quick saltwater prep

well if you want to get your new saltwater made up quickly
and you have some moolah to spend
here is a great way to prepare new saltwater fast

get a big pump for your makeup water container

let me tell you folks why i came up with this

i was working on my tank the other day putting together a clm
after getting it assembled and mounted i went to remove my pump for replumbing the system
as soon as i tryed to loosen the ball valve on the top of the pump -SNAP - (i broke off the top treaded part of my pump nnoooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
after some time cussing some unmentionable words and cleaning up
a figured why not try it out on the new water can (new saltwater waterchanges)

MAN does this flow something wicked
so now im sure i'll be able to prepare all my new water in hrs , not days
