on the plus side the mist gives you a good idea on the flow patterns. it's a very fine mist the bubbles are so small they don't reach the surface. I have a much lower bubble rate as a result. I do have the working pressure set quite high to get the bubbles to come through, about 1.6 bar. I had a trouble getting a stable rate to start with but I reconnected all the lines to the solenoid, bubble counter and the atomiser and it has been fine for a couple of weeks.
don't look at the dirty pipes... i'll do them next water change (honestly)
Sorry, I couldn't test my water hardness . Test kits were consigned to the dustbin about 9 months agochump54 said:thanks Chris, thats good to know, do you know how hard it was?
