Default water drum

can i ask, how many actually uses a water drum?

i've been seeing it on sale, but idk how much help does it give actually, and putting in my bedroom isnt exactly a cool idea.

i've read some anti-chlorine related issues with the water top-up, so is water drums a solution?

Water drums are useful when it comes to water changes IMO. You can mix saltwater and store them in the drum first prior to doing your water change. This way, you don't need to mix several pails of saltwater for water change.

What anti-chlorine issues are you exactly referring to?

Cool

Water drum water storage is another alternative than using water pails.. Some people store a 150litres of water with proprtionate anti chlorine etc liquid, and with proper areation to store the water for water changing. Some people do without areation.

Some pple using direct tap water, some use filtered water. Water drum is jus another method. I place my water drum in toilet. Depend on my mood, sometimes i jus plug in directly from my filtered tap and goes straight to my tank.

Its jus a preference.. No right and wrong i feel

My 2 cents opinion..

I attach an auto top up system( like a toilet blow).

I added cc, some bio sponge and an air stone inside to age water.

When i need water ill just on a water pump and pump water into my fish tank.

If you need those drums i do have some extra. PM me and let me know.
