Equipment / Re: Skimmer line outside help

I donít  run a fuge on the 75. I struggle with low nutrients.

I just remember people saying that they have pH from 8.1 at night to 8.4 in the day after running their intake outside. My evidence is telling me itís something else driving their high pH. Not the skimmer intake. What a shame.

Even now at 3pm the pH is only 8.04. Looks like Iíll be putting the scrubbers back online tonight. Thatís unfortunate.

Do you run a refugium or any lighting at night? That is a good way to keep PH elevated at night. I think most of us struggle with lower PH in the summer and window because of keeping the houses shut up with Ac and heating. Since I don't have anything to pull the CO2 out, I just periodically open all the windows at night and flush the whole house.

Well Jeff my objective was to:
1. Save money on CO2 absorbing media because I have two systems running now
2. Get a higher, more consistent pH through the night and a slight bump up in the day.

And it looks like neither will be achieved. 

I think youíre right about a blower but that would cancel out the money savings on the CO2 media. Unfortunately.

The fish room isnít quite the lowest part of the house. I also have a basement thatís lower.

Youíre right Jeff. 8.0 overnight is a decent number but again, that is with the CO2 scrubber online. It would be significantly lower if I used nothing.
Daytime readings with the scrubber average around 8.25. My intentions were to get that around 8.3. But it doesnít look like thatís going to happen unfortunately.

I never really saw much of an increase in ph with my skimmer line run outside.  What made the biggest difference was when I installed the blower blowing out the window that I have shown you.  With your tank in the lowest part of your house the co2 probably is settling there.  I think even if you are able to set something up anywhere in your lower level it will help.  I dont think 8.0 overnight is bad at all.  How are your daytime readings?
