    Ok I'm still loving the RW pumps they are quiet and powerful and are easy to overlook in the tank.

    The DP-4 is still on week one of review last week was a bit of trial and error on my part not the pumps fault ( my tubing was floating up out of the waterline and dosing air. So I pulled out the water jugs and replaced them with 21 cup Rubbermaid containers, which I made a sleve out of FlowGuard wich keeps the tubing about 1/4" off the bottom.

    Next time, drill a 3/8" hole where you want to cut them so it makes a 1/2 moon cutout for fluids to flow through.

    I thought about it, and may still make some tooth cuts in the bottom of them but for now they work fine the tube ends 3/4" above the bottom and the 1/4" tubing is about 1/4" - 1/2" below that. I also drilled holes above the water line to allow air into the container.

    You can get el cheapo wood rasp bits for drills at Mao Freight to make the cutouts.

    Great idea for the jugs. What are you dosing? Alk, cal, mag, and top off?

    If you'd have mixed them all together you'd only have to use 1 channel so when it breaks, you just go to the next channel. :p

    But they're more fun when they hang around for a while and you get to play with them. ;)

    It all depends on how they hang. If you have to roll them up like a blunt... I'm out.
