Default Re: Automatic water change system design DIY

True, true, but my tanks are in the basement and there are no drains that the water can flow down to, it must be pumped up and out of the house. If my tanks were on a top floor I would eliminate the collection bucket and a lot of the other stuff I have. Also drilling tanks is somewhat risky and somewhat limits their aquascapableness (tongue twister!).

Its funny you should mention the fert system, whenever I muster up the effort I'll get around to hooking up the peristaltic pumps and digital second timers I bought to the system. I'll post pics of that too when I finish it.

Please post pics of your system whenever you finish it!
