Installing a tap at the bottom of tank

Installing a tap at the bottom of tankInstalling a tap at the bottom of tankDo you think is possible to installed a tap at the bottom of the tank。 When changing water, just attached a hose and drain the water? Thanks

Thanks Hi brother, i dont think you should do that because as what i was taught。 Water is divided into 2 tiers, for the top half the quality of the water not be as good as what you have on the bottom。 So if you tell me you want to install a tap at the bottom i do not think it will be helpful to your tank as you are going to drain out the better water。 Correct me if im wrong, im still learning too。
>Agreed with Bryan 。 You should be hard working and change water the old way hehe !
>Bro, you can ask the SG Bros tank maker to install a valve in the piping and easily connected to the hose, it will drain the water out based on the length of the outflow pipe。 I am using it。 But to fill in the water, you have to use the old method。 In this way, you need not drain the water in the base of the tank。

I will correct you, (dont mean to sound like an A-Hole, but you are mistaken )
The statement is wrong。
There is no such thing is bad and better water in the tank。
All the waste, hormones, slime that we have in our tanks that we want to remove are water soluble (except solids and feces)。
Water soluble in basic chemistry means, It is instantly diluted。
Example!
100 litres of water - 10ppm of nitrate
If you add 200 litres, it becomes 5ppm of nitrate
and so on and so on。
IF you have good circulation in your tank, then that means water will be consistent from one side to the other, top or bottom of the tank。
No such thing is better water。
Your filter inlet usually does a good job of circulating water, a pump inside will DEFINITELY circulate water enough。
SO, here is the tip i have。
There is no need to install a tap at the bottom, Largely cos, the bottom of the tank is where most of the pressure is, so putting a tap here will compromise the strength of the tank, that should be your PRIMARY CONCERN。
Instead, You should do this
(i have done this, and do this to ALL my tanks - i have implemented an automatic water changer, so i NEVER manually change wate ranymore, NEVER, i only feed feed feed! )
I dont even siphon the bottom! the fish disturb the water, and filter takes the poo!
What you should do is this!
ON the top corner of the tank - Make sure this is opposite the filter outlet or return。。。。
You should drill a hole, I would recomment 2cm diameter to 3cm diameter, depends on tank size。
Then you put some plumbing fittings on here, and have a hose or pipe draining to where ever you want to drain the water。
To make it easy, and i give my 100% guarantee that this works,
I have maintained and do maintain a nitrate no higher than 15ppm in ALL my tanks。。。
once the hole is there, fittings fitted and the hose is extended to a drain where the water can be disposed of。 This can be a basin, window, sewage drain, garden, anywhere。
YOu then literally (IT IS THAT EASY) pump your new water on the other end of the tank, the opposite end, usually i pump the new water where the highest turbulence is。。。。
the outlet of the filter is best。
Or just abuve the airstone。。。。
the water will mix and disperse, dilute the waste and drain automatically。
NO buckets, No manual changes。
IF YOU HAVE A SUMP FILTER SET UP (sump at bottom of tank with over flow inside tank)
easy, you drill a hole and do the same thing on the Sump。。。
In the sump, usually there are 2 sides, side where water comes down from tank, and side with return pump。。。 。i would drill a hole on the return pump side。
SO the new water gets a chance to disperse and dilute the tank water and mix properly。
THis works。
let me know if this is not clear。
but doing this, it will revolutionise the way you do WC, and enjoy hobby。
Like i said, since i did this, i NEVER did any manual changes again。
i had 6 tanks, total volume of 3000 litres hooked up to my water changer, all auto changing 。。。 just feed feed feed
>Or what you can do is get those garden hose type, where you only run out the hose when you need to change the water。 Rest of time can keep in store room。

But i did actually carry out a water test on both upper and lower layer of tank water and the reading were indeed very different。
If dissolve or mix, shouldnt both test be the same? Anyway, im not against your reasoning, but from my own perspective and own tests on both layers of water, im convinced that this upper and lower layer water thing DO exist。
But for what i said its my personal belief base on water test results, others may choose to whatever they want to believe。

your water source directly from the tap or you have separate aged water tank?
the water input is turned on by manual valve or you have some ";intelligence"; electronics timer which will release water into the tank automatically?
interested to know how you made wc automatic!
