    Hi All

    I just purchased a Aquamedic CARX, soleniod and regulator, all AM aquipment.

    Can i run this without a ph controller? Or is it unsafe due to the fact that the PH can drop below 6.5 in tank and cause death.

    Also, what options of ph controllers do i have? or does it need to br aquamedic because all the other equip. is AM.


    Thanks

    Howzit bud! I feel it safer to run a CArx on a well calibrated Ph controller rather than without it, unless you going to be testing for Ca and Alk daily.
    Go for the Saga PH controller, much cheaper and very reliable, I also use this.

    Yes it will work dude! It should be around R1500.00 (well thats the last time I checked up a few years back).

    Much better priced than the Aquamedic controller price.

    2 more questions, Does the controller show the ph and control it. Or do you need a ph meter aswell and a controller.

    Where can i get this saga controller if it controls and measures ph
