okay, now do these auto top-offs work well? I wish I had pluming behind my tank that I could tap into. I run a 15ft. R/O water tube from under my bathroom sink(where I installed my RO
unit) to my room to do the topoffs. I was thinking about an auto topoff unit, but what happens if it malfunctions and never turns off. Flood right? I'd like to minimize my chances of a flood.
Also, do have an auto top off system, I'd have do dig under my carpet to hide the tubing. If it leaks somewhere, I won't even be able to see it until it's too late. Am I missing something? Seems like a lot of work and hassle and possible disasters. I guess I'm stuck with the daily topoffs. No biggie, I'll just get used to it
Oh yeah, one last thing. Before I converted my 90gal from FW
, I didn't have to topoff a thing. I would only do biweekly water changes and this would be enough. Now I know that salinity is not an issue for FW
, but I was referring to the rate of evaporation. Does the SW
evaporate quicker than FW
, or is it the new lighting required by reef systems that causes the evaporation?
