I just bought a standard one, but not a cheapy, sadly it's non adjustable, but i can easily fix that, just make sure you have it set to the right level which is easy.I'm so scared of adding a float valve. I really need to on both of my systems. I'm just dont know which ones are good, yet cheap. I imagine I'd need a metal one just incase. My floor is carpet and insulated. I gotta be extra careful. Any suggestions?
Dummy fit your net pot where you know it's going to sit, aim your valve around an inch below that and your good to go, it will keep every single bucket/tote at exactly the same level.
How you think i felt when i built mine, i was like "Fuck i hope this works"
It's easier than you think, once you've done it you'll be kicking yourself you didn't do it earlier.
I've noticed this system deals with higher water temps really well also, but i have massive aeration from the pump and a rapid cycle, so I'm getting away without a chiller for now which is great...but i want one soon.
