Aquarium Professionals Group Aquarium Monitoring
Peace of Mind
With aquariums, sometimes things go wrong,
especially with systems that have been set up for a few years. Pumps, chillers
or other mechanicals can fail, one or more fish can suddenly die for one or more
reasons. When you're away, a failed pump or other device can cause catastrophe.
Fish dying in the tank can begin to rot, polluting the water. If you're away on
vacation or a business trip when this happens, there's little you can do. We
have the answer!
If you have a large aquarium housing
expensive fish and corals, you probably have thousands if not tens of thousands
of dollars invested in your aquarium. If you're frequently out of
town and don't have someone who can monitor your aquarium when you go away, or
you just want more peace of mind, you
may want to consider using Aquarium Professionals Group's remote monitoring
How It Works
A computer specifically designed for
aquariums is installed on your aquarium mechanical system. This computer at
minimum can monitor aquarium pH, ORP (an important measure of overall water quality) and
temperature. If equipped with additional sensors, it can also monitor other
functions such as dissolved oxygen, low water level, power outages, pump, heater or chiller
failures and more.
The computer is connected to a dedicated, always-on Internet connection
(supplied by owner). Aquarium Professionals Group has servers with software which

anything go wrong, our technicians are automatically notified, 24/7 so they can
attend to the problem immediately. Some problems may even be solved by sending
commands to the computer monitoring your aquarium from our server, such as
raising ozone levels, turning on backup pumps or resetting light timers. We can also arrange to
have the software notify you of the problem via a phone
call, pager or email, with follow ups sent by our technicians so you're kept in
the loop. Contact us
This service is not for everyone. The computer system,
software and related equipment range in price from about $1,500.00 to
several thousand dollars plus installation labor. Total equipment costs
depend on what functions will be monitored. We also charge a monthly monitoring fee, billed to a
credit card kept on file.
In addition to the computer system installation, you'll need to install an always-on (DSL, cable), dedicated CAT5
Internet connection near your aquarium equipment. Your
Internet provider must make sure the Aquarium Professionals Group server has
access to your home network.
We also suggest you allow us some means to access your home, office or wherever your
aquarium is located in case no one is available to let us in when we receive an
