Setting up a Vectra L1

Hi there, I canít seem to find the info Iím after, Iím setting my L1 up, do I set up the pump to 100% via ecotech live then calibrate to suit my aquarium, or set it up to the correct levels via eco live then calibrate it to 100% output? Or something else? Many thanks

When I got my Vectras, I plumbed them in, then plugged them in, set the flow program, and turned the dial on the controller to the speed I wanted them to operate at. Nothing else.

Hi Mfinn, thanks for the reply, i want to use the feed function without having to turn the pump off, so need to calibrate it, plus i think its a useful feature!

I did a google search and found a youtube video on calibrating a Vectra.
Give that a try.
