Default Water testing

There's tap water in tank. I've been testing the function of my closed loops and chasing leaks. So far, so good. It seems that I will have to make some modification to my gate valves on the overflows....but that's minor.

Default Very nice journal

Very very well done. I am truly impressed by your foresight and your layout and planning. Love your journal as well with the room layout, then the containers in, then the walls, electrial etc etc.

You mentioned you need some modification to your gate valves on your overflow. Can you elaborate?

Where did you get the 90 degree metal brackets for your front and side ramps?

I see an air duct in ceiling - does this goes into your house's furnace air return? If so, any consideration to venting the air directly out of the house? In my setup, I am looking to install a dehumistat on my fan to vent moist air directly out of the house when the relative humidity gets too high.

great job.

Just an idea to keep the doors from crashing on your head....... How bout those hydraulic "struts" that vehicles use to hold the rear glass or tailgates up? (can ya tell I'm a mechanic?)
