That looks great! Very good tip that some might not think of regarding drilling with the barrel intact. This is going to be very interesting! ;-)

Nice job on the air pruning wicking barrel Milne. How high up the sides is the top hat grommet in relation to the irrigation pipe?

Thanks

Its 2.5 in or 55mm from the bottom the pipe is 3 in
Seeing its fed from the swirl filter sump that's 30 ft away when the sump is full theres up to 5 in water in each bed
I can adjust it at will
These beds are on the same plain as the larger wicking beds
That's the beauty of having a mate with a laser level

3 Pots in place 2 filled
Other shot shows how far they will be from the rest of the garden
Look along the path you can see them on the far left
These will be fed from the swirl filter sump

Just an ozito dirty water submersible pump
If ever using a submersible always go for a dirty water one then they can pass solids
And they don't suffer from pressure overloads
I learnt my lesson years ago
