I guess it is about time for an update huh?

This thing has been running flawlessly for over a month now. At first i would get a little nervous when i heard the drain start to gurgle a bit before it began siphoning. Now it's just a daily reminder of my genius!!

Some of the plants are doing better than others. I'm not sure what's what yet because i just tossed a bunch of seeds into the grow bed. It looks like one of the 5 different veggies is kinda taking over. My guess is the broccoli...

I haven't done a water change since setting this system up at the beginning of February. I actually bought a cheap testing kit the other day because my curiosity got the best of me. Nitrates were approx 15-20ppm. Not too shabby considering all i do is top it off with about 2-3 gallons of RO water every day.

Here are a couple pics.

Well it finally happened. I made a big mess! I took the hoses out/off to do a little cleaning and forgot to reattach them..... I heard a waterfall pouring down in my house and ran to find my tank water being pumped up into the air like a geyser!! Luckily I was able to stop it before losing too much water or making too big a mess. Thankfully I was at home!!!

That's insane, I just had my entire 55g drum pop the flow valve and empty into my basement. I feel for you, love the set up
