    Battery Backup Items

    What do you have on battery back up? I have a new EB8 that I want to hook up and i think it's time to plan for battery back up and get everything sorted out on each EB8.
    I'm thinking power heads in the tank and the return pump at a minimum. the heaters will drain the battery to quickly. can i just have 2 outlets to be on during a power outage?

    What I do is return pump and powerhead and dimmed lights for 1 minute. If the outage lasts longer than that, pumps slow to minimum intensity and everything else shuts off.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.
