So Jason, since your here do your Osmolator? ;D
Surprised you know what I was talking about. Looks like I left out a word or two. ;D
Am I being paranoid? I know it's not cheap, just want to make sure your happy with it.
Ok you asked for Pic you got pics.
By the way I love this thing. After the loss of the Lemon Peel Angle I was conviced I needed something to stablize my water. Because it is a 40G and the weather has been unusually hot in BC for the last three months 32C or 89F) I was loosing a lot of water to evap in order to keep the water cool. But now I maintain a constain water level while also having high evap to help with the heat. It is a pricy little unit but its worth the piece of mind, having read the threads on home made float switched failing often, I really didn't want to go that route.
With out further delay
Kick butt J.
Are you using a five gallon bucket as a reservoir?
Sorry I added all the pics in seperate posts but deleted them and will now post all in one thread
Wow. Tanks looking great J!
What size is that sump?
It's a 20G Tall. I really messed up the overflow, and finally fixed my homemade dual dersos. One was about 3mm higher than the other so the taller one would suck in a lot of air. Noisy Aquariums make me mad. I thought I would have to ripe the hole thing apart and straighten out the over flows but simple cutting 3mm of the stand pipe fix it.

Nice. I am sure I'll have questions for you next weekend when I get back on my 20 long project - it has a durso. Never dealt with one before.
Jason, I have my ro/di line run from under the kitchen sink up through the attic to my sump where I have my float valve. To use the osmolator do you have to have a seperate top off reservoir of water for it to work or can I just set it up directly into my sump with the line that comes through the attic?
