Please check the shipping address listed in your paypal transaction as you check out! If that address is wrong contact me ASAP since I pack and ship orders quickly and I do it based on the address paypal gives me. I prefer you have a confirmed paypal address since unconfirmed addresses mean I need to confirm the shipping address with you (this takes time and can delay shipping.) If you get an e-mail from me with a subject like Re: Payment received from your e-mail@your it is me trying to confirm something about your order before I can ship, please open it and respond if you want your order shipped asap. I do not earn money on the shipping. The paypal calculator is not very flexible so if it over charges you for shipping, I will refund the difference. There is a place on paypal where you can add instructions about shipping (for instance if the shipping address is a business address according to UPS/Fed Ex it might allow me to save you money on shipping for certain products if I know about it, otherwise I have to assume residential shipping. If you add your phone number there I can use your phone number if I ship via Fed Ex for certain products and they can call you if there is an issue with delivery.) If Paypal doesn't charge you for shipping, it is probably because you are in another country or someplace I don't normally ship to, I will be contacting you about it since I will need to find out the shipping costs to your location and send you an invoice for the shipping or refund your order if I can not ship to you or if you don't want to pay the shipping. I normally Sell in the USA but have occasionally shipped packages internationally. Plants and Fish I only sell in Florida at this time and I am not set up to ship fish yet.

Return and Refund Policy

I try very hard to quickly answer questions about products before the sale. If you are uncertain about a product please ask, I want to make sure that what you buy is what you need and what will actually work for you. If you buy a product and change your mind about it later and want to return it, I will have to charge a re-stocking fee and I can only accept returns on unused items. I can only make refunds for 60 days after the purchase through paypal. I do not refund the shipping or pay return shipping unless the reason for the return is on my end. Please contact me for instructions before returning anything. If I'm not expecting something to come back, I won't know what to do with it if it actually makes it to me. Some packages are shipped direct from the manufacturer and simply mailing something back to them won't get you a refund. If there is a problem with a product, please contact me so we can work something out. Some items are covered by warranty.

    Hey TC
    Will the 180 allow me to control the diverter valve? Do es it also allow for back up pump/air pump turn on? And lastly do you carry the sensors for temp PH etc?

    • TCLynx

      The 180 can be modified to control a diversion valve but it won’t do it right out of the box and it does require an extra power supply since the diversion valves are 24 volt AC and the 180 is really only set up to to 110/120 VAC or DC power.

      No I don’t believe it is designed to turn on backup pumps. Now the relays in the controller could probably be wired for such but again that is not how the controller is set up normally.

      I don’t have any of the sensors but I can ask about them if you like.

      • Frank Brent

        Please ask about the sensors. I know the 180 can have a relay board. Does this give it 2 or 4 relay outputs total?

        • TCLynx

          I’m gonna see if I can get Rob (the guy who developed these controllers) to come answer questions direction instead of us playing telephone.

  • Hi Frank. The timer probably could run a diversion valve but I would need to know what the model is to verify it. This unit can be set up to have “dry” relays. Normally, if you have it running on 120VAC, that power would also go to the relays. However, you can disconnect that line and run your own secondary power into the unit and run that through the relays.

    It really isn’t designed to be used as a backup system. I would say if you want a backup pump, to just get a UPS and run it on that.

    The only sensor we design for this unit was for temperature. This unit was really intended to be a timer, and not a full controller. It works great as a thermostat so you can turn on/off a fan. You could connect your own sensors into it providing they output 0-5VDC. The unit is able to read this information and show a value from 0-1023….but there is no conversion to an actual measurement. (I don’t know of anyone that has actually connected their own sensors except for myself!)

    The units all have 2 relays in them which can be run as independent timers, or in sequencing mode so that one relay goes through it’s cycle, then the next one. You can also set it up so that one relay is working as a timer and another as a thermostat (or both relays as a thermostat)

    If you just need a timer, you can go with the IX-100 or IX-150. I would recommend the 150 since it has a display and is FAR easier to program. If you are planning on using a sensor the IX-180 is the only one that supports that.

    hope that helps!
