Can I cut the clear pressure sensor tube that is placed in the water? I would like to trim it down to have a lower profile as I have a wooden canopy that closes over the tank?

Also the sensor tubing is a little rigid, can I put 90degree elbows in or will this wreak too much havoc with the sensor?

Thanks in advance!! Works great with the apex controller.:dance:

Yes, you can cut the acrylic sensor tube down to about an inch total length. 90 elbow john guest fittings are not a problem either :)

Awesome, I already did, just could not for the life of me see why it would be a big deal.

OK, Cool. I also noticed that this particular model seems to have a little larger margin for pump activation than 1/2". Any way to tighten that up a bit?
