Thanks Curt! I think I understand. I'll play with this the next few days and report back.

I hope I'm not shooting myself in the foot and defeating the purpose of monitoring salinity. I've been doing this manually and am confident in my ability to keep the tank stable in normal circumstances so I'm comfortable trying this out. We'll see. :)

Curt,

Can you check my code? I've adjusted the start time and run time. It compiles with no errors. I just want a 2nd eye before I load and test. Thanks!

Code: Select all
#include <ReefAngel_Features.h>
#include <Globals.h>
#include <RA_Wifi.h>
#include <Wire.h>
#include <OneWire.h>
#include <Time.h>
#include <DS1307RTC.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_NokiaLCD.h>
#include <RA_ATO.h>
#include <RA_Joystick.h>
#include <LED.h>
#include <RA_TempSensor.h>
#include <Relay.h>
#include <RA_PWM.h>
#include <Timer.h>
#include <Memory.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_Colors.h>
#include <RA_CustomColors.h>
#include <Salinity.h>
#include <RF.h>
#include <IO.h>
#include <ORP.h>
#include <AI.h>
#include <PH.h>
#include <WaterLevel.h>
#include <Humidity.h>
#include <DCPump.h>

looks ok. your changing of the time looks good and it appears that you just copied my code (which is expected).
