    Enjoyed your video especially as I have a Snake Bubble (SB) brewer too! I use mine with a 45 gal Earthways Rain Barrel and love it! I clip my compost bag on the ring on the SB per the TeaLabs video, that pulls it and weighs it down in water once it is running. I think I have the same pump too (element 1750 gal/hr). Mine gets pretty hot after running for a while and it does concern me a bit. Does yours? My rain barrel has a low hose connector and a higher spigot. I tried using the hose on my garden but the pressure was pretty low. My slope from barrel to garden is not great so I need to come up with a better pumping system. My goal is to use the tea on our ~1 acre lawn so it has to be faster. Thanks again. I always enjoy watching you and your various projects!

    You know, I had the same concern about the pump being hot. I guess that’s the way they are. I thought about using a simple electric pump to pump the tea out quick, and I think that’s a good idea if you’re spraying trees or a lawn, but for my vegetable garden I just gravity feed into five gallon buckets. It takes me 12 bucket loads, but I can dump one while the other is filling. It takes about 40 minutes. Thank you so much for watching.
