Nose-Eye-PPM TEST
#1
I have developed a little test to make sure that my water is clean:

1.  Nose Test: I have found that the first thing I notice when something has gone wrong is that "the smell" comes back.  When you open the tank, the best smell is nothing.  If you pass this test, then check 1/3 off the list.

2.  Eye Test: Take a look around the tank.  If there wasn't any off odor, then there probably won't be anything floating around, but it is good to still check.  If you check the scum line, under the bag, and on the surface with a flashlight without seeing anything funky, then check 2/3 off the list.  

3.  PPM Test:  Even if you pass 1 and 2, this does not mean that your H202 levels are where they need to be, and you could have seemingly clear water that is on the verge of going bad.  I have strips that read 0-100, so I try to keep my water at least above 50, usually closer to (but not above) 100.  You eventually get a feel for this.  If 1, 2, & 3 are all good, then just keep on doing what you're doing.  

If you do end up with dirty water, you will likely not be able to check 1, 2, or 3 off the list.  If it's only the H202 that dropped without 1 or 2, then you just need to address that. It's time to skim and get real aggressive with the H202 if you have biofilm floating around.  In this case, do not try to add a little H202 at a time, as you have to put a lot of it in in to really "shock" the water.  If you add a little bit at a time, you will get an initial rise that will not be enough to clean the tank and likely fall to 0-10ppm within 24 hours.  Once this happens, whatever is colonizing in your tank will continue to do so.  

Of course, there are the other steps like skimming, checking Ph and Ak, scrubbing the scum line, cleaning the filter bag, maintaining water levels, checking gravity, and wiping down the ceiling walls.  Basically it's a lot of work, but it is better to make this part of your routine than getting a dirty tank.  If you're not interested in doing these things, then I would not recommend buying a ZenFloat tent.

Hello MikeB,

Thank you for posting this guide. It is great to see you developing a feel for your tent/water and being able to use this information to properly maintain your float tent. I will relay the guide back to the team and see if we can implement anything to our guides.

Thanks,

-Mason
