"Hi Isaiah, I saw your question this morning, in the chat window....last night you asked about getting your bell to stop.
Most times, the water coimming in is 'too fast'...for the bell to break it's siphon.
"How are things going Nigel? Have you made any changes to you system based on the conference? How can I contact Sean? I will be posting before and after pictures soon of the changes I've made to my system."
"i use a gravel and granite mix in the media beds. i like to use 70% pink granite(3/8 to 1/2") and 30% texas pea gravel. this has proven to be the best mix to keep the PH in the 6.8 - 7.0 range.
in the net pots and seed beds i use expanded shale."
