I was talking to @RR-MAN this morning about tank maintenance. He reminded me to check on my CO2. Perfect timing it was emptyed. Drove to Praxair they are not the same company anymore. Some other company now but they still swap out CO2 10LB bottle for 24$. Just a FYI.

I didn’t take any pictures of doing the work, but today I cleaned my sump. Drained it with a python, then vacuumed it out with a shop vac. Then scraped and scraped until I could scrape no more. It’s not perfect, but so much better than before.

I was considering downvoting this considering that you don't have enough stuff crammed under your stand :p :cool:
