Constant influx

I am thinking of having a constant (but small) influx of tap water for new
tank I am setting up. If the flow is on the order of 25% per week there
shouldn't be any problems (especially since on occasion I have done 25%
untreated changes all at once with no noticeable negative impact on fish or
plants). I was thinking of pretreating this trickle flow through a peat
media. (Note:  4 dGH and pH of aged tap water is 8)

It seems to me that this would provide a very stable environment and lower

Who has such a system?  Any tips? How do you ensure that, if for some reason
the outflow becomes blocked, you don't spill water?  

Thanks in advance.
