I am setting up my new 125 inwall. I am thinking about setting up a system to do water changes. let me know what you think?
I am going to drill a hole in the ceiling and put a 1/2 in pipe in the attic going to the the outside of the house. I am going to leave it capped when not used. I will put the pipe from the ceiling so it is a couple of inches short from reaching the top of the water in the tank. when I have to do a water change I will attach a coupler and the submersible pump to the line. I will very the length of the pipe attached to the coupler as to how much water I need to change. fire the pump up and in minutes the water is out of the tank.
I also want to add a hose from my RO system that is under my sink in the kitchen. I am going to add the hose to go throught the cabinets out to the garage and up into the attic down into the fish tank room. There I will have a container with a hole drilled out on the top that the hose from the RO will be sealed into the top. I will drill a hole in the bottom of that container with a valve on it that I can attach a hose to so it can just sit in the sump.
After the pump removes the water from the tank I will just open the valve in the container to replenish fresh salt water. (the container will have to have a top that I can get into so I can add the saltwater. also I will have a small powerhead in that tank to circulate the water in the container.
What do you think will this work will I run into any problems that I am unaware of?
I hope this was easy to read and understand.
