Nice formation! I love the protrusions/peninsulas making the internal negative space. I personally would have it a touch taller, but it looks great!
Thank you! Believe it not, I'm out of rock!! All ~160lbs in there. I'm going to try to play jenga to build up the right "mountain" a little more. I could stack rock 7 ways till Sunday on the table, but it was a new ball game doing it in the tank.

Pictures aren't really doing the cave feature justice

Little more rock play, then pinning. After that it's time to get this tank wet! 20190811_095548.jpg

For sure it's always tougher inside the tank, and a bit surprising that you've got 160 lbs; definitely doesn't look it. It'd be nice to get the cave a bit more pronounced, but still looking good overall, imo.

WOOOOOOO!!!!! Wet tank AND a taller right side? I mean. Come ON. Totally awesome. Make water faster.
I don't trust the float valve in my rodi tank. It's worked once and failed once...

I ordered a solenoid, but accidentily bought a 24v AC relay instead of DC. So I'm stuck only making water while I'm at home @ 75g/day. Hopefully can make enough tonight to get the system running. I don't like the water sitting still.

I prefer the "lever" float valves for this purpose. I find them to be more reliable then the vertical up and down types. I also use 2, and a timer. I know how long it takes my RO to fill the tank, so if it runs for 5 min longer then that, the controller will automatically shut it off and send me an email. I have to manually reset the alarm in order for the RO unit to run again.

other then that, wicked cool install. love the attention to detail. warms my little engineering heart.

Can't beat the reliability of redundency! It won't be as much of an issue after this initial fill, but the less I have to fiddle, the better. And thank you so much from one engineer to another :)
