Other equipment:
Dennerle Duomat Digital, with 50 Watt and 250 Watt heating cables Schego heater thermostat of titanium pipe.
Due to the intensive water circulation heated water rises from the ground, up and produces a temperature balance of water and soil, with no cold spots.
Therefore, I have now decided for the heating cable.
Evening I let the temperature by 1 to 2 degrees lower.
For sterilization I use a UV Aquael internal filter, with Led UV diodes installed in the rotor chamber and a capacity of 1000 liters / hour.
