Jart, yes that is what I meant regarding the possibility of the aquarium/filter water possibly being able to get into the potable water supply of the home.

People that use automatic drip systems or float valves on a sump system don't have the fresh water entering below the tank or sump water level.

As Hoppy mentioned, you want to prevent backflow from the aquarium/sump to your household water.
