    How to create a true automatic water change system?

    ok, im going off to college in a few years, and I want to make sure that my arowana can get his water changes, but my parents may no longer be physically capable of doing them. Even now, it is a problem. I NEED to get one installed ASAP. Every week, my dad is grumbling as he helps me take buckets of steaming hot water (we dont have hot water in our basement) and drags them down the stairs. I dont want my aro to lose his water changes, he'll die. so, HOW do you install an automatic water change system? price is no object. it NEEDS to be done, so ill raise every last penny myself if I have to. he should get a 50% every week.
    Rest in peace Bob. Early 2007 to March 9th, 2010. You will NEVER be forgotten.

    automatic water change

    Hello all i purchased a automatic water change controller that has been working great for me for over a year now. It`s a plug and play system from www.makoproseries.com
    ran across this old post and this system is worth the mention.

    if it's in the basement, there's probably an easy way to setup a drip system. Once that's rigged, you'll never again physically do a w/c again!


    OH ****!!! THIS IS HELLA OLD! Hammer is lamer with non-working site
