I'll get another 300w then. Thanks.

Anyway, when you do pwc how do you warm up your water before putting it in the tank? Our faucet with hot and cold is not designed to connect a hose. So, I use the line for watering plants and it's only cold water. So what I do is put it in a big container, add PRIME, then boiling water to bring up the temp to at least close to the remaining water in the tank. Is pouring the hot water have any effect with the PRIME? thanks.

I used to make my water this way as well.. I'd put just cold water in a large can then add my water conditioner. Let it sit over night with a circulation pump running and add a junky heater to it the next day to get it to temp..

I've since changed out to a system that hooks to my faucet and cannot ever think about going back..

None of the faucets in the house have unscrewable aerators? I had to get an extra adapter because the stock stuff didn't fit...

Unscrewable aerators? Do you use a python? Where can you buy an attachment for that to connect it to your faucet? The threads on the hose and the faucet are different.

This is the aerator..

Most bathroom faucets should have one that will unscrew.. That is where the python goes on..

I see. We a lot of that then. Hehe. I didn't know that it is called aerator. I was thinking of the air pump aerator.

Anyway, does the python comes with the attachment? Or you have to buy it separately? Where?

It looks like the python is designed to be attached to the aerator.

The python comes with an adapter that screws in where the aerator screws in to the faucet..
