Ready for First Water Change

Two days and the tank is still running without issues. I’ve tested the auto-water changer and works great. The only thing that needs to be corrected is the connection to between the sump pump and the house drain. The piping runs across my basement in the ceiling and terminates at the main house drain. The termination point is at the clean-out port about 2″ above the floor. Well, wouldn’t you know that’s below the water level in that chamber of the sump. So when the sump pump turns off because the water level is low a siphon is still there removing water. I’ll have to install the drain pipe higher up soon.  Here’s a shot before the first water change.  Water is cloudy and tea stained from the wood soaking.
