Well it is done now so i can't change things around easily at this point. You may be right though. I don't know if many pods
really end up getting sucked out by the skimmer. I will have to check and if I am losing many i can always put a sponge over the skimmer intake and just be good about cleaning it during my PWCs.
I'm a little nervious about the auto top of tank i built. I'm really hoping it works according to plan and doesn't leak. The tank is completly sealed excpet for a fitting for filling, a fitting for output to the tank, and an air hole. Problem i might run into is that the air hole is fairly small and i am worried that filling is going to be a slow because it will be restriceted by the air hole. Suppose it wouldn't be to hard to get up in there with another air hole but i would rather avoid it. I finished all the plumbing yesterday and am hoping to start filling/testing today after work. Keep your fingers crossed for no leaks.
