    A couple of questions from newbie in NZ please?    I have just started a AP system using 8 x 100 litre 1/2 plastic barrels with bell siphons.  (only trialling with two barrel grow beds first)   Trouble is the syphon doesn't really take off when top water level reached? Just trickles out and then keeps running after system empty?  Both siphons worked well individually earlier. Both beds share one drain pipe?     
     I also thought it may have been the bell siphon design? possibly too greater distance between the top of the fixed drain pipe and the top of the bell siphon.  (was about 100mm gap)  I lowered the siphon pipe so a gap of only 25mm inside the tube?   no real difference.   The other 'issue' is that the clay in the grow beds moves up and down so much with the water that the plants seem to be moving to the middle or working their way out of the clay?   Does it eventually get water logged and stop floating up above the water?   Is that just a characteristic of a round shape?
