Acquiring IBCs

I read a lot about using IBCs, that they were cheap (around $140), and that they were easy to obtain. The reality is not quite what I was led to believe. I am in NH. I had to go to IL to find IBCs. I was told that they are being phased out. Still, I was able to order two, with new tanks, for $239 each. That would not be so bad, but the shipping cost was an additional $418. The way things are going in this country, I expect the costs to escalate from this point on.

Bell Siphone problem

Bell Siphon – Stand pipe top needs to be level. A ton of water and media can distort wooden, metal, and plastic grow beds with Bell Siphon looking like the Tower of Pizza. Ooops. Put proper support under grpw bed and support with auto jack for fine tuning.

Murray Hallam is ripping out his large commercial PVC tube system in Australia due to temperature problems with water overheating in pipes. He is converting several large greehouses to grow beds, an expensive change. Congratulation…
