Sorry, video is out or the actual product is available? I care about the latter, not the former.

You can preorder on BRS.

Reef keeping is life!

Yes, I know; however, preorder is not the same as available.

So when can we buy individual parts? I personally have no use for 1/2". I can understand the FMK being made available to industry types for review with multiple sizes. But I'd expect a lot of people will not be wanting the exact combination of sizes sold in the kit.

Thanks!

@TerenceF can the flow monitors be placed under water?

@TerenceF can the flow monitors be placed under water?No, they are not. They are splash-tolerant, but not waterproof.

Well that changes a few things I was hoping to do.

Thanks

Anyone know how many different FMM Accessories will plug into one FMM module? I haven't seen any metrics. For example, if I wanted to replace 9 existing float switches with the new Optical Level Sensors, how many FMMs would I need?

There are 4 ports on the FMM that the optical sensor could connect to, so you would need 3 FMM modules

That's an issue I'm running into, I would LOVE to replace all my float switches with optical switches but $50 each ($25 per sensor, $25 per port) is a tough ask. I'll likely just replace the critical sensors with optical and leave the rest.

Most of the pictures I have seen show the flow sensors mounted vertically. Is this required, preferred or just coincidental?

Preferred, less possibility of an air bubble getting trapped in the sensor itself.
