Running synthetic is allot easier and gives better yields.
If the nutes are still somewhat chunky when they get to the plant, it's all good. That dirty submersible pump should do a good job working on a regular cycle and putting it all into suspension. Putting some banjo fittings with a hose on the pump would make rez cleaning a breeze.
Do you think the holes in your drip are big enough to let guano through with no filter.
I don't do compost tea ever, but sometimes I'll throw some guano, solution grade langbeinite, solution grade gypsum in a tea brewer, run the giant tea brewer to mix it and keep it from settling, and pump it out through a hose. Try to keep as much of the solids as i can. I don't want to loose the insoluble N from the guano. It's got to be half of the N
