Very cool! So are the lines going from the barrels to the tanks gravity fed?

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.

Yes the 3 return lines are all gravity feed with a gravity rated solenoid and some float switches controlling everything.

Very cool! You could hook up another tank in direct sunlight that just grows green water and pump it into the other 3 and it could be a fully self sustaining ecosystem!

That would be great! I don't get much sunlight at that window so instead I use 3 18" T5s that are on 24/7. I also wish I could have a rain barrel to feed the ATO so no one would need to add water.
