Daniel Posted October 30, 2020 Share Posted October 30, 2020 @DavidR was asking in another thread about automated water changes. My water comes from a well into my utility room where I run it through an reverse osmosis (RO) system. The big pump (red circle) takes the water from the RO system and pumps it through PEX tubing embedded in the concrete slab for our house and pumps the water over and into my large aquarium in the living area. The large aquarium has an overflow standpipe that only lets the water get to the top of the aquarium before it goes down the pipe and out to the summer tubbing ponds. This is the automated part of the water change. The second part is less automated but only uses gravity. Once the water is in the big tank, it is 7 1/2 feet off the ground and will readily flow downhill to the aquariums in the fishroom. The picture below is of doing a water change on the green water tank this morning. The floors are concrete so spilling a little water isn't the end of the world. It is nice to not have to use buckets. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
