Mine is all manual, since the vertical segment holds about 10 gals. So I just displace the air by sucking it out, that had to be done once and then its done with. Im pretty sure it would also work for 70 litres, but if you want something fancier, you would need a vacum pump and in the best scenario have the vertical segment drilled at the top.

What do you mean by holding the vacuum? Once the air is displaced nothing has to be done. Just have to make sure that the entrance where the pump is conected is air tight, so air doesnt go back in.
