Thumbs down Apex Flow Not worth it,, DON'T BUY !!!!

I have a full blow Apex,, From 6 Probes,, Feeder,,, 6 optical sensors,,,Break out box with a number of switches on it.. 3 leak detectors .. ATO pumps and more. .Just to show this is a not your basic set up... How ever sometime ago I added a $299.99 Apex FMM 4 flow monitor kit on, And IT SUCKS!!!!!!! . Have the time It don't read the flow, and when it wants to its wrong.. (noting jam inside it) I warn all of you don't but this if your thinking about it.. i spoke to many of my fellow reefers and they have the same problems , 9 out of 10 uses agree. Even the vendor ( which I wont say right know who ) I purchased this from wont allow me to post a bad review on it,

Very disappointed .. Spoke to some joke at the show about it and got brush off . buyer beware !!!!

It's a cheap Chinese paddle wheel flow meter and you can buy the exact thing on Amazon for just a little over quarter of that places retail price. God knows what the whole sale price is from China! The biggest problem is that it kills your flow while still giving you inaccurate readings.


1" sensor

1/2" Sensor


https://www.amazon.com/DIGITEN-Senso...ustrial&sr=1-1


As for that site I have had the same issue. They seem to selectively audit reviews and in some cases for some companies they kick out the one star reviews. The other big retailer is much cheaper so I typically buy from them anyway and save 20%
