Wouldn't think there was enough clearance for the float to work.
Float valve coupled with the drain valve is awesome...
...video proves that, but wondered why the wound quit, wanted to hear the valve shut off.
Also appreciate failure of heater documentation, great idea to put it in a spoiler.
This is so great. I am always looking for an easier faster way to manage duck muck. I also enjoy hearing about the screw ups that happen during a project. .
Just in case I might get the same bright idea.
If you ever come up with a way to keep this from freezing please update us!
I love this idea, I've been looking for something to do to help me keep cleaner water for all the animals. My ducks muck up every water source i have! I installed flow valves on hoses to the kiddie pools but once they're dirty (which is immediately) they're a pain to clean out. Thanks for sharing and for the detailed description of how you did it!
I wonder if you could attach the heat cable up each side of the pipe, just below the water level, but leaving a clear path down the bottom of the tube?
Or get a larger size of pipe, cut so that the current setup would fit down inside it, lay the heat cable inside the larger tube, then lay the current tube on top of that?
The bf will probably make this for me as i spend 15 extra minutes doing the water thank you for doing this article!!!
I was really shocked on how quick it drained the ''yuck" and the photos were great.
I liked the spoiler on what not to do.
