Hiya I just recently got fed up with water changes .. So I bought the faucet pump 4 foot 1/2 clear hose and those quick connect hose fittings with valve. I have put a snap fitting so I can use my Fav gravel vac tube as well. It works great but I don't want to re fill water directly into my tanks.So I'm thinking a 10 gal holding bucket for water treatment and a powerhead with to refill.
Now here is a thought what if bought a fertilizer sprayer instead.They hook to your hose and can be set to release a metered dose. I found one whose lowest dose is 2ml per litre.or approx 7ml per gal. You would have dilute most water conditioners to use do this though.
I figured out that for instance aquaplus 5mls per 10 gallons.
So if you dilute it 14 parts water to 1 part Aquaplus You could set the mixer to 2ml/litre or (7.56 ml 10 gallons).
Too complicated? but it would eliminate water refill hassles and your water would be treated...
