"How have you set up the discharge cycle. They should not all fill together, or drain together. 5 beds on a fifteen minute cycle. Each bed needs to start draining 3 minutes after the last bed. How big are your beds/sump tanks."

"Thanks Jim for the pic.  I have been thinking about something like this for a bigger system I'm going to build this Summer.  The cost of copper and an exchanger was somewhat of a deterrent but seems like CPVC works just fine. "

Jim Fisk replied to Angela Pierce's discussion Wintering your IBC tote/ fish tank in the group IBC Aquaponics
"I did not insulate the 275g inground sump as I wanted it to buffer the temp down in the Summer and up in the Winter. Seems to help. Keep in mind I grow trout so the ground temps are in their range."
