- LDK Leak Detection Kit - Neptune Systems
Add leak detection to your Neptune Apex Controller
Neptune's LDK (Leak Detection Kit) includes everything you will need to add leak sensors to your Apex Controller within minutes.
- Includes two leak sensors
- Compatible with all Apex models
- Powered through Aquabus connection
- Add up to four total leak sensors
Detecting a leak early can be the difference between saving a tank to an entire loss. Neptune's Leak Detection Kit is the perfect solution for anyone that uses an Apex Controller to monitor and control their aquarium. The LDK system will plug right into your current Apex through the Aquabus connections and includes two Leak Detection Sensors. The sensors can be placed in multiple areas around your tank and its equipment.
Pairing an Apex Controller with the LDK lets you monitor and control your aquarium in the event of a leak or an overflow. With Neptune Fusion, you can easily set up alarms that will notify you if a sensor ever detects moisture, and also control any equipment that is powered by an EnergyBar. One common example of common programming and placement is to place a leak detection probe on top of your protein skimmers lid, and if it ever overflows the sensor can notify your Apex of the issue, and shut down the protein skimmer keeping all the skimmate from flowing back into your aquarium.
Suggested Sensor Locations:
- Under the Stand
- Under Carpeting
- Under RODI Systems
- Next to ATO Reservoirs
- Above Protein Skimmer Lids
- Under Potential Leak Points
- Next to External Equipment
1x FMM Module
2x LD-2 Solid Surface Leak Detection Probe
1x 3ft Aquabus Cable
Note: Updating your Apex Controller to the latest AOS is required.
Great product that saved me a few times By Daniel on 2/23/2019Daniel would recommend this product to a friendI love this but I have taken one star off b/c the metal on the bottom of these sensors seems to wear off and eventually give false alarms. That happened to me yesterday while in a hospital after surgery. Having said that, I love this and they give me peace of mind, so I'm getting more to have redundancy.
Pays for it self By Dellis on 10/25/2018Dellis would recommend this product to a friendLDK for the win
I have a sensor setting in a tray below
My algae scrubber hose started to leak
Looked like less than a teaspoon
Shut the scrubber pump off sound my siren I have hooked up
Potential water problem adverted
System down less than 5 minutes
So yeah these things pay for them selves
Constant disconnect issues By Chase89 on 4/13/2018Chase89 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI purchased the LDK before going out of town, so I wouldn't have to worry about leaks and to replace my ATO. I'm extremely disappointed in this product. Shortly after installing it I noticed noticed it wasn't turn on or off the ATO and would get stuck in what ever position it was last in. I contacted support about the issue and followed the troubleshooting steps over the course of what has now been at leats 3 or 4 weeks, due to slow response times. I've disconnected other equipment, move the FMM and reinstalled firmware. Neptune has come to the conclusion that it's EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) from an outside source like my AC unit, TV, computer, refrigerator, or basically anything else electronic. I wouldn't recommend this product due to poor design, as this appears to be a common issue with the FMM, due to what Neptune concludes as EMI. They should have protected the product against this if it's was so sensitive, which can be done. Don't buy this or any product with the FMM if you have electronics in your house.
Leak detection By Donald on 11/9/2017Donald would recommend this product to a friendI am extremely pleased with how this module works! It's already saved me from a major problem and mess.
The inlet line on my UV sterilizer slipped off and water was going in all those places where it's not suppose to go. However, the Leak Detection Kit did exactly what it was designed to do, it turned off the pumps that could be causing the problems and sent me a message. Taking "Billy Big Steps" to my fishroom I saw what had happened, made the appropriate changes to the system and fired things back up. The cleanup was minimal and I was one happy guy for having spent this money!
Love it By Bakerrichard27 on 10/4/2017Bakerrichard27 would recommend this product to a friendI got this as a birthday present and love it I only need two flow sensors so I wanted this kit and I purchased the flow sensors which are amazing love neptune
