    Ok bought this bad boy today
    [​IMG]

    It's 12v. What do I need to buy to make it work from the mains supply. If I bring in a battery (12v) she will kill me

    Ps. I'm a complete idiot so any explanations need to be understood by an idiot!

    Thanks in advance

    I have one of the below use it to send RO water from a 25Ltr barrel to my water changer.

    Cost £29.99 but works very well.

    But yours works out cheaper.

    I use the same setup for water changes etc. Works ok and importantly fits in a 25l barrel.

    Ok first use report

    Got it all nicely connected and working. I used a Red Sea sock 100 membrane but it still leaked the crap from the bottom of my sump back into the sump. So I need to think of a different plan?

    Maybe some filter floss!
