alright, the level of the water drops by about 500mm in each cycle (about 4000L), but there is also lots of water returned in the same time.

Bertha pumps at 200L/minute, Davey pumps at 180L/minute

thats 8000L out in 40 minutes, while Davey pumps 6000L back in in 33 minutes (the overlap time)

sounds good to me, as long as you keep flooding and draining, you will be on a winner because you have heaps of water and heaps of gravel!

Wow Jaymie, I love what you have going on here - you seem to have the luck when it comes to putting systems together!

What sort of system are you looking to set up?

At the moment I am scanning the various systems on here to gleen some ideas (there are SO many to choose from on this site!)
I have yet to try my hand at stuff like auto siphons, they sound interesting!
I want a big tank (at leats 1000L) and the appropriate growbeds - perhaps a bit of DWC too?

PTM - I think big tanks are the way to go, creates a more stable system.

yep, if you ever get a bit of ammonia or nitrites, just lay off the feed for 12 hours and it will be back on track. Big systems are the way to go IMHO

Uhm, a bit big for me - some of those big white containers FoodandFish used in his system and a few other people have used look good.

That the ticket - just have to find some for sale here - I know they are about as I have seen them here... was thinking I could cut one in half and use it as 2 500L growbeds (I have not seen that done here, has this been done?)

I haven't seen any one cut one in two. That would be interesting. I think people are just so glad to get their hands on one, that they couldn't stomach the idea of cutting it up :shock:

Not being uv stablized may also be a reason for not using them for grow beds?

Interesting idea - I have old shadecloth in the shed, if I get more IBC's donated from the airport I will attempt this, then wrap it in shadecloth to'protect it' - I could also rub it down with coars sandpaper, then give it a coat or 2 of paint - that might help a bit!Thanks for the idea PleaseTeachMe
