Nice controller! By Steve on 3/7/2012

So I listened to the BRS guys and decided to buy a controller right off the bat on a new 90 gallon setup, rather than phase it in over time. I looked at both the RKL and APEX Lite units. Dollar for dollar this system offered everything i needed, albeit without the bells & whistles (which in my experience are nice - but not must haves). I run the RKL on a 90 gallon DT with a 30 gallon sump/fuge.Added the dual float switches for ATO and 'run-dry' protection. Works flawlessly!

I don't know how I ever survived without this thing. It takes so much worry out of reeding. Great value!

I bought this reef keeper plus for my 120g and it works very well. All i wanted was an auto top off for my tank. Well the one i wanted was the tunze and its almost the same price as the reef keeper lite. So decided to go with the RKL which i programed to control my ATO,SKIMMER,RET PUMP,ETC . It didn't come with good instructions but all i did was call Digital Aquatics and they guided me step by step to program what i wanted. Definitely reccomend this controller to any reefer who's on a budget.
So Far, So Good By Michael on 2/12/2012

This is the first controller I've used and I'm still getting up to speed on it. But I saw several comments about lack of instructions and thought I'd mention that it a product manual is available at reefkeepers website. Also, I received a prompt, thorough, and easy to understand email in response to several questions I asked about my RKL Plus. So far, so good.
Nice monitor By Frank on 2/1/2012

This was the first reef monitor I have ever used in any of my aquariums and I have been very happy with it so far. It has saved my aquarium from a kalk overdose as well as a heater failure. This may not be the best controller out there, but it certainly is the best bang for your buck.
Horrible Costomer Service From Digital Aquatics BAD BUY By Ryan on 1/25/2012
Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Received this product and right out of the box the PH probe doesn't work. Warranty is provided by Digital Aquatics. Let me tell you this is the hardest place to ever get response out of. To call them is just impossible. Its been two weeks now and I still don't have a product that works nor do I think will ever work unless I purchase a Ph probe myself which will add to the already hefty price of the system. Hope no one ever has to deal with them.

At first, it is a Love / Hate relationship.
Once you understand how it thinks and what it is asking it is a BREEZE... WELL WORTH the learning curve.
CRAZY not to have it on any tank!!!
Great controller, poor directions By Brian on 12/3/2011
Brian would recommend this product to a friend
got this controller to for my 29g tank and love it. It does everything it says, if you can figure it out. No istructions in the box, just a quickstart guide which is a fold out pamphlet. No real programming instructions and for full instruction you have to go to their website. What if I dont have the internet in my home? Also for the 269.00 I paid for this I would expect a printed version of some directions to operate it. Ive figure a lot out, but some I still do know know.
RK lite review By Russell on 12/1/2011

Definitely worth the money. This thing does a lot for you and can make keeping a tank much easier and less time consuming.
However it doesn't come with instructions and it is difficult at times to be able to figure out how to program the machine to tell it what you want to do.

I bought the ReefKeeper Lite from BRS and have had nothing but good luck. It was easy to setup and has been a lifesaver!
