    Pics in first post.

    Jason I should reiterate that the 'Universal' is the model for the sump. I am curious to see if the Osmomot will work in the sump because I was led to believe it is slightly more accurate. They both have the same sensors, but the Osmomot is detecting a drop in water level in the box shown above. Not the whole sump.

    That's the pump!

    Last month the Universal was on back order.
    If it still is, I'll let you know ASAP how the Osmomot works in the sump.

    Do you have a baffle to mount the Universal on?
    It's a bear to mount on the side of the tank.

    I've got it. I wasn't able to pick up the Kalk Dose now but that's OK $$$. I don't have baffles but I'll cut out the molding around the top
    I'll let you know how it works out

    Start a 'Universal' thread soon with pics so I can see how you mounted it and hear your impressions. ;) :)
