    so I just ordered a autoaqua awc auto water changer from bulk reef supply. I’m totally excited about this equipment. For the water change / ato storage I picked up a 55 gallon tank on a dollar per gallon sale from pet supplies plus. Going to the glass place to get a piece cut for a divider to install to split the tank. I use about 1.5 gallon per day top off water and I’m planning on 2 gallon per day water change ( just over 2%) I should get about 9 days worth of storage with this setup. Has anyone tried out this equipment yet? Pros/cons? I’m currently manually adding top off water and yes I mix in buckets and manually do the water change thing as well, so going automatic is is going to be rainbows and unicorns in my eyes.

    In for info. I have been looking at this and would love some insight. I have the room and already have the brutes I can use. I am doing manual 1 gal/day top off now like you are and this would be perfect for both

    For sure I just ordered it today so I should see a Wednesday delivery. I’ll post pics once I get it installed. As long as it works as advertised this will turn my daily maintenance into weekly.

    So I received my equipment today and got it all hooked up. The drain is going into a bucked at the moment, this weekend I will take it to outside. So far I love this thing. I had to read the directions 4 times before I understood it all but I believe I have it set up. I guess I’ll find out in the morning if the top off is working properly and tomorro night if the water change is. I did a manual water change and it went great. Exactly what I expected. Here’s some pics of the install.
