waste of electricity, yeah kinda but not really. it adds up to nothing compared to the other energy items in a home. an eddie. it will work. i made two for my aqua 300s. used my dremel to bore holes, got a brass rod and 1 1/2" vinyl tubing from home depot. cut the tube in half and ears with tunnels bored thru. don't drill to low on the filter housing though because water will jump the diverter piece you construct. not good if your tank's top is fully enclosed. depending on where you live, expect to get alot of hardwater deposit. but weekly cleaning will keep put it at bay.
