Re: [IP] Re: Paradigm



I've done both without any problems.  I used to change sites and resevoirs
every three days, and refilled the resevoir if I ran out.  I now change
sites every three days, and change the resevoir when ever it is empty (3-4
days).  I think refilling the resevoir more than once or twice might cause
problems.
