    This is what my current wiring looks like.

    This is the plan (not a lot of detail)

    And this is where I am at the moment. This includes a PLC, which will be used to monitor and log at least Temp and PH, and will control timing on lights and pumps. It will also switch my two heaters as well as my fan within certain temperature bands. I am very interested to log things like PH and Temp to my PC before implementing control and after. Will take a reading every 10 minutes or so and put these onto graphs.

    I was lucky enough to get most of these components for free, which makes things a lot easier.

    Def the last one.

    Is each pump, power head going to have its own trip switch?

    I am grouping the pumps in the DT at the moment. Only the return pump on a different Circuit Breaker.
