Atk

Good afternoon,
I was interested in buying the ATK setup but I have been advised to stay far away from it from 5 local reefers. Everyone seems to be having problems with it. Is there any software updates coming to fix the issue with the ATK? If so when? I can list the problems my fiends are having but Iím sure you are aware of problems the ATK is having as a quick google search shows a lot. I have been running apex for years and just purchased the new apex with wav pumps during Black Friday sale so Iím hoping to have a apex solution to my ATO needs from apex and not another vendor.

Most of the issues Iíve seen are people not understanding how it works.

If you have it connected to the Apex and understand how the programming works, it is excellent. Iím in the NSI group for it so Iíve been using it since before the general public has and itís been flawless.

Im hoping thats what it is but kind of worried on spending the money for a brick if thatís not the case. Why donít they make the programming easier for it? I guess I can ask one of the 5 people running it if they can sell me thereís or let me borrow it. I have one tell me today he has came home twice to sump running dry.

The programming is done for you if you use the Task function.

It does make some general time decisions that you may have to tweak but it will work for 90% if users.

You also need to understand what it is designed and programmed to do.

Go to the neptunesystems.com site. Then Support and then Get Started. The guide there will tell you almost everything you want to know about the ATK and most of the equipment.
