Time control over production, cheaper then Apex accessories.
Outstanding piece of mine and efficiency in a single unit, better then any Apex module and way cheaper. I have this hooked up in a room 42' from my Apex. Running a simple power cord and one cheap cat 5/6 multi wire I was able to set up a leak detector and control my water production with confidence. I didn't need to buy a bunch of extra Apex modules or expensive cords, and costly accessories for an Apex as with other units. I also didn't need a degree to figure it out... it's all here. Since I use a booster pump I ran a final float valve just as a last resort but I believe the solenoid switch is designed to fail closed. Lastly, as a personal paranoia from past incidents I set my Apex to only allow production during specific hours so that I know I'm normally around... AND I CAN'T FORGET I LEFT IT ON!
Great addition to my Reef
The install and subsequent programming of the Barrel Tender was quite easy. I have the Apex version and it is working perfectly . I have a small system and now with the BT I am able to produce large amounts of top off water without the fear that my holding cell will overflow. Overall, I would rate this as one of my most helpful aquarium purchases. Great piece of equipment !
Easy to install! Works great! I installed a float valve for extra protection
If you're reading this
Just go ahead and buy it. No Ragrets :)
Does exactly what it is meant to
Install was easy and straight forward it took about 15 minutes and most of that time was wondering where I put down the tape measure last . After set up was complete I hooked up my rodi and it filled the trash can I used to the top than shut off so I'm happy
