I'm trying out making Aerated compost Tea for the first time and I've done some reading to get a god idea of what to do. Now, I don't have any money to put towards making it so I've had to make due with what I've got. I've got a 5 gallon trash can full of water and compost (silly me forgot to put it in a sack, so I'll have to strain it once finished, and forgot to use water without chlorine or flouride) and an aquarium pump. Now, this isn't an air pump, its the kind for filtering the water. It sucks up the water and then waterfalls it back into the tank. I took out the filter, since it's probably 10 years old, and threw in some lava roks as they add oxygen to the water when it runs through them. I've got it runniing in our open garage now, sealed with trash bags since I have no lid for it and it's chrning away.
Am I going to get good ACT or should I start over? It'll be a while before I can buy a pump, but everythign else I can have ready again by tommorrow to start fresh.
