That's an ongoing fiasco. PR is needed from now on. *sigh*
With the $ they are investing in this project, you should have your own PR person!

Little video of the tank Scott shot when he was here last. I promise the update is coming. Its just going slowly. Combing through pictures and rejecting them because of people or patients is a bit irksome.

Anyone know where I can get a magnet cleaner that can work through 2" thick acrylic? I have the super magfloat and its just not cutting it. It works well for film or dusting algae but if its moved with any speed or force it lets loose.

Looks really really good.

Quick question. I am trying to look close at the two surge drums and only see the input and output plumbing. You said that the valves open via float switch trigger. Is there a backup drain just in case a float sticks? Or a backup float to kill the feed pump?

Any thoughts of a webcam or submerged camera for children that cannot leave their beds?

yes there is an emergency drain. its at the top of the surge tank. the input is between the valve and the tank. that way there is no splashing in the tank.

yes they have plans for a web camera in the future. that way the children can see the tank when theycant leave there beds or are not at the hospital.

How many weeks does it take to get 1 picture I ask you?!
Well, while I wait on the others here is Scott and I at the CCC opening day. Aww, see how happy he is? *Sigh* It's as if he just recieved a "joyour conclusion" from a disreputable shiatsu salon! How's that for a circumlocution?
