Things are still moving along.
Here are the Ft's cut and HP washed.
And GB and sump setup,
Sump will have to be joined with some uniseals at lowest point I can get to.
1400L worth of GB, 1300L worth of sump, 2000L of FT's.

Who's had sucess with washing IBC's with some sort of oil in them ie hydraulic/motor oil. I can get more for $O but they have had oil in them????

My system runs 2 independent SLOs from 2 separate tanks and has no sump! Well... I have a sump growbed. All my GBs are CF. Works great!

hey they might have an import model for the US you can only ask..

But check which wheel's are on them..

Had a friend in the US get one of our sports model's.. Monroe but it came with the US issue wheels not the one he wanted.. Oz issue..

You can only ask...

And yes I have seen some of the Truck's Ute's you guy's have which to us would be a monster truck... VERY BIG..

Larry... it's known a s a Commodore VE SS V Ute in Australia... made in 2007...

It was supposed to have been released in the US about the same time... and even recently was rumoured that Chevrolet would... under the badge... "El Camino"

http://www.pickuptrucks.com/html/2011/c ... ohans.html

But Holden/GM.... here in OZ... canned the export program only weeks ago...

The V8 sports wagon was sold as the Pontiac 8 ....

I knew the pic of my ute would get some attention, for you yanks it's a Holden (GM) VY SS Utilitly vehicle. Think of a El Camino crossed with a Pontiac GTO. (Shape of a El Camino and almost everything from a 04 GTO) and it's a modified V8 too.... :headbang:

I'll finish the plumbing tomorrow and fill the grow beds with media, and if time purchase a pump.
