... and temperature probes (nothing fancy). To connect a relay, basically you give the relay 5V and ground, and connect it to one of the GPIO pins. Then you can run a command on the pi that energises the pin (powers it on), which then switches the relay - easy :). Further to this, you can get relay ...

... rest. I know with the concrete tanks, apparently you can fill them with water and add acid continually for a month, keeping it at a low PH, and then it'll eat up all the carbonates that are raising your PH. Maybe it might work for the river stones? Or just treat it as you go, and give it time, ...

Screws sound like a lot less work then swinging a mallet all day, I was thinking I should treat it like framing a wall. So you spared me some effort with that suggestion. I even considered ...
