If anyone has been threatening to get a battery powered air pump and hasn't done so, I strongly suggest you do. Northwold had no power for 10 hours today, I'm quite sure I would have had a dead tank when I got home from work.
hi jacques,Hi gaboon - I got 4 (only 2 connected at the moment, though). I also have my 12v return pump connected to a car battery... This is to keep circulation/filtration going in my 2 metre tank, while the power is out.
Hi Andreas - I just run my bilge pump 24/7, as a second sump return. I do sometimes notice the battery running down more than what the charger can charge the battery. I then disconnect the pump for a while that the charger can "catch up" the charging.... BUT Generally, this works well....Jacques - so explain to me how you switch over from normal electricity?does your bilge pump run 24/7?
i'm sure i've read a thread a while back that explains how to switch to another source when the power goes out. anyone remember?
you lucky!you would most probably have commited suicide but jumping out of your building if something had gone wrong with your tank??and that for some cigs??i was gonna buy,but only had R20.00 in my wallet,so had to make a choice,cigarretes or the batteries,ended up buying the cigs
must get some batteries today....
