    its running good. I think I have it dialed in to where I need to for now. I have it turning on at 7.0 and off at 6.9 (ph2)
    CA is 457, ALk 9.63 but Mg is high at 1600.

    Nice. I have mine but still need to get a few more thing before I set it up.

    Installed the BRS 150g kit and RODI booster Buddie. This really did increase my water pressure. I am tapping it of the water line from the ice maker feed i dont use behind refrig. I get a measly 20 psi when measured, now at 70 psi right before the membranes.
    I also like the auto off feature when the pressure is to high (float valve closed). The amount of waste water to RODI is about 1:1, i know this since im collecting it in another barrel. MD carries the Aquaticlife Smart Buddie Booster pump. There are a few more connections but I feel its a great value.

    Nice
    I have a extra 1:1 high efficiency membrane if you ever need one.

    What is your mls/minute for your effluent and what is your pH set within the chamber?

    Not sure the rate since Im doing the other 'method' where i just go by the pH. I have it switch between 6.9 and 7. My Ca is at 440

    How often does it switch on/off in a 24hour period? Thats a very small gap. I was afraid of my solenoid failing prematurely when i had a setting of 6.75 off and 7 on. It would switch off maybe 2-3 times during lights on but 10-12 times during lights off.

    It switches about 2 times an hour. The effluent is little more that a trickle , stream.

    Looks like you have a Burket solenoid. I believe they have a on/off life cycle of 1 billion. You're good. lol. I have a very inexpensive regulator. Time to get alanle to build me one and get my reactor back on line.

    What is the "other method" you speak of?

    Constant stream method, I feel it works well once dialed in. Does not require a pricey feed pump and has less chance of the line being effluent line getting clogged. It might be harder on the regulator, but I feel it's worth it.

    Do you think you'll go through more CO2 using this method?

    Not sure, but looks like it might be less since solenoid is closed half the time.

    Did you notice in watching that video that he says,later in the video, to do what he said not to do in the beginning? Starting above a ph of 7.0 is safe but will not melt any media as that is ph neutral. He says that he had calcium increase to meet demand once he went down below ph7.0 to 6.8 or so? which is what he referenced not to do in the begging. Ca2 reactors take time to get them 'tuned'. If your using an established tank that has long standing calcium,alk stability then its super easy. It looks to me like 'the other method' isn't any different than what is said in the 'Geo' manual or the 'Korallin' manual. These manuals are just quicker methods to get to your goal once you have your tank in a balanced place. I have both the Geo and the Korallin Ca2 reactors running in two seperated tanks. They both are great. I do use an electronic solenoid along with hospital grade Co2 regulators. I hope this helps some. I do go by what my tank needs and I have adjusted the affluent drip to supply what is needed by my tanks.
