BoykinsNDucks Posted July 9, 2021 Share Posted July 9, 2021 I'm going back and forth on two different water change systems and how to automate them. My tap water has chloramines. Which adds an additional layer of expense (carbon block filters) and uncertainty. I'm not sure how long the carbon block filters will last and there is no warning system for if it has been used up. What if I simply forget to change them out. Am I making a big deal over nothing? So with that component added in. I am wondering if it would be easier and cheaper to automate the filling of a water storage tank and adding an auto doser to drop in prime/safe. And then use a pump to deliver water to the aquariums. Another pro to this setup is I could probably do without a hot water heater out...as the water could come up to temp in the storage container since I will heat the room. I'll be dealing with about 20 aquariums totaling 1,000 gallons. Thoughts? And as a monkey wrench. The property has an old well. I could investigate getting the well running, but it would cost a pretty penny. I'd estimate 2-3,000 by the time I bought equipment and had water lines trenched up to my shop (400-500' or so). 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
