Oily Film

by jeff
(western NC)

I have a NFT system that uses 4in HDPE pipe. The roots on several of my plants have gotten quite large which swells the water up to about 2 inches. Today I looked at the water level and it has an oily film on the top of it. Any thoughts?
thanks jeff

Are you on city water? If you can, check out a toilet that is left without flushing for awhile. You'll get a oily ring around the bowl. DAH, the water treatment has additives that are petroleum base.

Either that or somehow you have contaminated your reservoir.
