Is really necesary the overflow tube in the Dutch Bucket System??
Hi everyone. I started to build my own Dutch Bucket System. I tested the owerflow tube (a inverted "U") that works like a syphon. When the water reaches a determined level, this tube suck out almost all the liquid.
My owerflow tube works well, but I realized that using a drip system, the inverted "U" donÂ´t work, because itÂ´s necesary to add a big quantity of water to make the syphon work, and the drip system provide little water to make the syphon effect.
So I think that itÂ´s not necesary to adapt a inverted "U", a simple tube is enough to discharge water excess, when using drip system.
What do you think?
