    They keep moving back the delivery. I gave up and am building my own from PVC sheet and controlling a much more powerful motor with a cnc controller which will give me umlimited ability to program agitation. It will accept my lifts amd there will be a dual heater system, a pig warmer underneath the whole unit and a submersible heater in the reservoir. I have an easily obtainable/replaceable inexpensive aquarium pump which will move more water than the Jobo pump..About $600.00 finished for the whole unit..

    Evan,

    Is this just a project for you or do you plan to build, sell and service these for all of us?

    As i recall, there are at least three distinct threads on APUG discussing folks how set off to build their own processor to accept Jobo tanks (or others), with cheap\commercially available hardware. None have yet to show any progress (some are several years old).

    In any case i think its a great idea and the design prospect sounds promissing - good luck! i am looking forward to seeing such a thing become a reality.
    If you ever make another one, or mass produce them i will be your first customer.

    On another note - though the new CPP3 will have pretty much endless speed and heat control (choose 1 of 100 settings), why wait for something that is as you say being pushed back, when late SN CPP2 are available right now, not to mention brand new CPP2 which are also readily available (4 week lead time, special order)? You might not be saving alot of $$$ going that route, but you will have it right now...

    The aquarium pump is a good alternative. I replaced two failing pumps ($165 each) in my minilab printer with $30 aquarium pumps and they did a great job.

    Way better than the Jobo pump. I'm pumping the water from the opposite end, no circuit boards sitting above the water. I'll be using it in a week.

    There is a difference between a importer-distributor and a dealer.
