Re: Water Changes

Tom, and Everyone,

I have a new bigger tank, and am already tired of hauling twice as many
buckets, half the distance to the sink.

I have been imagining  a DIY siphon like Tom's,
but am really bothered by the idea of pouring all that nice clean tap water 
down the drain to get the neccesary suction. 

Any ideas on what sorts of hand (or foot) pump are available that 
could be installed in the circuit instead?
Standing there squeezing is still less work than hauling buckets.

Any suggestions out there?
