Q
I bought the 8.1 and came with the light sensor but it doesn't work, how can I get it to work?
I tried adjusting the lighting in the room and moving the sensor but still won't go into night mode

Make sure the sensor is clean and always remains dry. Also make sure to press the MODE/NIGHT button until the yellow LED "Night" lights up to activate the night mode. You may need to restart the pump after moving the sensor to get it to recognize the new location.

REVIEW
We had the Ecodrift 8.0 on our old tank and decided to stay with these because of the small size with strong water movement. The new controller does have a few less programs than the old one but the quality seems better with more power settings that can be run. It moves water really well in our tank...Read More
