This is where the sump is going, between two 22,000 litre rain water tanks. That is what I call a good supply for the system.


I dont see two water tanks - I see two fish tanks.

Do you find that 2 x 22000 litre tanks are enough or do you have some more tanks hidden somewhere else?

Have another 22000 litre polly tank which those two pump too and has the house pump connected to. The original 22000 litre concrete tank at the house I only use for emergency and if full and required I pump down to the centre tank.( House pump tank)

Morning Ron will not be lined the same as the sump tank and grow bed but may use a carpet underlay wrapped around if needed

I would be concerned about the zinc in the galvanizing harming the fish.

These are the fittings for the tank, 90mm uniseal for SLO. There were two brass tank fittings in there which I am replacing with poly fittings. The bottom one will have a valve for drainage and the top one just plugged.
