The Salad Bar?
Is this one of your designs Murray?

Pretty sad copy I would say. But a complement really, looks like they are finally waking up to the fact that poly just does not cut it in the long run.

It looks like one of your tanks on a forced diet! Much skinnier I think and smaller volume capacity...
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! :oops:
and yes if you can afford it - Fibre Glass is the way to go.

I am being nice FF, It is, at best a very poor knock off of our Balcony kit.
That is just the way it is.......not that we have a patent or anything.
It will actually improve our sales. The more product there is out there for people to make a choice, the better.

They tend to stick with the older method of fast fill and slow drain which works very well , but that method needs a timer or float switches to make the flood and drain cycle happen. I became disenchanted with timers after the fifth one failed. We did source an excellent timer at a reasonable price from the USA, but that source dried up when the World Economic Crash happened September 12 months ago.
Get rid of possible fail points is good design I believe......now if we could only find a way to do away with the pump !!!! :)

I'll have to say that I've not encountered any timer failures as yet... in either my own systems... or any of the BYAP kit systems I've installed...
And really the failure of a timer doesn't represent a critical issue... as long as there is sufficient aeration with an air pump, most systems will survive for long enough to replace a timer.... or can be switched to manual/always on in the interim...
Neither have I had a problem with float switches, although others have... and particularly in a sump... this can be a critical point of failure....
The obvious answer ... is of course... to eliminate the sump and additional pump.... ;)
