    It's like passive aggressive reporting. Just give people the dirt, on dirt farming, and leave out the inferior method, if so pro-ground growing.

    No40 electric conduit lasts longer in uv. So paint or cover PVC if you use that or it will degrade.

  • mikeygreenman 2 weeks ago

    Great info !! thanks. Voice work would be good. . Unfortunately your voice is very monotonous and it gets very hard to listen to it much after a few minutes if less. If you learn some "coloring " and stop trying to do the radio announcer voice It will benefit your videos greatly !! Also you say wayyy too much and it becomes over whelming. Whats between the words is just as important to how much you want to hear your own voice. just some friendly advice from another perspective.

    I wonder if going fully DC would be beneficial. You can get DC pumps from boat supplies, bilge pumps and such. Times can be DC as well as is micro electronics like pic logic controllers if you were to automate the system. The money you save on not having to buy inverter could be better invested in bigger battery network.

    Hi awesome. May I know where did you buy the complete solar part of the system.


  • collegesynewave 2 weeks ago

    Makes a lot of sense,the excess power could also be used by extractor fans connected to a thermostat to create the desired requirements needed for control of air temperature of say a greenhouse or poly tunnel, this power could also used to regulate the water temperature for the fish.

    Try 12v pumps. they're more expensive but it would be about the same price without the inverter.
