Exactly what I've been doing. And this morning I could hear the trickle of water down my emergency, so I know the main is getting worse. Maybe I'll actually do it today...

The long weekend coming up would be a good time. I thought cleaning out my overflow would be an hour chore. Ended up spending 3 hours on it. I kept clogging the pipes with that mess and had to pull out my auger to clear out the pipe. Also made a big mess outside the tank I had to clean up :facepalm: Maybe yours won't be as bad as mine. Good luck!

Haha darn, I was going to ask how you didn’t have a huge mess… but sounds like you did lol. I have the bean style drains as well. I’m going to have to pull the pipes and give it a good clean, and of course the tank is against a wall.

Aren't most tanks against a wall? But ya, I hear ya. It was really awkward to get back there since the overflow is literally inches from the wall. I tried so hard not to make a huge mess but ended up with one anyway. What I ended up doing was taping up a huge sheet of painters poly wrap plastic on the wall and under the overflow around the tank. That helped a lot. Getting up there was awkward too. I'm not a tall person so balancing on a combination of step stools and barstools was interesting. Hopefully I'm good for another 5-10 years

Right on! I like the painters plastic idea, makes sense to minimize the wall mess haha. I am going to give it a go as well.

Nice pieces and good variety. Envious of the amount of corals being sold in Calgary compared to Edmonton.
