It is 1 of the suspension wire and the 2.the power.
Each 60-min.Sonnenauf. bzw.Untergangssimulation by GHL ProfiLux II.
7. clock is the sun and from 21.00 clock unter.Der dimming from 1% to 95% and 95% to 1% will take about 1 hour.
Per GHL Profilux is noon "the sun" in 15% runtergeregelt and about 180 min. Long cloud / rain simulated dhin 30min from 95% to 15% that remains ca.120min and then again dimmed to 100% 30min long.
From 21.55 clock the LED moonlight ProfiLuxMoon DB is the GHL the moon phase simulation to switch.
Depending on the phase of the moon is the pool lit up at night with "Voll.-half or New Moon" and conjures up great effects in the basin.
Is filtered by 6 chamber filter tank in the basement below. Dimensions of FB 150x50x50.
1 chamber of the dirt collector with 2 inlets and 2 sequences. Depending on an AB and feed the emergency backups.
2-5 chamber with a total of 200 l foam cubes 50x50mm in PPI 20 gefüllt.Kammer 2-4 are using 50mm Ausströmerkugel additionally ventilated (in chamber 2 & 4 in counterflow principle) which the filter bacteria brings extra oxygen.
6 chamber is the clear water chamber with current in-testing AquaForte Forza ECO 8000. This pump can be controlled 3-8 thousand liter capacity and at 13-75 watts power consumption.
the pump is currently running at 80% ie ca.63 Watts to 1600l / h back to promote in the basin.
About the FB is via a bypass 30 watt UV clarifier installed DeBary traversed with about 500l / h.
Other equipment:
DeBary UV clarifier 30 watts running 24 hours a day and the UV tube is exchanged in the annual rhythm.
A Tunze Nano Stream 6055 for the additional flow in the basin.
This is set by Tunze Controller on pulsing 1000-4500 l / h (I'll try if all fish are used).
