Automatic Water Changer: Part 4

Posted 01/01/2012 at 10:12 PM by Aaarrrggg

Next up was getting the water from the 2 tanks to the aquarium. Both the SW and RO tanks have tubing inside that extends to the bottom.

The tubing comes out the back of the tops of both tanks and through a hole in the wall

Grim found some electrical wire hiding stuff at Lowes that worked perfectly to hide the colored tubing. (It even has sticky back plastic backing for easy installation!)

Through another wall... (the black line you can see is for waste water; more on that later)

Nearly there! (Aquarium on left)
