what's going on?? Why all the power outages??
so in 14 minutes this thread has 31 posts... hahaha
Not sure, power outages are EXTREMELY rare up until now. Thanfuly they got the power up and running again. Happened right around the same time as yesterday. Just keeps on stressing out my fish and corals
lol i started the thread last night
Perhaps a battery backup?
this is what ive had the bubble hooked up to, its battery opperated
How weird! Well I hope the power stays on!~
I have one of these Air tanks and a Foot operated air pump like this one. I used some 1/4" nylon tubing and Valve and fittings, put this on it and hooked two 2" air stones like these to it.
When not in use I keep it filled up to 90Lbs using my air compressor, when the power goes out I drop an air stone in each end of the tank and turn on the air. this lasts for about 30 minutes at which time I hook up the foot pump and refill it.
I just bought a 12 volt air pump I can plug into my to use to refill it but you would be surprise how fast that little foot pump can fill that tank up.
