I have just added the reservoir after having to get the right valves sent out then the right connectors sent out but i have all ready seen enough to give me confidence that i will not need to top up for a few days yet maybe even 5 or 6 days. Not sure about 14 though in this heat! Great products. I just keep topping the reservoir up with the two part feed they send out. The refill packs are a great idea (having to reuse the original containers).
    Can you explain what yo mean by Grey valves ?
    The flat valves have white floats on mine

    NO ... not in this weather
    I have 2 tanks and the reservoir ......... the reservoir empties daily .... so would expect tanks to empty in about 3 days.

    One problem that can happen is that plant roots grow and warp around the valve and stop water flowing into tank.
    They should hav a horizontal baffle to keep valve away from roots
