Just got the Apex AquaController and hooked up my lights, circulation pumps and heater to the power bar. The manual appears way to technical to me; is there an EASY button?

Need help with
1. figuring out display unit's menu buttons/icons
2. how to program the date/time
3. how to tell the Apex what's hooked up and to which outlet
4. program times for lights & temp

If there's a thread or video out there about basic set-up, would appreciate a little help. Otherwise, I'm having my local reef buddies come over and setup.

Thanks in advance,

GB

The manual may seem difficult but if you play with the unit (attempt to do some programming) it will not seem difficult any more. You just have to play with it a little. Anything you can't figure out, just ask. I had the same problem about a week ago. I am very comfortable now.

Just wondering what the intial outlet programs are for? there's about 6 of them before the actual powerbar outlets. thought about deleting them.

Those are virtual outlets that control variable speed pumps, email and alarms. You don't want to delete them - you'll need at least some of them.
