  1. I'm confused; Tech Talk? What sorts of tech discussion will there be? Can I bring my laptop? It has pop-ups ... Will someone program my aquarium controller for me ? Can you test my water, or plumb my system ? Will someone show me how to properly reply to PM's ?
  2. Actually it is for IAQ. Depending on what climate you're at, it can be for either, in the south it's for IAQ. As you know, our goal in the southern tropical state is to build houses as tight as possible, no leaks. However the 1 thing most architects and AC companies omit or forget about is that the tighter you build the house, the worse IAQ gets. I really wish they wouldn't be called ERV's - the name is misleading for the use in the south. While it may not be what you're looking for, and may not work for what you are attempting to accomplish, I just wanted to correct that little misconception about ERV's and IAQ. Source: we used to build EPA rated EnergyStar rated homes built from SIPs. All of our houses far surpassed EPA ratings and we're some of the tightest, non-leaking structures the environmental testing firms had ever tested and rated. We installed ERVs into each of the houses we built for IAQ. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I have no experience with said units, however for another route of indoor air quality, look into an ERV - Energy Recovery Ventilator.
  4. wait. You actually set this up?
  5. ^ +1 Define spot on, and which test kits are you using, what are you testing for. Often, more so than not, GHA is an issue of low alk, low pH, and sometimes higher nutrients. Could also be a mineral issue. What size is the tank, lighting, content, parameters and test results, feeding and dosing habits if applicable. Salt used... there are so many avenues to explore, but would need some more info on your setup.
  6. Today I raided the old gas grill of it's never been used rotisserie setup, stripped parts from the grill and adapted them for the charcoal grill [emoji4] Who doesn't love some Picanha ?! https://vimeo.com/220265876 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hands down, some of the best burgers I've had. Clean, juicy, but no running stream of fat like you get at most burger joints.
  8. We ground some meat this evening, found a good mix and ratio that works well. The burger was juicy, but did not drip of fat. 6lbs of Angus brisket ($2.99 /lbs) 5lbs of Angus short rib chuck ($4.39 /lbs) 6lbs of Angus top sirloin ($3.78 /lbs) 4lbs of Bacon, smoked ($3.01 /lbs) All the meat was trimmed up pretty well, no byproducts, waste, cartilage, etc We ground shallots and garlic right into it for seasoning. No salts, preservatives or other junk. Good clean meat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Don't do it lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. You're not going to light a 72" tank sufficiently with 2x 52's. At least not if you're interested in growing SPS. You'll receive lackluster results that turn into "LED's suck" reviews... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This is easy
  12. He was at RAP by the way.
  13. LOL! I didn't see you stopping by - we were slammed for most of the show. Had a great time, made some good contacts, got to meet a lot of folks we've only talked to on the forums and FB Groups, or phone. I did get a chance to walk around a little bit, great selection of corals, great selection of equipment vendors.
  14. I'd be interested in both. How soon do they need to go? I've got to head to the east coast tomorrow afternoon, will be back Wednesday... could pickup on return trip? You're out in naples, east? Out by the Forestry tower? Oilwell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. @AquaFX - could you comment on proper prefilter carbon stages.. "Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual"
