A constant drip system.
« on: July 26, 2018, 10:29:06 PM »
Hello everyone.
I'm currently organising a new tank and want to get everything in order when it comes to water changes.
I want to do a constant drip system to the tank so i have constant fresh water but I can't get my head around water conditioners like tap safe. When do you add it or do you?
What's every one thoughts on this?

Thank you in advance.

Depending on the size of your tank, a drip system may not be enough for a "Constant" fresh water. 
Looking to have a 50%+ WC per week, you would need something in the area of a constant "trickle".
For water conditioner, you may want to do this meathod with container--50 gal Brute?

Me--I would rather do the weekly WC.
