Not this year, but it'll happen! :weee:ya
Going to go as big as I can fit it. Need to save $ for the liner, first. That's the biggest expense, besides the tractor, lol.

Redid some plumbing. They don't seem to make an even splitter... Higher one doesn't put out water unless freshly restarted...ugh, have to find something else to use to level them.
This, when fixed, should stop it from over flowing. The mesh tubes also catch all the fines, leaving the media in the bins cleaner.

Took the smaller net off, then put up the shade cloth.
