    During my tank crash my aquatronica controller lay in salt water. Battery acid was visible. At that point I should have opened it up but I didn't care. Is it repairable or should I bin it?

    Edit. Starting my tank again

    Repairs will have to go back to Aquatronica Italy I'm afraid. It might be a better idea to get the new style controller as it works much better IMO.

    eish buck.. im sure if the salt were removed and the points checked for corrosion and cleaned it should still function.. if they can fix cellphones that have gone through the wash they should be able to sort this goodie out..
