Just read this and wondered if I misunderstood the pump issue as described in your other thread. It may instead be a plumbing problem where the pump is not getting a constant supply of water or it is cavitating. Either way, it's probably easiest to call/text me to work it out on the spot.

That's a unique issue. I have fixed a dozen or more Reeflo pumps. It would be an electrical issue, most likely a faulty connection or component. I'll be in town next Tuesday through Friday and would be happy to come look at it then. In the meantime, I have a few suggestions:While it's running, 1. wiggle/reposition the plug in the wall to see if that is the cause,2. wiggle the cord at the pump to see if that causes the interruption,3. wiggle the cord all over. 4. put your nose down by the motor to smell or hear any sparking.
After running, unplug the power cord and put your hand on the capacitor component, the box on the side of the motor, to see if it is really hot or actually cool to the touch.
That's all I can think of for now. After doing the things above, feel free to call me at 808-345-1049 for more troubleshooting help.
Aloha,Mark

I'm not sure how many of you check all new threads/posts in the General Discussion and similar informational sections like I do. You should. I learn something new there almost every day. The recent thread linked below is one such. It contained important info about testing kits, but also included information about checking salinity, very pertinent to this thread:http://utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=82850

How do you keep the water from spilling out of your tank like that?

Ok this is an exciting update!   the tank actually has some water in it. In fact it is now full of water. I played around with the aquascapping for a few weeks just trying to find something I liked.



here is the tank as its filling up and almost full



I have had a little trouble with my pump. when i plugged it in it is just pulsating a shooting water in spurts. not sure what is going on there. I might have to open it up and see whats going on. but it sure does move a lot of water.

And I always have to throw in a little update on my house renovations. we got new countertops on friday



and the garage addition is really coming along well.



If anyone has any thoughts on this pump problem let me know.

Yes that is a great way to raise it. Slowly raise it for sure. Do not dump salt straight into the tank or sump to try and correct it. LOL

You can also do water changes and remove less water than you add. Your sump level might be slightl high for a day or so but as the evap happens the salinity will slowly rise.

Sweet yeah I ended up ordering some last night on amazon and I'm holding off on my water change so I can re check the tanks and now the new water. Say it is that low 1.022 is it better to stop fresh water ato and maybe just top off with 1.025 and checking until the levels come back up?

I got some at Aquatic Dreams but I'm not sure if there are any of the Salt Lake stores that stock it. If the stores don't have it Amazon has it and if you are a prime member you can have it by Friday.

I know there are people that zero theirs and it works but knowing that these devices are only accurate to +- 3% at best I want them to be the most accurate in the range I will be measuring. Due to that I have always used the calibration solution for mine.
