 Razz   Razz  
 You  expected  some  magic  potion  that  ll  cool  your  tank  off?  well  no,  nothing  of  that  sort  at  all.  Very Happy  
 
 Here  is  what  the  thing  is,
 
 
 WP_001142  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 You  dint  get  it  from  picture,  did  you?  even  though  they  are  suppose  to  speak  a  thousand.
 
 
 
 Well,  here  is  how  it  works.
 
 1.  You  switch  on  your  cooling  fan(not  part  of  this  DIY)
 2.  You  are  losing  water  in  form  of  vapour.  (you  are  worried  if  it  will  evaporate  the  whole  tank?)
 3.  Well  this  is  the  solution  for  your  2nd  issue,  cool  down  with  your  fans  tension  free,  upto  1.5liter  per  day!!!
 
 Once  the  water  in  your  tank  evaporates------------------------->
 The  level  in  your  tank  falls  down--------------------------------->
 Once  the  level  falls  down,  the  water  from  bottle  comes  out---->
 Your  level  is  back  at  max,  so  no  drop  of  water  level  at  all!!
 
 What  this  means?
 You  dont  need  that  "gizmo-zonic"  water  top-off  pumps,  or  that  extra  pumping  sump  box.  Or  not  at  all  being  worried  about  the  water  pump  failing  or  overflowing  your  tank,  because  this  principle  is  fully  mechanical-  ZERO  electronic.  What  more  it  is  the  same  principle  of  your  water  dispenser,  so  nearly  no  failure  at  all.
 
 
 And  here  is  how  you  can  build  one
 
 WP_001118  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 
 The  stuff  you  need
 1.  One  1  liter  mineral  water  bottle(  you  can  go  for  a  1.5l  bottle  if  you  have  a  stronger  clamp  to  stay  on  glass.
 
 WP_001123  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 2.  A  wide  cap  that  is  big  enough  to  sit  on  th  glass  edge.  Preferably  you  can  use  strong  ones  that  come  for  Maltova,  Bournvita,  Milo,  Horlicks,  etc  etc.
 
 WP_001119  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 
 WP_001124  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 
 
 3.  A  hack-saw  blade.
 
 
 4.  A  metal  threaded  GI  pipe,  that  has  as  big  dia  as  your  bottle.  And  a  plier  to  hold  this  when  you  put  it  on  stove.
 
 WP_001121  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 
 
 
 Procedure-
 
 -Place  the  (green)cap  on  the  edge  and  mark  the  positions  to  be  cut  for  the  groove.
 -Cut  the  groove  in  the  cap  over  the  market  point,  which  is  about  the  thickness  of  your  glass.  Slit  through  with  saw  blade.
 
 WP_001131  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 
 WP_001130  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 -Heat  the  GI  pipe  holding  with  the  pliers,  over  a  stove.  Once  hot,  pierce  it  through  the  green  cap.
 You  ll  get  a  nice  hole  and  you  can  file  up  more  as  per  your  bottles  neck
 
 WP_001129  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 -Powerfully  twist  the  bottle  on  to  the  green  cap.
 -Place  it  over  the  tank,  and  check  your  desired  level,  and  increase  or  decrease  the  hole  dia,  to  maintain  that  level.
 You  can  see  the  bottles  mouth,  so  that  is  the  water  level  it  will  maintain.
 
 WP_001133  by  c2988208ae1b199f126a0034a11540f0,  on  Flickr
 
 -Optionally  you  can  us  an  extension  pipe  for  setting  an  easy  level.
 
 Installation-
 -Simply  fill  the  bottle  under  the  tap.(without  removing  the  green  cap)
 -Gently  turn  the  bottle  upside  down  over  the  edge  and  fit  the  green  cap  with  grooves  on  the  edge.
 -  Hint!!-  remember  you  dint  see  the  (blue)cap  in  any  of  the  pics,  well  preserve  it.  You  can  close  the  bottle  with  its  cap-  then-  tilt  it-  then  when  bottle  mouth  touches  the  water--  open  the  cap.........tada!!!!!  you  are  done.
 
 
 Happy  cooling  and  happy  summers...  and  dont  forget  to  refill  them  often  Drinking   Thumbs Up  
 
 
 ...next  tut  on  how  to  cool  humans  in  summers  Wink  Drinking

 Thumb Up   just  fantabulous...  I  also  liked  that  cooling  Idea  of  passing  the  water  from  the  tank  to  a  thermocol  box  filled  with  freezed  water  bottles...  if  anyone  remembers?  Smile

 What  is  the  bottom  green  cap  from?   I  have  been  toying  with  this  idea  for  quite  a  while  now,  mainly  to  avoid  the  unsightly  inch  high  scaling  due  to  evaporation.   But  I  am  facing  two  problems  with  the  bottles  I  tried.   1.  Getting  a  clean  enough  cut  to  keep  the  bottom  air  tight  (I  used  another  bottle  for  base).  2.  Keeping  the  top  bottle  from  toppling  over.   Perhaps  using  the  right  base  will  allow  me  to  finally  get  a  working  version.   :-)
