Lost pump on hydro buckets
We had thunder storms last night with mild winds. Went out this morning to check all systems and found the feed line on bucket one plugged up. Turn the pump off, so that I could remove the 1/4 inch feed line. After cleaning the line out and replacing it. Turn the pump back on and nothing. The pump was dead. Luckly I had a spare pump on hand, so I quickly switch out the pump. This should teach me and those reading this blog, that all systems should really have two pumps running in parallel. In case one fails. Also one pump could be configure as a mixing pump when adding nutrients to the tank.
