    Switch box is all done. Not perfect, but I think it turned out good.

    Looks good! Do you have a use in mind for all of the switches yet?
    Don't look here for a comment.

    Not all, but most. I plan to use them on the breakout boxes for equipment that I want to shutdown. I know I could do it on fusion or make virtual outlets but I don't want to mess with that when in the middle of doing something and I want to shutoff my ato, skimmer, pump, ect. I will definitely make one of them a maintenance switch so it will turn off everything I want to do a WC so it doesn't need to be done individually. I'm going to be brand new to the Apex so it will be an adventure at first figuring it all out!

    Made some more progress today. Plumbing is officially 100% done now. I got all the drains cut and drilled and the return is done now too.




    I also got started on wiring up the apex today as well, I have about half of it done.

    I kinda hate your updates because you set the standard too high!

    Thanks Joe, I wish I didn't have to set them so high, maybe it wouldn't take me 2 years! I'm just implementing things I have learned over the years, you know how it is. It's easier to do it now than fix it later.

    Congrats man! With all the work you've put into this, getting water in the tank has to feel great!

    Lost power for 5 hrs today so I spent most of the day on generator and didn't get much done. I was hoping to have it totally running today, but it looks like it will be this weekend now.

    That sucks. We only had a power hit earlier this morning. Our lights have been flickering all day though.

    I'm surprised you weren't out storm chasing.

    Well the frag tank & sump are full and the tank is 1/3 full. Another 200 gallons and I think we are there. I tested the return plumbing system and I don't see any issues so that's good! The pump seems to be plenty and my drains work sooper sweet as well so I'm stoked! Here a couple random photos

    Hey Kirby, are you into storm chasing? I give some serious thought to doing that for a year or so after I came back from Trashcanistan. I really wanted to do some storm photography.

    Yes sir, love it. I haven't been able to go much the last couple of years though. Me and a buddy started doing it several years ago. Here is some random eye candy for you!

    48x24x16 it's 80 gallons I believe.
