  2. I’ve got a suggestion for you on the leaking sump tank. If you find the
    need to remove the sump tank again. Purchase a product called JB Weld. it’s
    inexpensive and easy to work with. Set your tank up on a couple of saw
    horses and lay underneath so you can see all of the little pin holes. The
    JB Weld is like a paste, so just smear some of it on the holes with your
    finger, let it set up for a few hours, and it should be water tight again.

  3. Thanks. I do have two hop plants in the aquaculture bed for beer making.
    Your idea is a good one to have couple small ropes just hoist it up and up
    to the top .. let it down when harvest time! Great idea, I will probably do

  6. Appreciate the video. I learned alot. I was at a permaculture course a
    couple weeks ago. This fella grew his hops up a metal line on the side of
    his 2 story house. Said he would get over 2 lbs of hops from each 20 ft
    section. His point was that you can make your garden more 3d. Wonder how
    hopes would grow going up to the top of your greenhouse. Maybe have a
    pulley at the top so when it was time to harvest you could let out the
    slack and harvest the crop from one standing.

  7. Could you use roofing tar to coat the inside of your tanks? Seal it and
    waterproof everything. I have seen it in a spray can, ads on tv and I know
    Home Depot has it. Just for the area you need to cover, the spray cans
    would cost a small fortune.

  9. Thats a good idea I thought about it to. But it would put oil into the
    system. I bought a pond liner for that tank and will install it this
    weekend if I can find the time. Thanks for the advice though, its a good
