I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

When you put it in the garage just elevate your whole trash can up on cement blocks so that you can get a gas can or whatever you use to move your water around lower than it. I just put a clear hose on the spiggot with a house clamp. I have six 5 gallon gas cans that I use to transport water.


spiggot drilld into the lower side of can


30 gallon food grade trash can


all plastic float valve

How do you seal it to make sure it doesn't leak? Can you just buy a plastic spigot at lowes or home depot?

The spiggot and float valve come with rubber washers.

What are you using it on? Connecting your faucet u to the rodi? I just used the water tap that came with my rodi. It judt punctured a small hole into your water line undet your sink and attaches that way. I have you to have an issue with mine. More than likely you can find that same party at a plumbing supplier that specializes in plumbing supplies.
