I want to clean empty my skimmer; can the Neptune Controller help, and other maintenance tasks made simple?


There are many 'temporary' or short tasks that might be done with your tank, to name a few:

Most tasks have 1 thing in common; some device needs to be temporarily turned ON or OFF.  The AC includes 4 feed cycles (A, B, C and D) and most often only 1 is needed for feeding, leaving the other 3 for maintenance or temporary tasks.  For example; want to turn off the skimmer so you can empty/clean it, try this:

If FeedD 000 Then SKM OFF

Want to turn on light for some after-hours tank work or viewing; how about this:

If FeedC 000 Then VGO OFF

The options are only limited by the number of timers and what you want to do...
