For Fred, about watering system
You had mentioned some time ago about your watering system using a 5 gallon bucket with a pump and end of a garden sprayer. I'm thinking I want to cobble one together too. So here are some questions for you:
What size pump are you using? My choices are between an aquarium pump and a fountain pump. I assume you use a pump that has a flow control, yes?
In looking at the 'handle kits' at Lowe's, and at all the handles on the sprayers, I find that the end doesn't just screw off. Did you cut off the tip?
When you have the pump on, do you get any significant pressure buildup that cuts loose when you release the handle to fill the reservoir?
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge, Fred. And if anyone else has some ideas, please jump on in here.
