When you have a fish tank and you clean it the dirty water usually gets dumped outside. But did you know, it is fertilizing the ground you put it on. The filter the same thing, when you rinse it out all the yucky stuff on it the plants love. And with my pump every time the power goes off i have to refill it. So I wanted to try something else, here is my experiment.
I removed the filter pump and put a little water pump any small one will work.
