After A Few Hours Work (pics)

Recommended Posts

that sux that u hafta drain ur system - i drained mine today to fill it with distilled water from the fridge and to try a different color marker and well i found this lil painfull discovery:

 

epoxy doesnt like extreem temperature changes from room temp to real cold real fast...... as soon as i poured the water in i heard cracking and poping then all of a sudden water started dripping out the seams :( come to find out the epoxy didnt even bond to the plastic clipboard i made my tank out of - it just "stuck" to it - peeled right off :(

 

time to remod i guess

b4 i put the cold water in using water that had been in the system the lowest i got was around 91F and the highest it got was 111F

 

i never got to try and use refrigerated water in the whole system - the tank "exploded" at the sink - its a good thing i took it out to fill it up but my fridge is cold enough to make ice in milk so i spose i would have gotten temps around the 60-80's if i actually got the ice water in the system

 

the tank was 4.5x4.5x5.5 in inches - it was a nice sized tank held about a quart or so with the tank 3/4 way full and the system full
