I purchased a 100g rubbermaid plastic watering trough for around $50-60.
It has a 1 1/4" threaded drain hole which I plumbed a Little Giant pump
($140). I have the tub and the RO unit in the basement next to a utility
I also have two CPVC pipes running to my 75g aquarium. One to drain the
tank and one to fill. Currently the pump is hardwired to a switch in the
aquarium. However, when I finish my next aquarium I'll probably switch to
an X10 controller to power the pump so that I can turn the pump on from
The drain pipe runs down to the utility sink and the fill pipe is connected
to the pump. It all works very well.
I would prefer to have a sealable container. A local pet store that sells
RO water has a large 300g white translucent storage container with a snap
on lid and bulkheads near the bottom. I don't know where to find such a
beast though and this shop owner will not tell me where he got it. He'll
sell me one for a huge amount of money I'm sure.
Anyone know where to find a storage container like this?
