bl0nd3 Posted December 28, 2014 Report Share Posted December 28, 2014 Hey Fellow growers, hope you all had a merry christmas!! Im still yet to create a proper setup, for now im just going with the flow, but I want to create a system setup, and I have an idea I wanted to run by other users who would have more experience and would be able to let me know if the design would work before I go purchasing all the parts etc. *my main requirement is to have the ability to move my plants from inside at night, to outside in the sun during the day. So one bucket per plant is probably required, as i cant see little 5 foot, 42kg me lifting a large tub full of water with multiple plants. Also important is shut off/ closure valves (I think thats what they are called, iv never done any irrigation or retic before so any correction would help when it comes to buying the parts ) *i like the idea of using the air rocks to add oxygen to the nutrient solution. *I like the idea of constant flow through the buckets. - i see their are numerous setups, many with different names such as ebb and flow, DWC, floating, Heres an idea of the type of setup I want to make but im curious to know about how the water flow works - will a pump be required in each bucket, and if the plants will require a feed from above the root surface (so a drip feeder aswell as the circulating water below), or if the circulating water is enough to feed the plants? I read the thread " a simple circulating system" thats pinned and while it looks awesome, i would prefer to have just one water tank with the air stone and pump, is their any reason why i would need two seperate tanks? Also regarding bucket size, is it a negative thing when the roots become bunched up, as seen here? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
