Thinking it's time for me to build a SWM. Have looked online and found a few sets of plans...the concept and designs seem pretty straight forward. I'm looking for "do's and don'ts" recommendations and input of any kind that you think may be helpful. What you have found works best, or doesn't work for filtering/straining, catch container, etc. etc. Any and all input appreciated.
I just use a black plastic tub. I've made up a screened timber frame that fits inside it and I put a glass window over the top.
Do a search on Youtube for Pop's Shack. You'll find my channel, along with videos of my solar wax melter. It cost me about $30 to make.
