Well finally got out in the greenhouse today and worked on the system. Have been super busy lately, so haven’t been working out there.
But today I got the plumbing to the grow beds and the return to the holding tanks in.
Got all the bell syphons in the line from the pickle barrels and the return lines in.
That is where the went well part ended…lol
I was able to use the parts from the old system for the bell syphons
Here is how I tied the grow beds together to make sure they fill at the same rate.
The Duck weed tank full and draining
showing the intake for the Duckweed drain. So it will pull water from under the Duckweed and not drain it in to the fish tank.
This is the line to the grow bed almost full
Just as the water started to flow to the grow beds.
Water to the grow beds.
Here is where the good news stopped. The water only made it to the first bed. After I re-checked. the pipe ran up hill from here. So I will have to do a little re-plumbing. But other than that and a few leaks( every thing is dry fitted) it works well.
