Question for you plumbing gurus
So my stand is ready for my new tank (50g 90P dimensions) and it's time to figure out plumbing. This is my equipment:
2 canister filters
The thing is I want to put in plumbing for a garden hose adaptor so I can do drains and fills. The tank is 10ft from my front door and I have a spicket another 10ft away from that.
My plan is to put 2 ball valves on the return section of one of the canisters. One right before the garden hose adapter and another right before the canister input. So to siphon the water I just turn off the filter, connect hose and turn off canister ball end and turn on hose end so all water is now emptying out the hose.
Then for adding water I split the return right before the lily pipe with a T connector. Add a ball valve to the garden hose adaptor, and ball valve to the canister output. To refill I just shut off the canister ball valve and turn on garden hose side and now lily pipe is pushing out new water.
Does this sound feasible?
