That's cool. You have a link to see some of you LED fixtures.
Sure. This is the build I made for my BioCube, but I've had many different tanks in the past and have always built my own LED lights.
My ATO $12 @ Home depot. Hooked it up directly to the ro/di and it sits in my sump. Been running with no issues for the last 4 - 5yrs. Even put one in my mix tank.
This is too funny. I honestly have never seen a toilet float used in this fashion.
Do you mind sharing how you hook up the RODI to the float valve? The ones in my house all hook up from underneath with a 1/2" or 3/4" hose. Just curious.
This is brilliant!
I Second that
Lol - yup MY redneck set up. Best part is your float is adjustable so you can set the perfect water hieght in the sump. Simple to hook up, you only need a plastic compression fitting for the size hose coming off your rodi which will screw onto the bottom of the float. Sold at HD for a couple of bucks. Egg crate was used to mount it
I love designing, modifying, repairing, improving & building just about anything.
This is AMAZING....... I'm speechless. Simple ingenuity that grabs my DIY-budget-building-soul, shakes it vigorously and asks "Why didn't you think of that!!!!?"
I like it, I like it alot
Two traits all GOOD solutions should have.
Hope your well ventilated or using a sealed battery. Some batteries give off a flammable gas while charging. If your unsure I’d be carful unplugging anything or plugging anything in lol
Can I see a tank shot of that build. I have the same tank and have been thinking about switching it from a planted tank to a reef and curious where u put the overflow and return.
Oh, for sure I'm a cheap reefer and always have been. Slowly updating my build thread and that will have a lot of DIY with explanations in the next couple of weeks along with what has already been done. There is a certain satisfaction in DIY that I can't explain. I don't always save all that much money but it is more about making it mine.
Reboot Standard 125. Nothing special here.
