Cindi Conway replied to Deborah M Espie's discussion Adjusting water flow into grow beds and bell siphons
"Deborah, I have 35 1/2 barrel beds that operate on their own timing. I have found that all I have to do is look into the siphons each day to check the water levels. If the water is somewhere in between the top and bottom of the drain, it tells me…"
