Got a quick question for you apex experts. I have been trying to setup my auto-water-change program inside my apex and i am stuck.
The way I am doing it right now is i made a v-outlet called 30G-WC. It contains when the water should be changed as well as on if feed d.
My auto-water change system contains 3 steps. Drain the sump, refill the sump, refill the new sw container. So 3 pumps. I have set my return pumps and protein skimmer to be off when 30G-WC is on.
I have got the turning on the physical outlets working, the problem is turning them off. I can time their turning on with defer statements, but there is no way i know of to turn them off after there job is done.
Any ideas or if you have a better way of doing this, then that would be great. Hopefully i didnt write this too confusingly. I am trying to get my tank to near automation by next sunday when i leave for boot camp and my mom takes it over.
Going to run it using timers. My sump has 3 sections. There is a float in the middle which prevents the return pumps and skimmer from running if the water level is too low. Only point of error I can think of is if the float switch fails.
