Auto Water Change Systems
Changing the water in a saltwater aquarium is probably the task that takes the most time. Hauling heavy water filled buckets around has inherent risks, and there are ways to automate the task of changing your aquariums water. With an Automatic Water Changing system you can program it to change a certain amount of water every day. That will help export waste and excess nutrients while importing new calcium, alkalinity, trace, elements and much more in the new water.
There are a few systems that reefers are using for their saltwater aquariums. Many aquarists are using a pre-built system like the AutoAqua AWC Auto Water Changer, or compiling a heavy duty dosing system, like the Neptune DOS and an aquarium controller. We highly recommend using pre-built systems for their safety features, but with the correct programming any aquarium controller can become the brain behind a safe automatic water changing system.
