Juts keep extra water available cause you never know. I keep a full 32g of ro
water on my porch and an extra 4 5g jugs inside in case of a major issue where you might want to do a 50% pwc
Any pump would do for the pumping method, I have a 800gph rio I use and about 20ft of 3/4 inch tubing. Ended up costing me over $60 between the pump and the hosing from home depot. But I do have it in case of a large water change. Like if a anameone dies and nukes the tank or some other hazard occurs.
Also you should have about 15g of ro
water available for evaporation purposes, I go through almost a gallon a day adding water. I am trying to get it together enough to set up an ATO for this purpose but havent gotten there yet. LOL
