Rooted! 

The Bell Siphons in the aquaponics system haven’t been draining properly of late.

That’s not so bad now it’s Summer, the extra water staying in the beds helps the plants out. It has been bugging me for a few days though, so I decided to take a look.

The pic shows the culprit. In number 3 bed, the tomatoes have made themselves more at home and have made their way into the siphon housing in search of new real estate.

A quick clean, then a few minutes wait and then the usual flushing sound of the siphon doing its job. Hooray!
