    Hi Guys

    Ive bought a second hand Tunza 6105 pump (2 of them ) + a 7096 controller at a good price from a fellow reefer on MASA.
    Only thing is the owner dosnt have the CD any more, is there a way in which one could download the info on the CD directly off the webb ?

    Any useful tips that i need to know ?

    Must say the pumps work awesomely :)

    Hi bud,

    I will download the software for you.
    You can then just visit me and I can put it on a memory stick for you.

    Hi Lean

    I connected everything up yesterday, but as soon as i plugged the 2nd pump into the controller it switched off. Just the one pump runs then. Any Idea on why its doing so?

    The pumps will not fire at the same time, unless you set them to do that.
    I think you need to plug them into port 1 and 3.

    Let me know when you want to visit so I can have the software ready.

    download the software and configure the controller like you want it, it might be programmed diffrently to how you think or want it to work.

    have a question to ask:

    I have manually adjusted the flow rate of the pumps on the power box thing(little white screws)

    So then on the 7096 controller if i run it at 100pct does it overide the manual adjusted power or is it running at 100 pct of the manual power selected level ?


    Kind regards

    the white screw sets the max output of the individual pump. and will not affect the other pumps. it overrides the controller to so if the controller says pump set to 100% and the white screw is set to 70%the max output for that particular pump will be 70%

    Hi bud,

    do you have the software installed yet?

    The best is to start slow and ramp up the flow over time.
    It took some time for my softies to get used to the higher flow in my tank.
