    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

    Bio reactor and return pump, that's all you need on the backup.

    @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.
