    I changed and cleaned the Rez and added pool shock, then I added h202 the following day. I gave them the aggressive strength GH 3 part trio. I want to get to the point where all I have to do is set it and forget it type of grow. I check the ph and stuff every other day. The food range is 1000ppms now it's down to 600 by the end of the week.

    Dude I flipped about a month ago but they were seeds and 3 ended up males... the last lone survivor female was cut Because I've been having a very rough start with hydro.

    Here's my new set up ... I wanna get a better bucket system because I keep having OVER FLOW in 1st bucket and UNDER FLOW in my last bucket. So one pretty much floods my closet and the other has barely to little water... my main problem is water levels don't stay leveled.

    1st. I changed was my Rez (18g tote --> 32g trash can).
    2nd. I put both water pumps in Rez for heat purposes.
    3rd. Set up pull pump after water chiller because it's way stronger then my push pump.

    after so many hours everything goes good then boom FLOOD. Maybe I'll try larger tubes / pvc pipe next time or try to add a over flow connector to the top of my buckets.

    Maybe the pipe on the cooler cant handle the amount of water your pushing via the pumps, creating a bottle neck, if you can dial it down a little and test.

    I concur with zypher, you have a bottleneck somewhere, probably the chiller. How hot the will the water get without the chiller? Are you running bennies? Water temps can get into 80's without a problem if you have bennies in water

    I completely restarted because of the water situation... I'm currently deciding on if I want my water levels inside my net pots or under... other then that it's another WILD WEED PACK OF SEEDS... so I'm starting these seeds while deciding on water levels... what do you guys do for water levels ?

    Grow space:
    Closet grow
    Temp highs 87 / lows 77
    Humidity highs 34 / lows 26
    Water temps 63 - 65f
    H202 120ml in Rez every 3 days
    Air stones (6 total)1 per pot & 2 in Rez
    GH floura trio (synthetics because fuck organics)
    Timers 18/6 veg 4-5 weeks & 12/12 flip 7-8 weeks.

    I like to keep my water temps low because I have BOTH water pumps in Rez plus I have a bad history with root rot.

    Easy solution, raise the bucket that's getting over flow to let gravity assist in getting back to the others.

    Did you upgrade from that 4w air pump?

    You absolutely do not need h2o2 at all if you're water temps are consistently below 70*. ESPECIALLY at 65*.

    Would the extra Oxygen help?
