I really dont mind me doing this, because I know how he feels about it overflowing. I would be scared too. In the basment, if it overflows, it wont to anything to the house. So I am happy about that. Plus more people will be able to see it and enjoy it.
Oh, my mistake. I had the impression that you were going to carry the rubbermaid downstairs, then use the pump to pump back the water into the tank. What was I thinking. I apologize for that.

Also, I didn't mean to sound as though I am critizing your parents just for the fun of it. I was more thinking of empathizing with you and saying that to your defense. I apologize. I meant well. It looks like it is a good idea to bring the tank downstairs. In that way, like you said, there are less worries.

Good luck on the move however you end up doing it. You definitely need a company or two to help you out. Hope all goes well!

DON'T USE THE HOSE UNLESS YOU KNOW IT'S SAFE!

Consumer Reports did a test a few years ago and found:
"it’s OK to drink from a hose only if it’s labeled safe or if you flush it first. Otherwise, the water standing inside may contain worrisome amounts of lead and other chemicals that leach from the hose itself. Many hoses are made of polyvinyl chloride, which uses lead as a stabilizer. . ."

Oh crap I already used my hose to trasport the water. It is running now and has 2 Chromis, and 4 Damsels. They have been fine. I has been running for 1 day.
