hiya guys, today im gonna put into paper more or less the list of what i need to create something that i been wanting to create and as of yet i still need to convince the wife that it's OK...lol
ok let me say here how im set up then what im trying to acomplish
my tank its 100gal high, its on a normal stand, underneath i have a trigger sump, there is about 4 foot of space on each side before you reach the wall
now on the left wall its outside, so nothing been done here. on the right side wall there its a small bathroom about 5 foot wide till the other wall On the otherside its my laundry room, i figure from faucet there to tank its about 15-20 feet.
now comes the goodies.
sooner or later im gonna have to get a RO/DI witch i would like to install it to the line in the laundry room that its used for the washer
now i think THAT on it self it shouldnt be to hard just split the cold line one for washer the other for the RO, done, the hard part its gonna come trying to add the rest of my plan.
what i wanna acomplish :
i want somewhat of an automated or semi-automated top off and water change system to go from Laundry room to sump
what i had plan in my head :
2 trash cans one for salt water and another for fresh water the RO will of course have a line to the fresh AND salt buckets (trash cans)
i will have a small pump in the fresh water to pump water to the salt one when the need to do water changes arrive
i will drill a big enough hole in to the 2 walls and everything that its in between to put in a pcv pipe that will extend from laundry to sump
now thats all i got so far.
since im removing my current mag24 as a return pump in my tank , i was thinking of using this one to pump water either salt or fresh to the sump from the laundry (If it has enough power to do so)
now i was gonna add an auto top off to the sump and here is where i will run into issues.
i dunno what else to do to finish this product on my mind,, i was thinking of buying a genesis system to do the ATO and water change for me. but they assume that ur sump will be RIGHT there not 15-20 feet away,, i can still buy the system... it would be much easier, but how can i rig it to extend all the piping,and the sensors etc etc...sigh fustrating,,,lol
let me know if you guys have any ideas or if u have it done,
this its the one i was thinking on getting sooner or later
pls advice.. getting burn out doing water changes and top offs
