    Fertigation manager system

    This is how I like to grow...I'm a tech guy who loves cannabis....what do you expect? I kept this system as simple as I could while still having it perform how I want it to perform. That's how I keep it simple :)

    Fertigation manager system

    That was me :) I was pretty happy with the 8 oz I pulled off of those two plants. It was kind of a pain in the ass though....I won't be doing solo cup grows for a while.

    Are you asking how it would work in a commercial grow-op?

    floraflex bubblers uneven watering

    A quality moisture content sensor would add significant costs to this system. Sure, a cheap one can be had for $10, but they are garbage. My personal grows with this system, I fertigate 6 times a day (depending on the stage of growth) in 1 gallon containers. This keeps my moisture content...

    Automating a Grow Room / Rooms

    I am no expert grower...I know more about automation and electronics than growing :) I think most people that have recirculating systems change out their reservoirs periodically because of the reason stated in that video I referenced.....but I could be wrong.

    Automating a Grow Room / Rooms

    @Has If you have runoff, that means the media is 100% saturated and can hold no more water/nutrient solution. When growing in coco you always want to maintain at least 90% saturation, and you also want to maintain 15-30% runoff after every irrigation event depending on the size of container and...

    Automating a Grow Room / Rooms

    @Has Scale based systems are very accurate. Our system can weigh runoff after an irrigation event down to 1 gram resolution. Also, the majority of home growers will see much better results top watering with runoff than using an autopot type system that floods from the bottom. If you're...

    BK’s shit show

    Yeah, you're defiantly going to need to switch those out :) I'm going to redesign the rings soon so the inner ring is about 2.5 in diameter. The current design is 1.75 in diameter.

    Siphon won't break on pressurized system, discharge going one floor below

    I'm not sure of your exact setup, but if it's similar to this video, a check valve would work for you.

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    Although, if you wanted/needed the flexibility to send differing amounts to each plant like our system can, you would need to multiply what you spent by four. So, $15 for the timer, probably minimum $15 for a power supply, and then whatever you spent on the pump ($10-30?). Then you would need...

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    You, sir, are quite crafty :) That would do the trick. I really designed this system to use the scales. I didn't think anyone would want to use it in a different way. If it turns out that the FM basic kit is more popular, I can create a new firmware program that will be tailored more to how...
