Day 87 from seed and these girls are having their first night on 12/12 and will soon be ladies.
Your line in the bottom of your buckets are to small. 2" at least it will equlize your flow. I run 3"A bit of advice for anyone reading this who wants to do something similar.
Turn off the pump and let the buckets equalize before filling to your chosen water level. As you can see in this following picture I have a line drawn where my water level is at its maximum.
I can top up my reservoir to this level only when the pump is off. Once the pump goes back on, this water level will drop quite a lot(as seen in the above picture). If you tried filling the reservoir whilst the pump is on, you would end up putting too much water in and you know what will happen.
