Hello guys,

Finally started construction of my first syatem.

A big thankyou to all who helped me,decided to put that large trough aside for first system.

I will be going with all IBC for first system.

2 x IBC'S sump tank, 2000 ltr
2 x IBC'S fish tanks 2000 ltr
6 x IBC'S halfs grow beds 3000 ltr

As everyone kept saying,keep it simple.

Anyways,this is my first post,for new system,and i have started digging my sump hole.

I will start posting pics,as i go.

Any imput,and helpful hints along the way,will be great.

Off now to do a couple of hours digging.

Cheers

This is the site inside shed,where my 2 sumps,and 2 fish tanks will go.

At least there is a fall of a meter from grow bed site,to sump site.

Always fun starting with a blank canvas! You may already know but remember to put something around your IBC sump to stop gravel/dirt etc pushing against the plastic sides and in behind the framework which could lead to a split or leak.

Enjoy :thumbleft:
