Yikes, did they warranty the fried doser?Meh, I've run some of the older Apex (haven't tried the new stuff), full GHL for about about 4 months, nothing but problems for me. It's not intuitive, hard to decipher, hard to program, inconsistent, and prone to water damage due to its stack design. I wanted to like it, really did....but in my opinion, falling behind the other options available and relying on reputation only.
I'd understand if it was operator headspace but I literally work in the controls industry (it's in my job title). I deal with logic, speak in AI's and DO's, 4-20, 0-5V all day....i hope I'm a little more knowledgeable than the average user.
The best reefing decision I made this year was selling the whole lot and switch to Hydros. 100% floored at the ease of use, programmability. Really thought out, top to bottom plus you don't get gouged on accessories such as cables, adapters, etc.
It's done everything I wanted it to do and allowed me to add double (monitor two temp and ph probes) and triple (3 separate and independent leak sensors) redundancies into my setup. Full AWC setup, direct-drive LED's from the controller, SMS, email alerting, growing DIY community. Really impressed
Hopefully, full Hydros + Alkatronic will be a good add for my tank. Looking forward to setting it up.
This is my GHL experience....nothing but problems.....sorry, not impressed.....I think I can apply for an assembler's job there, bout opened everything up to troubleshoot.
