Vacation office top off

I figure a bunch of ppl here have their nano at work. So here’s something for the holidays if you’re away a bit longer than a long weekend.



DIY CO2 bottle cap

Don't ask for advice. Ask for information, gather lots of information from different reliable sources. Then use the information to make your own advice.

This is nice, I might have to snatch this idea up, though I wish there were a way to do a simple auto topoff that was hidden behind the tank, and wasn’t electronically confusing.

Worked great. Came back and the bottle was empty and the water still at the overflow line. Even my drip reservoir was empty.

Yes, this tank is plumbed with an overflow and a drip system so it would have stayed topped off till my drip system ran out of water, then topped off from the bottle when there was sufficient evaporation.
