Start with a few Sun Tea jars (1 gallon)
Remove the pour spouts
For each Bunk, You will need
a cap, a Tee, and 2 pices of 1/2″ CPVC pipe 2.5″ long
Assemble as shown. the 1/2″ CPVC pipe fits in the bushing w/o silicone. The Cap is needed to keep my bettas from entering the pipe, but don’t forget to drill a few small holes in the cap to let water in & out.
When you have one ready, assemble groups of 3.
At the end you will need a valve and a barb 1/2″ tubing fitting
Keep adding bunks untill your shelves are full. I got 21 on this 6′ shelf unit.
I run the 1/2″ tubing to my drain but you can use a flower bed Open the valve and all 21 jars drain down to 2″ and stop. Then hook up the tubing to a small submersable pump in my aged water barrel And fill all 21 jars with new water in a few minutes.
