Question about drain hole.
Does it make any difference that the drainhole is open to air?

Is evaporation through the drain hole or bugs, etc., even a concern?



Regarding the height of the drain hole-by having a flexible tube or rigid tube with an elbow sealed to the drainage hole in your container, you can raise or lower the draining level simply by raising or lowering the output of the tube. This makes it easy to vary the drainage level to whatever height is appropriate. I could set up a demonstration if you wish.
