marine. They are noisy but it pulls from the garage up through the ceiling down the inside of a wall, probably like 45 feet or more

    BBMarlin's 125G - Skimmerless SPS Reef

    I have a 60 gallon RODI reservoir in my garage and the RODI unit is in the house on the same wall as my washer/dryer. I use a float valve on the tank to shut off the flow, and I have a booster pump with a pressure sensor shutoff switch. I manually run the RODI unit whenever it looks like the big tank needs topping off. When it's full the float closes which turns off the booster pump. I also have a HM Digital FM-2 filter monitor that beeps at me when it the flow is cut off. I don't like to leave the RODI unit on when not needed. My ATO pumps draw topoff water directly from the tank in the garage.

    New builds are always fun, sometimes I think its the best part of reefing

    Sorry to hear about the problems, but seems like excellent detective work!

    1link status light doesn’t turn on

    The green status light should come on as soon as you plug the aquabus cable into your system. Sounds like the 1link is bad if the cable is good.

    Alkatronics or Aoex

    If you already know how much to dose your tank and just can't always be there to do it manually, then the doser is a simpler setup in my opinion. I think there are options for programmable dosers that don't require an apex?
