Thanks to the early fully-automated system (powered by the Hub), you’ll be able to take the guesswork out of everything from water top-off to system filling to aeration to super oxygenation. It’s powered by an embedded Linux OS on a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor that makes use of data from 10 separate remote sensors.
