"Hi Jeremiah, I'm not saying that Jeff's sump will float, but neither am I saying that it will not. Only that if certain conditions conspire to align, it can. I've seen a buried IBC sump do that. Two of them actually. The one sump had…"

"Hey Jeff, with the plastic walls of an IBC provide enough insulation to negate most of the cooling effects of the ground unless it was really moist. If you took a freezer and cut a hole in the top (never the sides!) to put your pump down through,…"

Jack Dunbar replied to Thomas Bean's discussion new set up
"No you don't need a sump. a sump is helpful to help maintain the water level in the FT. As long as your grow beds don't draw down your FT to much, you should be all set. I was always told to cycle all my FT water at least once every hour."

"Hi guys, remember Archimedes of Syracuse ...that guy who told us that when our 50 gallon grow bed is filled with media (rocks, LECA, whatever) that it will no longer hold 50 gallons of water? That same Principle of his, so aptly laid out over 2,200…"
