What's the coolest part about your system? What have you done to your system to make things better, faster, easier?

I'm not talking about dosers and ATOs, I mean things like automated or semi-automated water changes, super sweet fish room or under tank layouts that are well thought out and functional. Maybe you have some little trick/gadget that you use that you think maybe people haven't really thought of before.

What ya got?

Plumbed my top off into my RO. Never have to top off again.

Second fave, built a hose to drain and fill tank, haven't carried a bucket in years

Full mixing station and water storage in the basement. Plumbed right into my topoff resevoir and water change tank. Single handedly the best thing ive done.

Yeah, I'd have to say my water change system. Performs a 25% w/c in 20 mins with no buckets or wet hands/armpits.

Haha, usually our best inventions involve eliminating buckets!

Mine was to install the ATM machine at the front of the house for easy access.

Mine is along the same lines as Brad ... no more hauling buckets for me here either. Back said enough ... :smile:
I started off with an RO drum @ the back of the house and hauled buckets to the front, and waste water to the back of the house.
Then, after 3 years, I bought some hose and used a pump to fill my mixing tank. Next I modified said hose so I can pump both ways.
I now have a setup (very soon to be configured) in my sump room so I can pump RO water into my sump room drum, fill my mixing/ATO tanks from said drum, use a third drum to pump waste water into, and pump it all down the drain @ the back of the house.

Why didn't I do this years ago :doh:
