    Yorkshire Marine Club Meet

    Good response elsewhere, expecting to have twice as many attendees as last time. Any more takers? Come on, there are surely more Yorkshire reefers on here that can make it :unsure:

    Ro Unit Maintenance.

    Yes, that's plumbed wrong. What's been done will probably have caused a membrane failure too, as your putting water though it the wrong way :crazy: The flow order should be Sediment filter (bottom right), Carbon Block (bottom left) Membrane (Left hand side of the lower horizontal pod). The top...

    Yorkshire Marine Club Meet

    Cheeky bump... Surely there are other Yorkshire based reefers on here that would be interested? Maybe even a few that aren't Yorkshire based :good:

    Ro Unit Maintenance.

    15ppm out of the membrane is still very high really. Unless your feed TDS is about 1500ppm - 1000ppm above the legal maximum :/

    Ro Unit Maintenance.

    Oh, it could still be the TDS meter. they are electronic, a small knock will make them drift IME :sad: I don't like any meter you can't calibrate. If an electronic meter isn't calibrated, it's as accurate as pulling random numbers out of mid air for your test result :blink: However... It...

    Yorkshire Marine Club Meet

    Well, I've been promising to organise the next meet for quite some time, so decided it was time for me to get my backside into gear and actually do it... This one will be in the form of a Shop tour again. Next one will be something different. The alternative is taking an age to organise, so...

    Ro - More Pure Than Waste...

    The rated GPD output is achieved at ideal conditions - water at 25 degrees centigrade, pressure of 40-50PSI and 100PPM of TDS on the feed line. At home, you typically have more TDS in the water, colder water and lower pressure (though not in your case). Each of these factors will slow your...

    Ro - More Pure Than Waste...

    By the sounds of it, you have too much pressure. Membranes are only supposed to run at around 70psi maximum. Turning the tap "off" partially will fix that though. It also sounds to me like an incorrect restrictor has been fitted to it. IMO, I'd say the membrane will rupture if ran "as-is"...

    Converting From Tropical Freshwater To Marine

    Yer, you want the gunk out. It's not as it takes a long time to rot, more a medium time. This is what causes the Nitrate spikes

    Filter Question Regarding Cleaning It.....

    Every time I read a Bitteraspects thread I get the feeling I just have to click the report button due to ad-homen attacks he's making on other individual, purely because they are stating a point of view contrary to his. Why can't he just stick to the facts? When will he be reminded than Ad-homen...

    Converting From Tropical Freshwater To Marine

    Nitrate factory refers to a filters ability to build-up high nitrate levels in the main tank Any media that can catch Detritus is prone to it - this includes Live rock You need to clean the filter at least once a fortnight, ideally weekly however :good:

    Converting From Tropical Freshwater To Marine

    Filters only tend to become Nitrate factories if you too lazy to clean them. They will need weekly attention if you run them, but aren't a bad addition if kept clean...

    This Forum Needs A "clean Up"

    Well, I'll give truck 50% for the guess. A coral of the week thread is a worth pin if it's this weeks thread. But... Follow that link and you'll find 12 "coral of the week" threads pinned. At least 11 of them are out-of-date and no longer pin-worthy as they've been archived. Surely they need...

    This Forum Needs A "clean Up"

    I think possibly, you need to fix the threads that need un-pinning before you sort the ones that need to remain pinned, but fixed. An example is here. Do you really need 12 "coral of the week" threads? I think the most up-to-date is dated the 26th of September, so should any of them really be...

    Overload?

    In a 2ft deep tank, you can consider a 250W halide minimum lighting for a carpet nem, with a 400W halide lamp being preferable. :good: Carpets are one of the most light demanding nems going and have very high mortality rates. Also, when they are successful and thriving, they are prone to eating...

    Itunes Problems

    Does it give you a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier, it's similar to a URL like you'd use to connect to a web page, but more general to allow for more storage locations (think file mirror sites, you get the idea))? If so, please try the following; click start (or the Windows bar on Vista/7) run...

    Ro Unit?

    Under the sink is the most common place to put them, yes :good: They need to be near a mains water supply pipe, a waste water pipe/drain and an area you can collect water in. Mine's in the coal house, and was plumbed in specially :nod: Once the unit is in, it needs to be either easy to remove...

    Why Are You A Member On This Specific Forum?

    I joined as I got here via a Google search with an L66 pleco problem... I stayed a long while and it really boosted my knowledge of FW fish by reading around. I started Marine fish keeping. The Marines section was great as a newbie to marines, but really lacked the expert knowledge I needed as I...
