What do you think of adding calculators to the site?

Something like electricity usage and water costs...

I've thrown together a quick page that calculates both and can use manually entered rates for both kwh and H2O gallon.

If the mods/admins would like to add it, I can supply my code and can do with as they want. Or I can host a page on one of my servers for CFT members to use.

Attached is a screen shot.

I hope my wife doesn't see these numbers (my estimate is in the pic)...:eek:




Edit: Added a live link for testing--> here.

Your water rate is higher than I pay for gas ;)

OK, seriously I like the idea. A couple of questions, can you add more options/fields? Here are some things I'd like to see added:

Electricity Calculator:

Calcium Reactor Pump
Phosban Reactor Pump
ATO Pump
Miscelanious 1 (ATO, auto feeder, etc.)
Miscelanious 2 (Fuge Light)
Miscelanious 3 (something I’m forgetting)

Water Calculator:

If you’re using an RO/DI unit you’d need to figure in your waste water as well, say it takes 5 gallons of water to make 1 gallon of good water that would be a factor.

Also if you could add something for top off water.
