The ink level h in the tank is important.

Conclusion - simple tanks is a bad decision.

I would have only one caution for you about using the Mariotte ink system as good as it is.

Do not try to use pigment ink with it as you had in the previous CISS (Pictured A4)
because it would clog up in no time at all and give nothing but headaches to you.. :(

Hat, I do not understand you. I use the same ink now. A4 was three years ago.

The sample of Mariotte's bottle is a chicken water trough.
