CC-Fuck! That's only 5 or 10 more then i paid for the aquarium pump. Thanks for the help. I should've done more research.

CT Guy-I reread my post and i realized i'm basically asking you to tell me how to build a product you sell! Sorry i didn't mean it like that. In Teaming with Microbes they suggest a 1/4 in. soaker hose(can't find) and i was wondering if anyone had a suggestion. After looking at the pump CC suggested i'm definitely going to be spending more $. Then i checked out the Keep It Simple site and i'm thinking it's propbably best to just order the 5 gal. kit.

Just didn't want to come off like a dick.

Please, please buy the unit from Keep-It-Simple because if your time is worth even $10.00 per hour you'll be better off buying their product.

Plus their support and after-market products round out the reasons to go with them. I built my own 5-gallon system and probably 'saved' about $40.00 in the final analysis. I was working for free in my calculations in order to 'save' $40.00

Live and learn! LOL

Hey, no worries. I realize the economy is tough right now and I get more and more people who want to make their own brewers to save money. From a business perspective, it's probably not the best for our company, but personally, I understand why. My whole purpose in this regard is that I want people to do it correctly if they are brewing compost tea or making a brewer, whether they use a commercial system or not.

There's a lot of variables that many people don't consider when they go to make a brewer, I just hope this info. helps!

Lastly, the motor that CC posted is probably closer to our extended life motor rather than our regular system in regards to the rating and life of the motor if you plan on brewing weekly.

Cheers!

Sprayers

CT Guy

I was at the KIS website last week and read the suggestions about the best sprayers for applying compost teas.

If I gave you a link to a specific sprayer brand and model could you tell me if it meets the guidelines at the KIS website perhaps?

Also - do you know where to source a stainless-steel mesh bag for filtering the teas into the sprayer?

Thanks for any/all help.

No clue on the stainless steel mesh bag. Post a link to a sprayer and I'll take a look. Ultimately, you should test the organisms before and after they've been through the sprayer if you want to be 100% sure.

Sorry about that but the various links wouldn't give you enough information to go on.

The manufacturer is Hudson and it's their Bugwiser Model #67215

From the photos at KIS it appears that the connection is what we're looking for as far as it being an 'open throat' (for lack of a better term). This product is made from stainless-steel and some of the things that I like about this product is that the connecting tube from the sprayer to the handle is a product that you can buy at any home improvement center.

Hudson sells the kits to refurbish these sprayers so that's a good thing.

And the price - I've seen these for as much as $59.95 and I was able to order it through WalMart and have it shipped directly to a store of my choosing for only $44.00

Having spent several dollars on the poly-sprayers @ $20.00 this seemed like a better deal given the construction materials.

Thanks again for any help!

EDIT: Here's a photo - big deal right? LOL
