I have to add a half gallon every day and I do not need a float to tell me that. If I let the ph
run for a minute every day, wouldn't it accomplish the same thing? Any thoughts?[/i]
I understand your thinking. I setup a homemade top off system first, a drip syphon. I was inconsistant but kinda worked. More of a pain in the neck though. You could setup a timer for 1 min if you used a small ph
, it would work well i think. one benefit about the float is it will keep the SG
consistant. not a big issue on a large tank, but may be on a smaller one, otherwise, i would think it'd work fine.
