I've heard HOBs should be cleaned weekly or they start to become nitrate factories.

Distilled is what you want. Im not sure Spring water has any RODI in its processing. In my grocery stores, distilled is usually about a buck a gallon. The big dispensers where you bring your own containers are usually about 25 cents a gallon. They are outside most of my local gas stations and most grocery stores. That is what I use and I've had minimal algae. I try to get my water close to when they have been serviced.

I'm not sure. Maybe someone else can pitch in here? I would think it could not be any worse than tap, but I'm not sure how much better.

Looks ok, anythings better than tap, if your building your own sump try to design in a turf scrubber,it's inexpensive and the one I put in is really helping clean up my tank

Well for my sump I'm using a DIY overflow 1inch PVC with a maxijet 1200 as my return it's going to be 10 gallons with a bubble trap at the beginning. I put plans up of it on one of my threads if you could go scheck it out bc no one did. Thanks
