How long do the towels have to be? should they sit above the water or in it? I don't see how it matters really...I also want to make it so its easily changeable back and forth between the bong.

This. I wish my towels were a little longer. I can always tell when it is time to fill the reservoir now because I start hearing a drip drip drip. I'd suggest leave them long enough to be a couple inches inside the water. Just not so long that they come near your pump intake. Not sure how close would be safe/dangerous. I have no experience with submersible pumps in this sort of rig.
re. not hiding...
sure you are
I say just bite the bullet and get 2 new tubs to use for this, some wood or other strong stuff to hold up the weight of the upper tub, some zip ties to attach the rack to those 2 'extra' pieces of pipe I sent (or if not long enough, to whatever you can find that will work to hold the rack across the upper tub.)
For the rack to sit level you may possibly have to cut a 'notch' in the tub where the tube coming in sits. I had to do this.
re. quck change back and forth, I think the quickest change method is this - building the new reservoir/rack hanger and sitting it next to the old bong.
Eventually I am confident the old one will be 'converted' to other uses

Yes. 30cm tall tower bongs do work. However they are made differently from tall tower bongs. pm me if you want build advice / info - I've made 2 of these mini bongs and both worked / are still working fine.Edited by nub - 11/22/09 at 1:41pm
