    Quick question. What do you guys use for catch cans? A guy from Florida told me he used tuna cans. Any help would be appreciated.
    thanks-Aric

    Tuna cans work fine, uniformity is what you're after. Fimco uses some kind
    of special catch can, you might PM him. There is a water purveyor north
    of here that requires a water audit before the system can be activated.
    Unless the system achieves 80% uniformity, it cannot be turned on. As you
    might guess, the lowballers disappeared from that market. 80% is not easy.

    Yeah it is nice that Peter found a place to get the catch cans at. I spent so long trying to find a place to buy them and only found some place in Austrialia. Plus these are cheap =)

    That's true, I forgot Calsense automatically adjusts for poor coverage. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the quick responses
     
  9. No problem. Come back anytime. We rarely get thanked around here. Even after 28 years of service I never get tired of a thank you.
