From that we'll just run a 13mm tube spine between the barrels and tee off into each barrel...

Each timer cycle will deliver a small amount of water during the full flood stage...

We'll fit a small valve to control or shut off the flow... depending on season, heat, evaporation and/or moisture of the barrels... the barrels will drain to waste any excess water...

The hole in the blue tank is being fitted with a float valve to automatically top up as required...

Good on ya... more of us should do it!... I'm jealous... I'm a country boy that moved to the city about 13 years ago, and I quote: "Just for a couple of years... just to see what the city life's all about"...

and I'm still here!... :upset:... somehow, somewhere along the line, the plan went off track!
