    I bought one of those wirelss controllers with key fobs and when it arrived the diagram shows that the remote box should be wired between the battery and the pump, thus allowing me to control the flow and turn the pump on and off. I e-mailed the company and explained that my system, like most others, sees the logic controller wired to the battery and then from the controller all other components are wired. Therefore battery to liquid logic/ varistream, or whatever controller you use, then from that to pump(s) auxillary battery if you have one, tds readings if built in and so on.
    my question to the supplier was where dies their wirelss controller go as there is no direct link from the battery to the pump. They told me to bypass my Liquid Logic controller but I explained this was not possible as theier controller only controlled flow and not calibration etc.
    To my surprise they had no other answer.
    Does anyone of you clever people have the answer.
    Do I cut the wires from my LL controller then between that and the pump add the wireless controller? If so assume the original LL controller would overide the wireless controller.

    Please help, any ideas

    hey essex boy, see you use the same logo as i do lol

    is it like this? if it is, im affraid you have wasted your money, these are designed for dimming 12v led lights only and cost about £4 on ebay. they arent water proof. the wireless range is only a few meters.

    if its not like this if you could email me details of it and maybe pictures of your set up and the controller i might be able to help better.

    haHa, I've been conned. It's exactly like the one yu show but with a crappy orange pure flow sticker over it. I bought it from eBay member purecleansolutionsuk and paid 25 pounds. Live and learn!

    Do you have any info once to buy. I have a grippaMax 400 2 person set up with liquid logic controller that does everything ( except remote control).

    Appreciate your help.

    I think gardiners have the one shot remote on their website? Probably a lot more expensive..
