    I am building your rdwc. In one of your comments, you stated that you had issues with the roots blocking water return to your reservoir.
    That said, if you had to offer any advice, is there anything different that you would do vis-à-vis design/build?

    I thank you for teaching me how to become a better grower!
    Cheers!
