Thanks bob1435 for stopping by and for the compliment.
It's a little tight, but it will work.
Tonight I am going to do a little more work on it. I am going to bring out the doser and stage it where I want it, along with the apex and start running the cords.
I want to have water in the tank before the end of August.
I will keep posting my progress, so stay tune.
