Lynker’s “MacGyver” Saves the Day!

Lynker’s aquarist, Michael “MacGyver” Caban, saves the day for the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries Mokupāpapa Discovery Center for Hawaiʻi’s Remote Coral Reefs. He was able to diagnose and repair an expensive reverse osmosis system that is used to make water for the Mokupāpapa aquarium. The system had been tripping breakers and he knew why. The Center was looking at a $300+ diagnosis from an electrician, if they could get one, or a $3500+ shipping (100lbs) for a new system. Michael was able to use a multimeter to diagnose the system and repair the malfunctioning part. Now the Discovery Center can once again generate the water they need for water changes in the aquarium, keeping their fish healthy.
