Looking good glad to passed the goopies now let’s c these girls explode
I've decided the reoccurring funkiness came from the feed line from the RO. There were two places that weren't shielded from the light. Apparently shit grew there, which dribbled into the res. throughout the day from the float valve.
I think the biggest lesson for me was not to take things for granted. Double check everything. I've run this thing with net posts missing and all kinds of light streaming in both in the tubs and res. I think I'll quit that. It's a humbling experience. I thought I had this growing thing on lock. I sorta feel like I'm starting over now. This isn't a bad thing, maybe I deserve itDamn, this is going to make me paranoid now! I may wrap all my pipe and shit just to be safe!
Glad you found the source, and I don't know about anyone else but I've learned a valuable lesson: Even a little bit of light somewhere can fuck shit up.

It dig tweeking the contraption. I work as a Design Engineer, and once and a while as a Manufacturing Engineer. A Manufacturing Engineer spends his days streamlining production lines and coming up with gizmos that make life easier to run them. But clearly sometimes it's harder than others to see the root cause of an issue.I feel ya. I'm in the process of blowing up my original RDWC design and going for something more simple and traditional. Mainly for the maintenance aspect, but it still sucks when you find out something you've put so much time into had a couple underlying, fatal flaws.
I'm gonna put two chick legs on the door to bless all that enterBut! But!
Will there be chicken in the new thread?
I know exactly what you mean about fresh starts. I did the same on my secondary tent, and would be nice to do it for my primary too. LOL
I've certainly learned a lot from this too, and definitely a lot of good food for thought in here. SOG isn't really my cup of tea either, but at some point I might give it a go in my "lab" tent, just for the hell of it. Depends on if I end up keeping any mothers or not. If I do, I'll have to set up a mother space as I lent my setup for that out for someone in need to get started.
Got the lighting and all that, just need a tent/cabinet/whatever.
