Cut to 5.5ft long. Cut it with a skill saw, let's just say there is a better way lol. Still good though. They were 2x8

I recently used 85% P acid to bring down my alk. 344 before 144 after. But my ppms didnt change chemicaly speaking do you know why my ppms didnt go down? I tried to google it but to no avail

Ok so Sunday as promised pics. Well life fucked with everything so this is as far as i made it today. 2x3s for the frame cut. Corrugated roof panels cut. Condensate pump taken out of the box lol... yup thats it. Beans will see water as soon as the table is done and I just need to plumb the autofeed. Until then here is some pretty pics to look at lol.
I bought the same corrugated roofing panels with you a few weeks ago (also learned from Dirtbag) but now after using it for a period of time, I find that after watering the shape of corrugated roofing panels changed, leading to drainage problems.
By the way, welcome back

My guess is all the acid bonded with alkaline molecules and the only byproduct was water or some gas.

Ppms should have went up slightly unless there was precipitate. Ppm basically measure the amount of dissovled solids in a solution. So alkalinity will contribute to the ppm but so will the phosphoric acid.

Alkalinity is the measurement of alkaline sources dissolved in a solution and when you add acid the alkaline sources react with the acid essentially neutralizing some of the acid and alkaline sources and the reaction lowers the alkalinity. But both are still dissolved in water and count towards ppm

I use tin snips or even bonsai shears to cut across the waves, any strong sharp scissor will cut the thin plastic. Honestly you could just use regular scissors if you have strong hands lol. And i score it with a knife and snap it by bending it to trim along the ridges.
just turn your saw blade around on your saw mate,still loud as hell but will cut the steel with ease,just dont forget to turn back around before you start sawing some wood hahah

Did you put it on anything? Mine is screwed to 1x6 deck panels to give it rigidity. On its own its too flimsy for sure, at least the stuff i have is. But screwed to a board its, well, stiff as a board.

Ok auto drain hooked up and tested... now just need to run to the drain. Seeds will likely see water tonight.

Did the table as low profile as I could to keep the limited height I have.

Hey bro, chair pulled up, that power connection looks too low, raise it above water level if not already 👍
Yeah nothing is done here I need to make some permanent changes. Just wanted a test run. Definitely will hang that power bar and cords.
