blumats and reservoirs

just wondering if anyone felt like posting pics of how they got their res setup?


whether it be a single res, or double res(one on ground and one up high), i want to see them....i know more and more ppl are using blumats, so lets see some of that ingenuity we got here

still hoping for some pics ppl, lol...

so i was over at the spot...i decided to keep the res out of the room to give me more grow space and to keep res temps cooler...i managed to build the frame for the elevated res and get the ducting for my exahust mounted through the ceiling...got the blumats in a bucket of water to soak over night and ill end up doing it tomorrow...

i also forgot my cam to take some pics but will get some done tomorrow....

I use a tent set-up. I have a length of drywall that rests on-top of my tent, and I have a 5 gallon square reservoir that rests on that. I have just the one bulkhead and I use .224ID silicone tubing (in lieu of the 8mm black plastic tubing) that drops to the floor of the tent, then T's of into a circle. I have a shutoff valve nearest the door of the tent with which I bleed about 2 cups of H2O every day or so.
Hope that helps some.

Here is the temporary setup that I have going until I get my new area done. The feed line is 3/4", the return 1-1/4", there is a Tunze circulating pump in the lower reservoir for stirring, and the lift pump is a Mag 3. The pumps are on a digital timer and run for 2 minutes, 3x a day. The upper reservoir is a 5 gallon bucket that probably holds about 4-1/2 gallons at the overflow level, and the lower one holds 20 gallons. There is a single feed line on this one with a valve at the far end for purging air, flowing the system, or whatever (like the bottom drawing in heady's post).
