Water changes

Hi all,

I use a hose pipe (specifically for the aquariums) with a spray end I use for water changes. The tap water goes through three filters. Foam, charcoal & sponge that removes chlorine etc. It then goes via an electric water heater that can be set between 30c & 55c or just normal cold water temperature if I choose to turn it off.

Are there any problems that may occur from this setup? I've not had any issues for over a year but I've not really used the water heater until now as the outside temperature is dropping.

I was worried the warmer water in the hose could cause a nitrite bloom inside the hose or something.

Thanks

Fei

No. It sounds like a good system I would add that fish are pretty sensitive to sudden temperature changes so youíd want to try to match the temps as closely as possible.

Thanks. I figured the 30c for fish at 25c was the better choice than just cold water from the tap.

Thanks for the reply.
