Share 'how large can a media bed be? different drain tech?'
i would like to make a 4'x20' media bed with a bell siphon. i was reading around and some forums said that the bell siphon might stop before the whole bed is drained because it will suck the area around it dry and stop. i dont think this is true due to the nature of gravity on water. maybe it would happen if the pore space between the media was too small.
Can the bed be longer? 40' even?
