Home Made Res'

Hi all,

I've been surfing the web for some time now looking for a good res'

So, I thought I'd have a go at making my own

Here are a few pics to show you what it looks like.

These are the connectors I've used. There standard push fit tank connectors (1/2")

For a Res' I used a 3 litre plastic food storage container.

I used a wood 1/2" drill to cut through the container which worked very well.

This is the 1250 Eheim pump with the Res' making a simple circuit. Just to give it a quick test.

The bottom connect is the feed to the pump. As you can see there is some action at the top where the top connector is. This is a small problem as the pumps power pushes the water through the circuit with some force. I'm hoping the Weter Block and Rad' will slow the folw down.

The idea behind my new water rig is to have the Res' at desk level so I can use it to fill the system an bleed air.

The total cost of my Res' is £3.50, 99p for the container and the rest for the 2 connectors.

Wadda think?

Like it. Looks like it will work just fine. The simplest solutions are many times the less expensive ones! Let's see it in action!!

If you just put a lid on the container then the force of the water comming out of the top shouldnt make a mess

BigRed - Don't worry, the lid is gonna be on all the time. I left it off to show the extent of the flow.

I'm thinking about reversing the input/output to eliminate the problem.
