    Is plastic leaching a concern with the sump tank? Can you talk more about this topic in a future video? Thanks.

    The above video is for hydroponics. In the video, mention was made of an aquaponics video showing your version of a small completed system. Please advise the name of the video. Thank you.

    A couple Walmart plugs there kind of turned me off, but otherwise good DIY, thanks.

    I realize you want people to be excited with the music (ambiance) but its bit too overwhelming as others have stated.

    Build comments:

    1. You are less likely to tear the plastic with the hole saw if you run the blade backwards. Saw that one of the holes drilled by the saw had a good tear.

    2. Need to warn DIY's that those plastic bins distort a great deal and can fail even with 12 inches of water depth. So, if you get a deep bins, add a frame around it so that it doesn't rupture from the water. If you don't believe me, leave 12 inches of water in the "tank" for several weeks.

    3. I understand your concern for point of failure with fittings, byt I've never had problems with "quick-lok" type fittings on a 1/2" poly. Don't recommend compression fittings because you can't change it once its installed.

    Just my 2 cents. Great instruction for beginning DIY's

    I enjoyed watching and learning, but the music was so annoying! Please reconsider adding music to your tutorials.
