Re: [APD] 2 more tedious compressed gas set up questions

I don't know how difficult it is to get the solenoid off of
the the Mil package. It should be threaded on with only a
reasonable amount of torque and, therfore removable.

As far as need, no, you definitely do not need a pH
controller. You can run the CO2 24-7 or you can use the
solenoid to run the CO2 only when the lights are on --
instead of plugging it into a pH controller plug it into
the lights timer. Or you can plug the solenoid into a
separate timer and have the CO2 run an hour or so ahead of
the lights and go off in the late afternoon or an hour or
so ahead of lights off. 

You won't get pH swings wider than than about 0.2 units
with any of these methods.

Have plants, have fun,
