The king of DIY
You've come so far in 4 years Joey. I love coming back and rewatching these oldies. Thank you for all that you do in the hobby.
King of DIY. How do you know which wire on the sensor is positive vs negative?
Very cool, I didn't know those float switches could be fully submerged. Thanks!
this is brilliant, I've been looking for something like this and all I've found was something which will cost over $100. Thanks!!
Thank you! I managed to fail to see that my tank filled up while adding water to it today and ended up with ALOT of water on the carpet. Had to drain the 135 gal tank and move it so I could pull back carpet and padding to dry it adequately… Needless to say I will be doing this project !!
Brilliant. I just don't know how you come up with this stuff!
Thats pretty cool! I don't have this issue cuz I only do partial changes 99% of the time and fill with buckets (So obviously no water flowing without my being there) but this does sound a lot like an idea I had to keep a canister filter inside a large plastic tote in case the filter where to leak. With an alarm like this that would sound if there where to be water rising in the tote!
tanks a lot
can I use this switch to turn a pump on and off
awsome video!!!!!!! bro.!!!!
had a leak a few weeks ago, this would have been handy at the time…but gonna make one now, great video
Joe, are you an engineer?
i was watching this as my cat was wanting attention, the beeps from the smoke detector in the vid freaked her out lol
And can you please make a video on how to find branches/wood for your tank
Can someone tell cuz I found a seashell and want to put it in my tank, can I?
Where do you buy your glass for your diy aquariums?
For the electrical connections, if you aren't good with or don't have a soldering iron this stuff is good: http://www.amazon.com/Sciplus-Electrically-Conductive-Soldering-Wire/dp/B000Z9H7ZW (no affiliation by the way, i'm just lazy and burn my fingers too often!)
i have designed an aquarium and its 8mm thick for 35 gal/160 litres will it hold
can u make a video on how to make a manifold plumbing for aquarium
nice one bro
it doesn't get much better than watching water flow over the top of your 125 with your wife stand there lol
Hello, really enjoy your videos, I found your channel and watched a lot of videos from you and it made me wana buy my first aquarium as well.
The size will be around 60 liter as a starter aquarium and I would like to know what kind of filter I should use, I want it to be as quiet as possible since its gonna be in the room Iam sleeping in.
Keep up that great work and greetings from Germany!
the float switch must be for 9V? or it doesn't matter
Joey, I completely forgot about your channel. First found an interest in fish and your channel around 12. I am now 17 and I still have my 72 bow front. Miss you're videos and you loads man! Keep it up!
great idea Joey
guilty of not seeing the 1st vid..lol..
I assume they still work as smoke detectors. So, don't do water changes while your wife is cooking.
I remember your last video. I sent it to my daughter as a solution for a constantly flooding basement.
Love re-purposing! One thing I would add. I don't know when this was filmed or when you changed the detector… In my 20's I was a volunteer fireman. The habit I got into was to change the batteries and check the alarms the first week of October each year. In the US this is fire prevention week, it commemorates the great Chicago fire of 1871, and a great reminder to do this chore! I don't know if you have an equivalent in CA. It's a great way to remember to do an important maintenance item.
I remember that first vid. Great idea and build but how does the king of diy not have a soldering gun? Haha.
I remember the original video, need to make one of these for my aquaponics sump.
Hi joye: Just an idea for an update:
If you make two switches to the alarm, then you can have an upper and under limit for your water. A way of never having to much or to less water in the tank.
Could you show us how to build a diy UV sterilizer? I would love to have one but the prices on quality ones are very steep.
