how long is the cord from the pressure tube to the box/outlet you plug your pump in to? I saw you mentioned it wasn't long enough, which is the same ordeal Im dealing with now with a different companies ATO. I keep my powerstrip, controllers, and whatever else, next to the tank in a little ottoman treasure chest looking thing - so the sensor's connecting cord/tube needs to be long enough to reach to there.
Bump on this.
I've been reading through this thread and have a question. I see that a few have posted that they are using this unit on their 10 gallon, 8 gallon etc tanks. I have a 10 gallon, no sump, a HOB filter, an HOB refugium and am thinking of buying one of these. It seems though that a potential of 1/2" water evaporation before it kicks in would change the salinity of a 10 gallon (probably 9 actual gallons of water in tank) too significantly. My approximate calculations makes that a little more than a third of a gallon of evaporation, at least potentially. If it was only 1/4" drop before kickin it would of course be half of that which would not be a problem.
Any input or experiences with this? Anyone measured salinity change in their water using the Avast ATO?
