pH controller-ballast incompatibilities
For the first time I have a question that you haven't spontaneously answered
before I got around to answering it. I have a Pinpoint pH monitor. It
initially functioned erratically when the lights were on (Coralife
electronic ballasts). The problem mysteriously disappeared after a month or
two. I did add a grounding probe during the interval but the problem did
not disappear immediately, so I doubt that's the solution. The monitor also
has a similar problem on another tank with Vis-i-Lux ballasts. I can live
with taking pH readings when the lights are out, but now I would like to
add CO2 using a pH controller. I anticipate more incompatibility problems.
Does anyone have experience with brands of controllers/electrodes that are
compatible with the Coralife and Vis-i-Lux ballasts? If anyone has any
insight on the cause of the mysterious conflict elimination (and suggestions
on how to repeat this in the second tank), I would be very interested in
that too. Thanks for the help.
