Re: [Killietalk] Automatic Water Change System
Hi Chris,Sounds good but get it up and running to work out the final
"kinks".The two problems I see are the "house" pressure(tap water)
overpowering the Mag driven RO but you say you can contoll that with
final adjustments on a ball valve and make sure you get an automatic on
and off(floating switch) with the final resovior sub pump(the cheaper
pump with manual,visual operation is not the way to go). Sincerely,Fred
