I did not. Lee said to run the test he asked for.

I'll try it now.

First off sorry for the frustrations...If you can't control the unit with our code on, then you can try it tomorrow during a cycle and see...but based on the output you sent it should be good.

I recommend just take out the debug from the last code and see.

Colin, the override would not hold up the ato the way it was works but the order change I made may help.

Good Morning. everyone.
I uploaded Colin's suggestion last night and checked the relay activity this morning.
I saw a little relay activity on port 6 at 5:15 am and the sump was at the max level.

I decided to run a little further test so unplugged port 6 because I didn't want to add RO water right now because the physical level was fine as was the salinity.

I drained a gallon of water of into a jug. Port6 turned on when I poured the water back in it turned off.

It seems like it is working, but I'm going to keep an eye on it.

Thanks again for everything. Sorry I was in a bad mood before I started working on this last night and the lack of knowledge working with the serial monitor along with the wireless being out added to it.

I'm better today.

Awesome! Try to catch the regular cycle and tell us how it goes!

cool! I have been following this thread a little and can completely understand your frustration. The nice thing though is that everyone here (or at least most everyone) are all willing to help. That's one of the things I love about it and I have had my controller since almost the beginning of the project a few years ago. Sorry to hijack the thread... just wanted to chime in a little. :-)

Colin I caught the 1pm cycle and it looked good, but I'm not 100% certain yet becuse the level was at 29% for the entire exchange and as soon as the pump stopped sending water to the chamber it went to 30% so it never really got low enough to trigger the ATO, but I'll watch it and try to catch the 7pm cycle.

Binder; thanks for the comments. You're not hijacking the thread, you made a comment and a nice one at that.
Colin and Lee have been great helping me. I sure there are others that chime in and help like you and Roberto, but in this case it was these two that put up with my lack of knowledge and it looks like they figured out something that works.

I would like to thank you for the work you put into the scene too. I can't wait to get my new phone so I can try out your Andriod App.

You're welcome. :)

btw, there's some more cool features coming soon in the app (if you haven't been looking at the Android Reef Angel Status thread on here). :)

I have been looking at the Andriod thread. I can't say I've been following yet, but I've been looking at it. :)

I caught the 7pm cycle and it worked perfectly.
While the water exchange was going on I drained about a quart of water out of the tank so that when it ended it was definitely going to be below 29% I also plugged a light into port6 to see when the port came on without actually dumping RO water in.

2 min after the exchange ended Port6 turned on and then I started putting the quart of water I drained back into the tank and when it reached 31% it turned of Port6 (the light).

Great job Colin.
Thanks for the help Lee.
I think we can close this case. :)
