    the pond is a right royal mess.... its busy being refilled at the moment (since 1pm yesterday) so that we can see to what level it drops to know where the leak is...

    I was chatting to Kanga on the phone yesterday about perhaps converting it into a 19 000oddL rockpool system :D

    Sorry Guys,

    Had to move this. It's an interesting topic for its own thread.

    holy cow that'd be cool!!! guess you'd need a monster auto topup as well, what would the evaporation be on such a monster outside?

    I suppose the solenoid valve option would be more practical in the long run than having an topup container.
