Anybody else have trouble getting cool water for water changes?
So as the thread title states, right now the coolest that I can get my tap water is about 83-85 degrees, so I've been doing 50% weekly water changes with that when my normal tank temp is like 79.5 degrees or so. Tank temperature goes from 79 up to about 81 or 82 during water changes and takes a full day to drop back down. I put about 30-35 cubes of ice into my tank during water changes to get the temp to stay in the low 80s.
My next solution is to fill buckets up with water the day before and wait for it to cool down overnight, but I would need five 5 gallon buckets for that and I only have two =P. Anybody else run into the same problems? It's just 100 degrees outside every day for like 2 weeks and 90+ for over a month now.
