Do automatic water chagers have a valve that you turn when you want to do a water change? Was just wondering because if you could switch the valve, could you add declorintaer derectly in the tank to declorintate the tape water?

Due to a recent question about the design of an overflow and why I changed the upturned pipe in the main tank to face down I thought I'd include the following diagram to better explain why this will not create a siphon and drain the tank.



A thorough explanation of the above diagram can be found here:https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...tml#post726706
