    What are your thoughts on adding the prime or water conditioner into the bucket instead of into the tank itself? Wouldn’t this take care of the water being conditioned before it’s in the tank?

    I use pretty much this method, though I don't place pump in Aquarium to drain the water. With my bucket in my tub which is lower than my tanks, I put a bit of water in bucket and turn pump on for a few seconds and then turn it off. It creates a siphon for me which drains the water out of the aquarium. I found that out after I used this method the first time. I did actually how this video said but with the PVC hook I use in the water, it starting draining after I turned off pump and figured I didn't have to play let's move the pump around anymore. To fill I just leave the pump on and remember to remove hook after it's done draining. I have a demo video on my YouTube channel, though it's not as in depth about this one.
    It probably won't work if you put the bucket higher than your tank though.

    I like this idea but how about temperature matching. When doing it the bucket method I balance the temp with the tank and I prefer to add the water conditioner to the buckets.

    I got a pond pump and attached a garden hose to it to pump it out the window into the flowerbed/garden. To refill, I use Prime water conditioner and add it right to the tank (measuring for tank volume, not water added volume). I unscrew the nozzle on my kitchen tap end, add an attachment that lets me attach the garden hose right to the tap – and then I can easily fill the tank without worrying about the bucket in the sink scenario. Oh, and when adding water to a fish tank – always ensure that the end isn't in the water – let it aerate some. Especially if you are on city water. This is due to the gases in the pressurized waterline.

    This is definitely something I need. I bought a tall tank so using something like this will make life easier when filling. Also won't have to worry leaning my body on the tank. It takes me around 20 mins to take half the water out (about 60 litres) but takes double that time or more just to fill it back up. This will be really helpful for me when filling up the tank.

    Something which I think is a good idea is placing the pump in a bucket of water then fill it back up using another bucket when the water level is low. Saves the hassle of switching off the pump and putting it in another bucket of water and repeating.

    This was tge closest thing i found to what I was planing on so please any info you can give me? I want to keep a water flow from my aquarium to my big bucket right next to it so i can put the water there and it slowly gets pushed into the aquarium by dripping. It is for neocaridina shrimp so its important the water isnt changed at a fast rate. Can a pump do it slowly one drop at a time too?

    I actually took this a few steps further:

    I installed a adaptor collar on the pump's outlet, to which I placed a male quick-connect fitting. I placed a female on one of the outlets of a diverter valve, which is connected to a 25'-length of 5/8"-i.d. freshwater hose. At the opposite end of the hose, I installed large garden-hose flow-valve, to lock the water into the hose. This creates a column that automatically begin siphoning when the valves at both ends are opened, once the flow-valve is placed a drain point lower than the water level of the tank.

    "But why the pump on the end in the tank then?" you say… simple! The pump acts as a weight, keeping it's end of the hose safely in the tank. I'm ready to power it up, I simply thriw the switch of the surge protector strip it's connected to, and then switch it off–along with closing the diverter valve it's on–when the desired amount of water is removed.

    Now comes the big trick!…

    Since my drainage point is the bathroom (a FULL bathroom) I simply remove the head from the shower hose, then attach a second garden-hose diverter valve via a reducer/coupler. I then thread a RV/Marine inline freshwater carbon filter, then attach it to the hose via the flow-valve's collar.

    Running the tub tap first, I adjust the water to the desired temperature before switching it to the shower hose. I then let it drain via one of the diverter valve's ports into the sink until the desired temperature is reached again, then begin switching valves to run it through the carbon filter & hose to the tank. At the tank, I open the valve on the unused diverter port and allow the water to run as I add whatever water-treatment chemicals I use… usually Aquarium Salt, Stress Coat+ and Stress Zyme+.

    When the desired water-level is reached in the tank, I shut-off the corresponding valve, unplug the pump and shut-off the bath tap. Before disassembling the system, I shut-off the inline flow-valve and then open the valve on the unused diverter port at that end, to drain whatever pressure is in the filter and shower hose before disassembly.

    I then coil & place the hose and other parts in a 5-gallon bucket w/air-tight screw-on lid, going slowly as to not pull the pump out of the tank before I have the bucket near… to catch whatever water may drip from it. Once the pump's in the bucket, I disconnect it from the hose and coil it's cord before tucking it inside the bucket, and screw the bucket's lid back on for neat, safe storage in my closet until the next water change.

    If you make time in your video to address to the viewers why you do something, and all you have to say about it isn't really providing a reason… just leave it out, really.

    hi, quick question – I want to use such a pump for an extern DIY filter, I've yet to find out how LOUD or quiet it is.
    Using it for water changes doesn't matter as much, but for running it 24/7, I'd want it to be quiet…
