Looks great so far.

Thanks both! Yea I did some more research on it and I will probably use something else. If I don't plan on replacing the land substrate in 5 years it may break down. It is of organic composition and will degrade. I will look around today at HD or Lowes for some fine polyester based screen.

I dont think it would hurt to add more silicone just in case, and maybe do a test with your liner that substrate doesnt leak through I can't imagine it'll be too bad especially when your abg is wet and more compact
I will certainly be adding some silicone. I guess my worry was not being able to get access under the false bottom for some reason. I guess that's not really something I would ever need.
