Ca Reactor set up help

I have a MRC C1 with out the probe holder so I am not sure where to put the probe (Keep it clean). I thought about setting up a container to catch the effluent with the probe and then let the effluent drip from that into the sump. I just can't figure out where else to put it.

Thanks

That is a good idea with the drip cup.. Also MRC can install a probe holder in a jiffy for like $20

Rawn, you spoiled the fun with the "keep it clean" requirement. Check Marc Levinson's site under his first CA set-up. He did exactly what you are talking about; used a red plastic cup to catch the effluent and had the probe in there. That's really the best solution for you without a probe holder (in my opinion). I can't find the link right now, but I'll post it when I find it.

Yeah just drip it into a cup, this way the effluent will raise in pH too before getting into your tank.
