My calcium reactor didn't have a spot for a ph probe and I wanted a secondary chamber for media so this is my solution

Still have to drill and tap holes for 1/4" jg fittings and cut the bottom to match the top

Hey Tyler, could you PM me with a cost/price please. I think I would rather that than a cup in the sump.
Happy New Year.

For what I'd have to charge it wouldn't be worth it unless I made a few dozen and I can't see them being a huge seller

Also I still have a few changes to make on it

Understood Tyler, care to share your list on this project ? I would like to try also. I would rather the ph probe inside the reactor, rather than in a cup in the sump.

Oh sorry, I meant just the part where the ph probe goes into the reactor/chamber. the bulkhead type fitting ? I'd like to drill a hole on top of the reactor for the ph probe, or am I understanding it wrong ?

You can also buy a 'probe holder' at Home Depot or any hardware store that sells electrical. http://www.homedepot.ca/product/pvc-threaded-strain-relief-connector-150-1-2-inch/954713
