Diy Auto drip system
I need to make a auto drop system and over flow, To help make water changes easier for when i get my discus and make it automatic and save me tons of time in the process with needy stuff for the tank.
My question is this. I know nothing about auto drips, I have no clue where to start.
My no experience idea was to buy 2 50 gallon heavy duty trash cans with lids that are seal-able. place them outside higher than what the tank is and run pvc piping out the bottom of each and T them together. Run the pvc through my wall and straight above the tank with a drip emitter.
To make sure excesses water can run off I have an old over flow that I was gonna place in the tank and pipe it outside. I would have the timing of the drip to change 100 gallons after 4 days. not sure If i will top off the trash cans every two days or so. Not sure how to go about that.
P.s. I have a 125g tank.
