:lol:  Yep, that's where I got it from.

Ok...new update:

I now have my ppm down to about 1500.  I'm just wondering if that in the future I should only add nutes when it appears as if they are exhausted so as to avoid too much ppm instead of sticking to my set feeding schedule...?  Also, I've noticed my PH up and PH down have incredibly high ppms.  They took my ppm up substantially when I just put a little in.  I need to be careful with that shit.

So, I need to watch ppm and PH.  Is there anything else I need to watch?  I never read a book or anything and am going blind into all of this.

Can u run a hose ?  U can buy a fitting at local hard ware store that allows u to hook a garden hose up to you sink faucet.  So then u can run the hose from the sink to the rez.

Not possible.  My room has no running water and is not near a sink.  I would literally need a hose that was over 50 feet long, to find a way to snake it up the wall, and then to run between several floors constantly monitoring everything.

As an aside, is there a system that would function better than my 40 gallon ebb and flow tables?  They are really ending up to be a pain in the ass.  If I could have a much smaller resevoir and have that run all of my plants it would be incredible.

what's wrong with 50 foot of hose ? :grin:  That is the way I use to do it.

Anyways.  I plan on making a ebb+flow with a 2x2 table and a 3x3 table.  I plan on using 20 gallon rez.  So I mean you could downsize your rez but u would just have to make sure to check the water levels.

Can u remove your rez from under the table ?  I plan on building it so that the table sits about 8 inches above the rez so I can reach in there and take the rez out and dump it down the sink or tub when the time comes for water change.

I do not have enough room to have the resevoir off to the side.  Also, when completely filled with water my resevoir is easily over 300 pounds.  You can't pick it up.

Well what I meant was to build like a stand or something to raise your table straight up over your rez so that they are technically stacked but are not touching.  Kinda like below.  300 lbs. aint alot lol.

I would still have to pump the water out into something.  Right now I pump it into large gas cans.  I do two at a time that hold 5 gallons a piece.  So, it takes four trips to empty and four more trips to fill it back up.  It takes easily over an hour and it is a pain; hence why I don't want to do it every week like everybody suggests.
