My hose is about 10m too and I empty half of my Rio 125 in 7 minutes.aaronnorth said:how far do you think one of those pumps (285l) would pump out some water? I would need it about 10metres. What size pump would you say i would need?
so i would need about 500l pump which would empty my 180l in about <15mins.LondonDragon said:
All depends if the diameter of the hose can handle the flow, but a higher pump most likely will improve the speeds, I just use normal garden hose. Similar to this:aaronnorth said:so i would need about 500l pump which would empty my 180l in about <15mins.
what type of hose do you use?
This is what I was planning on doing, though I want to be able to connect it to the shower rather than a mixer tap.mr. luke said:i have a similar method, that cost about Â£10 maybe less.
-hose in tank at height you want the water to go down too.
-suck the oposite end
-chuck it down the drain
-watch the tv for a bit
-stick in your decholrinator and add wqater of a similar temperature from a mixer tap, so wimilar process, without all the y connectors and pumps though
