I can't remember where I saw this but for rimless tanks you want a safety factor closer to 8. Personally, I would want a safety factor of 10 or more. We never expect something being thrown at the...

The temperature difference is insignificant for this application. Rather than trying to calculate this using hydrodynamics, why not use TDS as an indicator? Seems a whole lot less complicated to me....

I'm confused. Trickle filters have large inputs from gravity and smaller pressurized outputs. The gravity flow equalizes to the output. If you can't get enough from the gravity feed you have no...

I'm not sure what you're using the barrel for. If you need a large pipe use a uniseal. If not bulkheads will work up to a maximum of around one inch. Uniseals are for curved surfaces.

The K2SO4 dose you were using is MORE than enough potassium for a non Co2 tank. If you indeed were dosing 15 ppm per week it isn't a K deficiency. I wouldn't bother upping the K2SO4 dose.
