PVC pipes & valves are for water changes. The T-off is from the filter return, which leads to the laundry sink via the soffit for the heating ducts, which originally ran above the tank anyways, and made for a natural division in the room before I put the tank wall in.
The FX5 is plenty powerful enough to drain the tank in a hurry. The light canopy lifts up to allow better access if I need. The timers & power strip are mounted high on the wall just below the ceiling.
