Paul, this wont work as when the lights turn off the magnetic field
disappears therefore causing a variance in the Ph reading. I am using a
Dupla Microprocessor as the controller and this records all fluctuations in
Ph so it can try to improvise for fluctuations. Eventually it will stop
injecting Co2 during the day to make up for the Ph drops at night. (So Im
told by the Dupla guys). I tell you, if its not one thing its another.
