I'm still alive, just silly busy with 2 jobs and volunteering not to mention the kids, have been focusing on other projects as well! im the kind of person that puts in all my efforts into a few things and they have 100% of my attention!

I was pressed at the time to at least dig out the hole and fill it in with all the left over steel and ibcs that were hanging around in the yard; and i've just been flat out with getting a business off the ground and when you see a good opportunity you have to go with it.
Also the mentor i had initially to get me started with the project has moved to WA, and i got up to the stage where i needed to put more money into the build and arrange somehow a sump to be made as i couldn't find a drop in solution.

I am nearly the completion of my current project a car ive owned for over 20yrs and i saw a moment where i could help out a mate with establishing his workshop in turn getting my car done for a nut and bolt restore.
I do appreciate all your messages, i am at the mercy of the search engine and learning what to do all over again, i had some notes for circuit boards, programming ardiunos planned and sensors ordered from china. All these things lost and now have to be re-researched again! I was hoping i could find someone locally that could point me in the right direction as i know i have actually designed a complicated setup.

joblow - 25mm black poly pipe from bunnings with just regular irrigation fittings for feed water, what sort of size would you recommend for drain/dump water? thats some good guidance for the siphons thanks!

boss - yes indeed mate, its a mazda rx7 ive been working on. So far over the years we haven't seen much water come in from the grass or underneath; here in adelaide it never rains :D the corrugated iron is sunken into the ground a further 75mm and the totes are sitting on steel pallets on top of clay.

had a play with the siphons today, and i couldn't get them to cycle on que, the stand pipe isnt level so i think that isnt helping, will try again tomorrow with some more bracing - if the grow media was in there it would hold it straight and wouldn't allow air locks in the system.

I also think i might have made the bells too short
