Hey Guys need help please, I need to keep my tank running during load shedding. I have the following

Return Pump 20W
Heater 200w
Bio pellet reactor 10W
Skimmer 20W

Should I go the Inverter Route?

Who could advise me on the correct size Battery and Inverter etc, I'm rather clueless with this. Thanks

@Morak I need to keep my bio pellet reactor going, otherwise it will fail. Is a 600w sine wave the right one? Is there a particular 102ah battery I should ge

I bought the modified sine wave and it works for my return pump, have not tried it on anything else. Doubt the brand of battery will make much of a difference, I used ebucks to get one from Makro

@Rors we have some really awesome pure sine waves inverter in customs at the moment. Truly plug and play. Took me a long time to find. Hold out a few days until we release the pricing it will be 1000w true sine so you can run your full tank and you won't even know there is load shedding, with auto switch over. Don't buy a modified sine if you can get a pure sine unit.
