Re: Water Changes

Steff: "Any ideas on what sorts of hand (or foot) pump are available that
could be installed in the circuit instead?"

I wasn't entirely clear in my description. If you put a ball valve on both
ends of the hose, you can store the hose while it is full of water. Put one
end of the hose in the tank, and the other end where you want the water to
go. Open the valves and the siphon will start by itself, assuming the outlet
end is lower than the tank. Then when you refill the tank, simply close the
ball valves and trap the water inside the hose, leaving it ready for the
next cycle. No pumps needed.
