I've got a gravity system with 15 gallon pots. Love it but they're heavy. I'm in good shape now, but some day my back won't let me do what I now do. The biggest strain is cleaning (moving pots around, etc.). So I'm wondering if you guys have some tips. I suppose that the more I could "clean-in-place", the better off I would be. I would need pumps I guess. Use ladders more. Maybe I'll need to replace the gravity with a flat frame. Maybe get a young son, grandson, or nephew to do the grunt work. I'm just wondering if you've found something that really worked for you, and didn't cost "5 figures".
On another note: I'm so thankful for all of you, this forum, you who have worked so hard to put it together and maintain it. This is the best hobby I have ever found, and this fraternity makes it so much more rewarding. Where else can a schmuck like me "toss" a question out there, and "know" I'm not only going to get a response, but several, from all around the country, even the world, and the responses will be intelligent, thoughtful, and will increase my knowledge and perspective. May God bless all of you, your families, and your endeavors.
