I just plugged my huge UPS in now and anticipating no power, thankfully this thing will run a vortech + heater for 48 hours easily.

Going to bump up this thread due to the heat expected later this week.

NOW is the time to read through this thread and get some ice water bottles/ideas ready in case you have an issue with your tank!

This is a quote from Masterswimmer I saw on another heat thread here:

Quote:
Remember to turn off your heater too. Most of us keep the heater in the sump and this is fine, but if you add ice to the sump, the temperature probe for the heater will detect a chill and possibly turn on the heater counteracting all the chilling you're trying to accomplish.
Excellent advice! Thanks Russ

Keep in mind Con Edison plans to go on strike 7/1 which may cause power issues. Be prepared for the worst.

How does everyone think about running power from your car? I have an SUV with a plug. It probably cant hold too much of a load but a powerhead or two should be no problem.

The issue with trying to do this is that if there is no power in the area, there are also no gas stations open, which means eventually you will have no car either, never ming how close the car would need to be to run the wire. Tough one for many of our urban reefers
