  1. Tape the holes of the skimmer lid shut. The air from the locker can drift back up through the drain hose and out the lid. I like kalkwasser too like John mentioned, but throw it in your locker instead (a teaspoon every time you empty it is plenty).

    Barrel Tender Anticlimax

    This is a really good idea

    Barrel Tender Anticlimax

    First, support@avastmarine.com will get your questions answered SUPER fast The Barrel Tender uses a solenoid to turn the water off which in turn triggers your ASOV to turn off. What the Tender really excels at though is turning it ON exactly when it is needed. There are many ways to turn it off but the ON/OFF cycle when empty to full is a complete solution and saves $ on resin and more importantly time. It is one of those products where I wish people reviewed it 2 years after purchase rather than a couple weeks after, once you use it for a while you pretty much forget about ever making water for top off.

    FRAGFEST SALE!

    It's up now, the unplanned down time is a large part of the reason we are moving to a new site soon......

    AVAST FRAGFEST SALE!

    I will be headed to fragfest this weekend so we are offering up a 15% discount for WAMAS members with FREE delivery. Sale is valid between now and Saturday at midnight. I will be dragging my kids along to this event so I will only be there between 2pm and 4pm for order pickups. If you can't make this window we are happy to ship these items to you so just select the shipping method of choice at checkout. If you can make this window on Sunday, select the Club Meeting option for delivery at checkout and there is no cost. Coupon code is FRAGFEST2015 and you must be registered and logged in for it to work. This is a stacking coupon sale, the code stacks the discount on top of the combo discounts so it is a GREAT time to buy! Our new website that is rolling out in the next few weeks does not allow these stacked combo discounts so this may be the last time a sale like this comes up. After a fragfest free delivery order comes in, I will send an email to you with my cell# so you can text me to find me at the event, as I will probably leave all the orders in my truck so I don't have to setup a table.

    Cell phone porthole

    Good job! We are redesigning the phone porthole to be an accessory for our camera porthole (which is also getting a redesign) and also make it work with point and shoot and mirrorless cameras etc so the phone porthole as it was designed is pretty much gone forever. Love your implementation of it though!

    Free towels!

    Seriously, right? I have learned that putting the word "free" on the internet brings out all kinds. Someone even reviewed the free towels! Don't worry though, I submitted their info to the Canadian Pharmacy websites so justice will be serve via the spam machines

    CS1 Question

    The water level externally has almost no impact on the internal level. What does have an impact is how fast you are feeding water through the skimmer. If you try and feed more, the water rises. Different pumps, pump ages, cleanliness of pump will all have an impact on internal water level although once you have a consistent setup, the skimmer will operate pretty consistently as well. If your skimmer is plumbed via a manifold attachment or gravity feed startup is going to have an impact on the internal water level. Added nutrients to the system is also going to have an impact on foam level, some foods are worse than others. By lowering the standpipe section below the gate valve you lower the the lowest point the skimmer can be set at internally. This means that you can run more water at a faster feed rate through the skimmer and not overflow. Most people feed the skimmer too much water, I have posted Escobal's turnover calculations for skimmers many times here so a search should pull up the formula if your interested in what is "optimal".

    Free towels!

    Thanks guys, if you put a review on amazon just put something in the notes at checkout so we know to look there. A few people have been abusing the system and submitting orders without actually reviewing anything or ordering 3 towels with only one review etc, so we are checking these all pretty carefully.
