I have a RO
filter that pumps water continuously into a storage container I have in my garage.
Currently I go in there dunk a bucket then haul it over to my tank.
I want to try to find an easier hose type thing that I can hook my pump to, or get some form of cheap suction pump that will allow me to pull water from that storage bin and fill my refugium.
Sorry, I thought you were looking forsomething to drain the tank...

Darn, you beat me to it.
A pump with a hose. If you can use the pump at the aquarium and use it to suck water from the storage bin it could be a pretty easy one-man job. Depending on the distance, if the hose is empty it could overheat the pump before getting water through it. If you use the pump at the storage unit you would need to have a way to monitor the tank while the pump worked. Two people working together could make it easy that way. Sorry, I'm rambling. Been a loooong day already.
