Looks like some good plans to me. What will the fermentation jug be used for? I'm not familiar with that. Will you be plumbing with 1/2"to 1" piping or larger?

hehehe the fermentation jug is for wine to go with the fish and veggies. I'm going to use a 2" Slo from FT to RFF then 1 1/2 (not really sure yet) from RFF to GB's. the 2" maybe overkill for now but I'm certain I'll be going larger soon, in fact I havn't even got this one running and already thinking about what I want to do come spring.

Looks great Chris! Have you started any construction on the system itself yet?

Did more today, hooking up the pump and drain lines. I posted a question RFF question about plumbing the inlet to RFF but no response, I did look every where else before I asked the question. another question, is it ok to glue the pvc together with normal pvc glue?

how large is your sump ? If you have pump in sump then maybe that sump is a bit small to have GB volume + safety volume for pump ?

I don't know about all types of PVC glue, but there are certainly glues and primers that are safe for potable water.

Best to only glue what you have to, like pipes with pressure in them or buried pipes. That way you can fiddle some more once you have a brain wave.

pump is a 1000 gph, at 6ft head it's pumping less than 800 gallons and its adjustable. yes, I researched and earthbound said glue the under parts so I'm going to glue those if I must, going to do another test run for leaks after I get the ones fixed from todays run. Homemade bulkheads, they work but need attention to detail.

I answered your RFF question just now :-P sorry I didn't see it before, food poisoning = Mel not online much. With the piping, I'd glue things into sections leaving joints you might have to undo to clean or move things free, and then fasten those joints with a little stainless steel screw. That way they can't get bumped out of place accidentally, but you can still dismantle stuff when you need to.

There never can be too many pictures! Looking great. You can't hide the fact that your from Mississippi with all the love bugs! Wish I could make homemade bulk heads to work like yours. Tried on two different occasions but instead of one leak , they all leaked!

They aren't so much, homemade I say that because there not the fancy ones what I use is just 2" threaded pipe with metal locknuts and O rings.

File comment: my stand pipe sticks up so high so I can get hold of it if I need to drain, it is half cut into at 12". The larger 3" pipe protecting my stand pipe is drilled to draw water from the bottom 6" down. the bottom 10" are red lava and the top is river pebbles.

My pH went to 8-8.2 when I added red lava rocks and river pebbles
