STOP! If you have just arrived at this website looking for a top feed drip hydroponics system, you might want to go back to page one of this mini-farm plan.
NOW, carry on building this baby!
14. Push one end of the 6 foot ½ inch irrigation tubing onto the outlet port
of the pond pump. If it fits too loose, you must secure it with a zip tie so it
doesn't come off during assembly and operation. First push the pump electrical
plug up through the bottom of the reservoir lid, then the ½” irrigation tubing
through the same hole. See photos below.
15. Now set the frame up where you want your garden to reside permanently. Assemble the two black elbow pieces that come with each Bato bucket so it forms a “U”. Then push it forcefully over the drain hole in the bottom of the bucket, until it snaps down completely and the barbs exit the bottom hole. This takes some force.
Make sure the barbs go through completely or the bucket will not drain properly. (Can't stress this point too much, took me a while to figure this one out). Now put the buckets in place, with the drain elbows extending down into the drain holes you drilled into the PVC pipe.
