I am liking the maxjet idea. Using a gravel siphon to take water out of my tank is no problem because the tank is so high but getting it back in can be a bear. As soon as I add my sump I will be doing all water changes from there and I have been wondering what I would use to pump out the water. I think I just figured it out. I will use the same PH that I am using for mixing my salt.

I do this with my pump. Works like a charm. Especially last night as I was filling the 220 gal

Did it work for vacuuming up the water that was on the floor this morning???? (ducking because I suspect a shoe is headed my way).

There is a carpet cleaning service here in Atlanta that advertises "Empowered Water". They say they add a little salt to it and it does a better job of cleaning. Guess your's is very Empowered. LOL

I don't have anything in my refugium. I just kick up the dirt a little every time I check on my micro
