Now, I don't consider myself a weakling by any means, but I'll be looking forward to 30g waterchanges = 264 lbs... so lifting that much water is out of the question... pump in the bucket works much better I'm thinking.
I should also point out that this is for pure freshwater
... I forgot to take into account the dissolved salts in the water, bringing the total to around 11 lbs per gallon
