someone must make a soild brass type with a fine control mech right?
You should also be able to find these at your LFS
, just remember the brass air valve will eventually corrode being around the SW
, you may have to replace it often. You should, imo
, keep looking for a plastic one, there are some that are pitiful, but I've run across several that did a fine job and worked for years.
what do you guys and girls use to replenish water due to evaporation? i currently use an 18oz glass from the kitchen ... there must be a device like the ones used for hamsters water bottles to achieve this automatically??
I use an IV style doser to replace evap at night with Kalk
, during the day (most of the time I have to replenish twice a day; small tank) I just use a gallon water jug filled with RO
water. An auto-topoff can be made fairly easily with a float valve and a resevoir (either the res is higher than the sump/tank, or you use a powerhead in conjuntion with the float valve). Look at www.ozreef.org
for some DIY
plans on auto-topoff systems.
