My panorama reef
 
It has been a while since is started this project.
Due to many other priorities it was halted.
Now i restarted it and planning to finish it this time.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...49df47063c.jpg

Present days: summer/autumn 2019

After a long break i resumed working on my panorama reef.

I had other priorities that needed my attention.
- complete renovation of my 250m2 rooftop
- installing PV system with 63 solarpanels to power my reeftanks
- summertime is also my time for watersport

now we are back on track

That’s a big PV system for residential, how many KVA?

14,56Megawat annual
15Kw max power
My annual consumption is 30MegaWatt, so i am coverimg just half of it

Not to derail into a PV discussion but.....

That is an amazing system, really large for residential in my latitude. I just completed a 7.5KVA system wit 26 panels that is predicted and on track to make 13.5MWH/A but we have some of the best irradiance on the planet in my area.

I know those roof mounts you are using are quite expensive. What cost more, the mounts or the modules (panels) that are on them? And 30MWH/Y? Are you running Halide lighting? Electric heat? Thatís a lot of energy.

I think powering a reefsystem is much a value added discussion as about the tank and inhabbitants itselves.

Indeed you are lucky with more sunlight making your system perform optimal throughout the year.
The modules are more expensive. I choose these flatfix fusion mounts from esdec because of the quick mounting system. Diy would have cost me much more in material and time to mount it all. https://youtu.be/qyS9h0wjl_0

Today i recieved this package
The U-Reef will be controlled by GHL Profilux and the KH Director.

Normaly i build everything myself with discrete components. After all those years doing DiY it was time to try something more advanced.
It seems GHL has been running along quite a while and they produce state of the art products.

Yeah... i am about to live my dream

Now waiting for a quotation for the glass

Meanwhile i used a old side table to build my (portable) GHL measuring station around.

Now i am playing with the GHL stuff.
The KH director is real great and consistent. You can also adjust a correction factor to meet your own reference standaard. Which i did...

I should have looked nicer, but i am not concerned about the strenght nor the look of the construction. I guess i did not passed the elegance test[emoji13]

To make sure my floor could handle the load , i asked my constructor of another building project to look at my plans. Due to other works he had laying around, it took him 3 week to do the math. He also consulted a colleague constructor about the matter and they came up with the following advice.

Tank3 was a problem.
I wanted it 300x120x55wh
That was critical.....

so the tank was downsized to 200x120x40wh

Thanks m8


The glas for section 1 and 2 has been ordered and will be deliverd 1st week of 2020.
Because i did want to push things and many manufacturers stop production around 16 december which caused a pileup in orders.

Section 3 will be placed after te removal of the current tank sitting on that space.

Following...looks like its going to be a monster build/

glennf 09/03/2021 11:43 PM

Due to life we had some delay

Now there is no way back!
The glass arrived today, so we have to pull through with this project from now on.
I yet have to detemine whether is will glue it as one single tank or as 3 part segmented tank for redundancy.
