Week 4: Planning a Safer Tank with Redundancy | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

July 18th, 2015
It's Week 4 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, and this week we are sharing a few tips on the single most important topic related to maintaining a reef aquarium long-term; redundancy.

We are going to cover the top ten major systems your reef ecosystem relies on in order of the most common equipment failures and most likely to cause catastrophic consequences. We will go over why they are issues as well as present some solutions.

For our purposes redundancy means both back up systems and equipment but also safety fail-safes such as shut off’s, alarms, and notifications. Most of us tend to live in a world where we just expect things to work and often have a misguided impression that it will work indefinitely or when it fails there will be limited impact that we can deal with when it does fail.

This episode is really about brainstorming all the things we need to consider and looking at the options for planning a tank like this. We will show the actual installation of our redundancy solutions when we install the equipment in future weeks.
