Buying and maintaining 4-5 filters puts it way out of what I want to call simple? Simply does not apply to my tank needs.

Ah, it's a continuous drip system. Neat.
You should have a safety plan in case the drain pipe is clogged. The incoming water can be shut off easily.

I'm thinking of using the house filters for water changes too. No more using dechlore and can be safer in emergencies where there are unexpected chemicals in the water.
