Morning- I am a new-be to aquaponics and was wondering if it is imperitive that the bell drains totally or not and why? I have made a small "barrel-ponics" system utalizing an 8" cpvc stand pipe and a clear food-grade jar for the bell.
The unit cycles great but the bell only drains to 1" below the top of the stand pipe. When the unit fills again the siphon works great and drains the resivour but the bell remains filled to within 1" of the top of the stand pipe. Does anyone see why this would be detrimental in any way. Thank you. Leo White Bear
