View Full Version : 6095 alternating current and night mode with apex

Hello Everyone, I have a 125 and recently upgraded from cheap ebay pumps to 2 6095s tunzes.

On my previous set up I had the pumps alternating on 15 minute timers. Ex. Left for 15 min then off and right for 15min then off. i would move the timer on 1 a little bit and you would get both on for around 5 min and 5 minutes of peace. Also I had the pumps completely off for the whole night from 11pm to 6am.

Is there a way I can do this with the apex. Alternating from left to right a few minutes of both off and a few minutes of both on and night mode where the pumps would go to the lowest setting (like 10%)?

I have a 7096 contoller and it was doing the left to right thing but wanted to use them with the apex.

I have all cables and modules necessary and currently just turn them on or off manually through my phone but its getting old quick.

Thanks for your help!

You do this using Profiles. The Profiles set the intensity and duration of the cycle. Define several and then switch between them at different times of the day. For instance:

[VS_1]
Set Day
If Time 08:00 to 09:00 Then Low_Tide
If Time 20:00 to 21:00 Then High_Tide
If Time 21:00 to 08:00 Then Night

If you have read it yet, the Unofficial Users Guide stickied at the top of the forum is a valuable resource.
