ok, that will be good, i assume you've read enough to place it properly.

as for the WC part, are you going dual loops or one really clean, distilled water loop?

I was going to use one loop with distilled water and a tablespoon or two of bleach to prevent and buildup in the acrylic parts

Just remember how much distilled you will go through. bit of advice: get a submersible pump of ebay, they're cheaper

How much water will it really eat through? I figured maybe like a gallon a day or so? If the water is evaporating really fast would tap water have the same ill effects as in a closed loop system?

A pump like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/80-GPH-Submersible-Pump-Aquarium-Fish-Tank-Powerhead-Fountain-Water-Hydroponic-/261032453285?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc6bf24a5?

I was thinking about putting in a T-line from the output of the reservoir before it feeds a standard WC pump that goes out the side or back of the case as a drain tube and a line to a separate larger reservoir so I could will from there and not the top of the case. The equilibrium of the water should keep it at the same level right?

i didn't quite get the last bit but:
1. similar pump, but that one's not powerful enough.
2. a few litres a day normal uses, maybe 10 a day if you're going 24/7.
3. the evap chamber is a res remember.

Can you link me to a pump that would be good enough please? Thanks for the help.

Ok so I might just have to go with tap water then, if i get copper blocks it shouldn't be any worse than normal plumbing.

I know but it will be difficult to add to and require a hose and funnel most likely, so I was thinking about rigging up something like this:

except where one of the tubes is the resivoir and then annother one is the evap chamber, if that makes sense. It would probably be some sort of bucket or something for now to be honest.

1. for the evap chamber, any pump above 1m head and 700 LPH will be good. for the blocks you would need at least 2M head and 600LPH flow.
2. if you go single loop you will have to clean the blocks every month.
3. the res would also work if you made an L shape of acrylic, around the front (evap) and bottom (res).

Alright I have the wood nearly completed, all that remains to be done is to clean up the holes for motherboard and PSU

The Evap will have to wait a bit mad.gif

but here are some pictures
