Only kidding This is my build thread for my new drip system I installed last night. I will be dripping 1GPH , total cost for build was about $80.00 Below is all of the parts except for the filter housing which I had already mounted to the wall; and the pressure regulator I forgot to buy at the time of the picture.
3 Stage Chloramine
filter kit 48.00
25PSI Pressure regulator 9.00
4X .5GP Drip Emitters 4.00

Lucky I already had the houses water line plumbed to my tank, I used this for my semi automatic water change system; described in another post. I decided to leave this system in place, in case I needed to do an large water change for some reason. 100_1616.jpg
The 3 stage filter is a "1 micron sediment filter" and Stage 2 & 3 Chloramine filter. I left the two horizontal DI containers in place, to add additional filtration, such as crushed coral "Buffering"; or an ammonia removal agent. 100_1617.jpg
Here is the Over flow from the sump, I have this set at about 50% of the sumps capacity. This should give me enough water during a power outage, to restart the pump with out it running dry. I have not done a test run yet to see what exactly happens during a outage, but thats planned for this weekend. However I have also installed a ball valve so that if I am home during the power outage I can kept it from draining. 100_1618.jpg
This is an overview of the Tank's plumbing, 2" drain to the sump, 1" tank drain for large water changes; and the drain for the drip system. 100_1619.jpg
The above drain lines above all drain to this floor drain along with my washing machine. 100_1621.jpg
Thanks for watching.
