    Going to have to run a room heater for a short while to give all the tanks without heaters a small bump for the day.

    Happy with keeping it under the 500kwh per month, but I am seeing a consumption creep so will need to investigate why that is.

    Very cool .. I am kinda over redesigning things so just stuck with what is / was working for me ... KISS and all that.

    Having a look at the outside tank temps ...

    upload_2019-7-3_3-49-9.png

    Yesterday morning was the coldest that tank has been in a year ... 4.7 if we are in the same cycle things should start warming up.
