So, I added some new 1" PVC to the East side of the greenhouse to add some additional vertical towers for basil, kale, and chives. The problem: even with the increased pipe size, the pump doesn't provide enough head pressure to reach the top of the towers. Yikes. Going to try and add small tubing from 1" pvs and see if that will work. If not, kind of perplexed. Is there a formula for how much water needs to be pumped into the FT from the sump? If I reduce the amount further, I may be able to get the current pump to work. It's an aquascape 45gpm. I'm running 1 260gall sump, 225 FT, 1 DWC 24 sq ft, 2 GB at appx 45 sq/cu ft. Good growth on all, but trying to squeeze in some more verticals without buying a new pump. Going with a high efficiency pool pump next time.
