look into ATI Essentials. Similar concept, much less to buy and not as strict. I'm having decent results with LPS and softies less than a year in and I complete water changes only when I feel like it.

Have you switched over to their 2 part system? I am getting close to running out of the 3 part and haven't heard much about it.

Thanks for ur input. I read a lot about how they were leaking all over the place. I’m planning on running a 40 gallon breeder before my sump not only for my plans for the triton method. But also for tons of pods cause I love my green mandarin

I've been using Triton for the past 18-24 months. My tank has never looked better and LPS and SPS growth and health have been much better than my expectations. And no water changes except to top up salinity after the odd skimmer overflow.

I highly recommend it.
