Collecting water at bottom of tank, possible good idea?
    #1637226 - 06/16/03 01:28 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

This is my first time growning, so if it sounds like a bad idea please tell me because i dont exactly know what i'm doing. Ok i got this idea while i was drawing up blue prints for my tank, tell me if this would be possible and/or sounds like a good idea. When your getting out the water that has collected at the bottom of the tank, instead of lifting the lid and reaching down in, risking possibly contaminating the cakes, could you drill out a hole at the bottom of the tank thats would go under the wire frame so you could just unplug the drilled hole when the time comes to suck the water out and incert a thin basting tube and just suck it out that way and cover the hole when your done? It seemed like it may be a good idea if your one of those that are extra cautious in trying not to contaminate the cakes. Tell me what you think, and if its a useless idea, why?
Thanks :wink:

You mean a plughole?

Sure, anything which prevents undue interference is always a good idea :wink:

I use a barrel shaped screen (salvaged from an old espresso machine **) with the end of a small gauge flexible hose cut at a slight angle, inserted all the way in, and siliconed at the top of screen & around the hose. I suck out the extra H2O with a large needleless syringe.
** You could purchase a screen like this at any paint supply shop. They go on the end of the intake tube of a paint spray gun.
