Reefing Tip: Use a float valve – Save your floors and your marriage

I fill my 5g salt mixing bucket as well as my top-off container directly from my RODI unit… ¬† I added a 50′ hose to the output so i can just bring it directly to the tank rather than hauling buckets around the house…

Now if you are like me.. and get distracted easily you have have ‘forgotten’ about your water running and come back to a damp floor.. yes i admit it happened 4-5 times now over the past year or two… so i finally wised up and purchased some float valves.

I installed a valve on the top off bucket and will do another on my 5g mixing bucket… This way if i ever forget the water on … the valve will kill flow and prevent another wet floor.

 

So if you haven’t already… do it!
