Wish there was one that has some sort of lift capability. I have a HOB fuge
What did you use to drill the hole for your ball valve/bulkhead?
Skurious, are you just using the 1/4" airline tubing like Brew did?
Yes, it works great for the water line, but the air line just gets water that wont come out without force. I think i will stop at the store on the way home and see what i can do.
ok so a bunch of fooling around and I finally made my own. Took me a bit to make it work but I might be able to help a bit with some of the problems. It took me a bit of testing in my garage basin to make this work but I finally did. The keys I found to making this work (btw i'm using 1/4" ID tubing on both breather and drain line) were to make sure that your breather tube is all downhill between your reservoir and fuge. The downhill made a difference in the ease of the water travelling back out of the breather tube when the siphon breaks. The other thing that helped me was shortening the drain line a bit so that the tube was feeding the fuge from about 3" above the opening for the breather line. That prevented most of the uncontrolled back siphoning problem. Anytime my feeder line was below the opening for the breather line it was easier for the siphon to work backwards than forwards, so it started pulling fuge water up into reservoir from the breather (not that cool).
nice hows everyones ATOS working not that its been awhile? did moxtrain save the day and figured out how to fix the kinks
