On day one of vacation I got the RO/DI system fully automated.

I also upgraded for a 25g barrel to a 55g barrel.

I started off by drilling the holes in the barrel. 5 holes total, one for a bottom drain, another for gravity feed ATO, two for the float switch’s, and last one for water in. The water in has a float valve as an added safety. I then ran 50’ usb cable from the tank to the up stairs laundry room. I hooked up an EB8, PM2 (I only needed pm2 for breakout box), and a breakout box. Then hooked up a 110v water solenoid to main water into ro system.

I wired the float switch at the bottom of barrel to switch 1 and the top float switch to spot 2.
Then programmed the apex like this

So when the water falls enough to cause the bottom switch to open it will trigger the outlet to turn on.

Then when the water triggers switch 2 to open if will trigger the outlet to turn off.

So after having my fish population wiped out I decided to get my qt tank setup. I picked up a 30long a few months back but the tank was leaking. So I broke it down and re-siliconed the tank. Setup it up two weeks ago cycled with some live rock from my sump.

I first setup with a temp 5gal bucket as a sump but picked up a 10 gal for a sump/fuge. Then tossed a cheap led light on it.

Planning to run copper on this setup
