2 quick questions:
- Will the reef octopus return pumps work with the jebao cables? Seem to, but not sure if anyone tested this.

- Has anyone been able to get a flow meter working with RA? Now that the apex has one, I would be keen on having one for my setup. I know some people tried, but it has been over a year and not sure how things have progressed.

thanks,
Lucho

These seem pretty interesting if they work and can be integrated into RA. Roberto, have you tried them by any chance?

The problem with these types of flow meter is that they get clogged.
It has a small blade impeller inside that rotates as water flows through.
The best one is ultrasonic, but they are expensive.

Thanks Roberto. I guess the Apex guys will experience this problem then.
The ultrasonic ones are expensive indeed! Have you tried one? Would you recommend any one in particular?
