    Default Turn off skimmer for an hour

    Hi

    I want my skimmer to stop from 22-23 everyday (because I’m feed the corals). Under process I configured the 22-23 shut down but I doesn’t work. What shut i choose under swifts modes (see pictures)

    Hi,

    You can set this up by using the Feed Pause feature.

    1. Go to the Feed pause settings page and select an unused FP
    2. Specify how long this FP should run for...in this case 60 minutes
    3. Select the Timer number that will be responsible for activating this FP, then SAVE settings
    4. Go to the selected timer function, press the Switch mode tab and set it to Event start
    5. Press the Schedule tab and set this "Event" to begin at 22:00, then specify the days to run this schedule, then press SAVE settings
    6. Go the Switch channels settings page, select the outlet that has the skimmer connected to it
    7. Set the function to Filter and select the feed pause number you chose in step 1, then SAVE settings

    The above steps will allow the skimmer to run and turn OFF for 1 hour at 22:00. At 23:00 the skimmer will turn back ON.
