    I will take some pics tonight when i get home.

    Basically i used a 1.25l energade bottle.
    Made a hole in the lid big enough for the pump outlet.
    Drilled holes and slits in the bottom of the bottle for the water to escape.
    Used mesh over the pump outlet to stop the pellets from falling in the pump incase of a power failure.
    Placed a plastic pasta holder over the bottle so the water does not spray everywhere.

    .... turned on power.

    Yes i am looking at slowing down the pump, and making 1 or 2 slight adjustments.
    I wanted the NP pellets to run a day or two befor i tinker with it.
    Plus i might have to add a few more pellets i went on 100ml per 100liters
