    I haven't noticed to much but I checked my orp today and yesterday before and after my orp which was low 85 is now at 215. It doubled overnight. I thought that was interesting. I looked at the sites.....but remeber the ecoaqualizer only uses one pole on both. So that would change some things . This site is using both poles on the water. http://www.magnetsource.com/Solutions_Pages/watermags.html

    The German site of which I am a member meerwasserforum.com has been discussing the ECO-Aqualizer too.  Today, one of the members posted these two sites.  I found them fascinating:

    www.plocher.de

    and

    www.grander.com

    Tell me what you think!!!

    Edit: The first site seems to be having some problems right now. The second one does work, however. Enjoy!

    Trickamn, yah, you're wrong. 100g viewing with appox. 60g sump/skimmer(second sump)/surge. I do find it funny that you've only posted on this particluar subject, and none others.

    Ok, I wasn't bashing Eco. They have put alot of time and testing into their product. My unit is ment for a larger system, I was, and still am planning on attaching it to my othet system. When used correct it will it works, but as I stated at the bottom of my last post :

    On another note: pump was burnt out, damn rio.

    That being the last thing I wrote, you'd kinda think NOTHING WAS CAUSED BY THE UNIT IN QUESTION BECAUSE IT WASN'T WORKING.

    Again, they do have a solid product, I believe. I am way to tired, and now pissed off, to even think of writting anymore, I shouldn't have logged in. What ever I write will definitly come out wrong, if you and Carl Denzer thought I was bashing it. I'll repost when I'm done moving, you think its hard moving your 55g, try 3000g, while still selling, packing, shipping, delivering and setting up the new facility (2x larger).

    Hey Gresham,
                   Sounds like you had a rough week.  3000g that must be amazing tank.  But yeah I could understand the frustration in moving it.  I apoligize for being wrong about your tank size, but my main point is we need to very specific so everyone  can use the facts.  I am interested in all the results from more than just my tank.  Bum deal about the rio, but you helped me make my decision to plumb mine into the main Iwaki (md30rlxt) pump after reading that.  I figured the flow would be more reliable than any powerhead.  When I am finished testing I want to write a full review of this product based on facts and results.  So keep me posted thanks. [smiley=thinking2.gif] [smiley=wave.gif] Only posted on this subject becuase I was on reef central and Matt asked me to come over and join the discussion and by the way the only reason I heard it was on the wrong tank size was from eco. I had sent him a link to your guys forum. Well take it easy Gresham...See I told Carl I would write a reveiw based on my findings. Have a good weekend guys.

    Water becomes crystal clarity

    Animals maintain vibrant colors

    Animals look very happy and healthy

    All of the above are the claims made by the Ecoaqualizer.  In red I highlighted things we can test that are either true or false.  Hey Gresham do you have a light meter?  Could you do a before and after with light transmission if you do.  Anyone else have a light meter and the ecoaqualizer.  Unfornately I don't.

    Now you are thinking Trickman! We gotta do that.
    Got any pics of it on your setup, I'd like to see it in action!
