Hi guys I have a CO2 system which isn’t connected to my tank. I’m looking for someone who knows there way around these and who can assist me in installing. Seems a waste just sitting in the cabinet. I’m in Benoni

Is it for a calcium reactor?

Looks like it, do you also have a pH controller with pH probe?

Yes I think so

Besides a PH controller (Which technically are not essential but highly recommended) you also going to need to feed the reactor it water. This is usually achieved with a T-piece off your return pump which feeds the reactor – you want a little tap on it to control the flow. See image.

If you google “Setting up calcium reactor their some very well put together pieces on the task.

I'm on the opposite end of Town unfortunately. They not nearly as complicated as they look. If you don't come right give me a shout I will talk you through it.

Also got a instruction manual for a Reef Octopus Calcium reactor lying around somewhere. I have a Deltec one and Reef Octopus one. That one looks like a Skimz but they all work on the same basic manner.
