I hang my pump with a bungie cord from my basement ceiling. It does make some noise. I have been told that this design is the best compost brewer design. KIS organics had Tim Wilson (Microbeman on other forums) on the podcast. It was a great listen.
I highly recommend.

Aloha @Tommy_McCain Thanks for the great info. May I ask what the power consumption on the air pump is? Would you know how much Watts it runs on? Could you give me the amps? Thanks in advance.

That’s sick! How big is that bank? How many Kw you got in panels? I’m interested in your wifi relay setup. You got WiFi at your grow spot?

@Rhino_buddy. It’s a small system only about 1kw in battery storage and 280 watts worth of panels. I’m gonna end up changing it again soon.

Here’s a pics of a smaller system. 24hr supplemental light power.
Unfinished in picture but it was finished later but no pic.

While you’re here I have a question.

I found an active aqua 1100 gpm for 54.17 locally. It should allow me to do 20 gallons later if I want to. I plan to make that airlift design. It’s looks pretty simple, and if it works the best, heck.

I could brew in the garage, but it’s cold enough now, I’m not sure how fast the micro life would multiply. The rest of the year would be great though.

Active aqua is the brand I have didn’t think that sounded right the first one I mentioned ya you need good air for the airlift to work well enough so you’d be golden with that one !

I know that there standing credit with locals here is crap. My friend was growing for 30 years here and we had a discussion about that company years ago. We believe that there selling lies. My friend said he knows nothing of Hawaiian Elephant, I asked him a few days ago.

Yea that’s a questionable company for sure. Pakalolo Seeds from Molokai Hawaii got some good genetics.
