Sorry for the losses. We're certainly not used to rain this time our season in northern New Mexico, let alone hail. Hail is heartbreaking no matter when it happens. Knowing that you just replaced the high-tunnel cover makes it hurt more.

It does sound kind of Latin to me... but the fact that the rest of the certificate isn't in Latin and Google only takes a second to search millions of pages kind of made it questionable =)

I'll message you my address so you can send me my half-off coupon for helping fix typos (- the s)... =)

Time for everyone's favorite game, whack-a-koi......
Image

Image

Today I thought I'd get something accomplished. Instead, when changing water I thought I'd agitate the media to knock things off. Well, things were going great and I got a bit overzealous and knocked my screen off the outlet and started sucking media. Got things balanced and situated to where I did not have to remove all of the media to make my fix. Barrel was knocked over and I had to clean it up, rinse off, and still picking out vegetation and debris.

Then I spent the next few hours trying to get a center drain to pull enough with my current configuration. As much time as I spent messing with, I could have punched a hole in the bottom, make my stand pipe, bulkhead, and plumb back into my radial flowfilter.

Airstones arriving shortly and can start moving forward again instead of backwards.

So, cleaned up my mess. Broke down the grow bed. Got ready to build MBBR. All was cruising along until I used the wrong hole saw. Went down hill from there. Let's just say I no longer need a hole saw b/c I can cut it with a jig saw.

Good news is, tore everything apart and tired of trying to make something work. Rebuilding all my filters with proper bulkhead and going to tie proper 1.5" drains together to dump into mineralization tank.

I just got inside and Alb tomorrow, so any daytime pics will have to wait until Friday.

It is a big mess.....but it is rigged to the hilt for the time being....

Yesterday, could not see 6" down. And now this! Image

This was my SUP and only had a 3/4" outlet and was not going to work with my plan. Being that I have ability now with jig saw, going to enlarge and put 1.5" fitting.
Image

This is going to be my MBBR, but right now, it is my SUP/MBBF. 1.5" drain in bottom is outlet and seems to be working at removing/breaking things down.
Image

Image

Once I figure out my elevations, will get everything plumbed back in.
Image

Storm dented chimney pipe right on seam and was allowing water to come inside :O, also have to re-do my weather seal around recently installed window b/c the hail punched holes through that as well.

Seem to be going backwards and not making any headway......

In light of things, I did have another A-ha momment to figure out which piece of the puzzle allowed me to set the FT water height at a level that still allowed me to capture debris from surface, albeit not in the center, and put 9.6GPM to the soon to be SUP.

Kind of backwards, but I am about to flip my system around. In trying to make my greenhouse within a greenhouse, I need ti shorten my overall length by 6' to be able to use an old greenhouse film cover.

Ill come out and discharge to the right and then go from there.

To dark for pictures, but several things taking place in the morning.

I did manage to get my MBBR boiling nicely and even hypnotic to watch.....

With the tank clarity, you mention you could only see 6" in, but the next day you could see the bottom. What do you find the best method is for getting murky water clear again fast? Is it best to let it settle or to pump more? Love your work, though. Greenhouse in a greenhouse is a great idea!

When we spoke I didn't know so many systems had given you a rough time. Sorry. For some reason now that I am down for the count I dream of the days when I could scramble to solve problems, then stuff like this happens and I can better face the reality that retrofitting, rethinking and redoing issues wasn't a lot of fun. Best of luck to you.

Probably had something to do with the temporary way I had things plumbed. The only change I had was the SUF being put onto my ST with discharge from above.

I had also added a maintenance dose of bacteria since the system was on the fourth week and maybe between the two, tank is now cycled? :whoknows:

I just know that (famous last words), I shall never revamp a system with livestock contained in the system. Every thing I have tried to do has been kept in check by the missus keeping an eye on her koi.

One trapped in the overflow pipe (saved).

One tried to become a salmon and swim down the configuration (at the time) for my bottom drain and then got cut in half by the gate valve. Don't know how long it had been there, but was still alive but in two pieces (lost)

Poor fish and wife.
Nell has been a great help with our floor measurements. All I needed to do was let her do it. She approaches projects quite differently than I do. She has it figured out and we are glad I could put my micromanaging to rest. :laughing3:

Great! Are you able to see any significant changes in those areas that are obvious?

Yes in the second room we did there is a corner with a 3/8ths' difference under par as well as the highest point so far at 1/4 over par. This is in the master bedroom. The first room yielded only an 1/8th inch difference. Still to do is the powder room. Today we can get some self leveling cement mix to fix the low spot. She's also double checked the square footage which is under the square feet of tile we have. Six hundred thirty seven sf.
