“Wow. This is such an awesome system. What did you use for that rigid tube? What industry is that pipe used in? I also love your fill level indicator. Your fellow Germans and other Europeans I’m sure will be very excited to learn about some of the equipment you used. Will you please consider contributing your sourcing information to the german translation of the windowfarms instructions?
