    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...

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    There isn't a way to have the last cycle deliver a different amount than the previous cycles. You can however manually activate the feed pumps by going to the feed pump calibration tab and pressing the pump run buttons. You would have to do that every day though, it can't be automated. FYI, I...

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    You're going to have to experiment a little bit. I wouldn't assume that 3 gallons of Coco can hold 1.5 gallons of H2O. How well your coco was rinsed and the amount of pearlite will affect how much it can hold. First I would pick an interval that you are happy with. Next, pick an amount to...

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    If you're handy with a soldering iron they can be easily replaced. If one is inadvertently clogged, they are very easy to disassemble and clean. I'm going to be posting a video on how to do that soon. We always recommend using fully soluble nutrients to avoid clogging the feed pump module, and...

    floraflex bubblers uneven watering

    It's going to be at least 6 months, probably more like 9 before an 8 station will be available. We are working on how to deal with the waste runoff. For more than 4 plants, it doesn't make sense from a financial standpoint to use pumps to drain the drip trays. We are thinking about drip trays...

    floraflex bubblers uneven watering

    Uneven watering seems to be a common issue I see growers discussing. Our company offers a metered delivery system that delivers the exact amount that you set it to. Each station can have a different amount delivered (if wanted), and each station can have it's own nutrient reservoir to suit...

    DIY drip system DTW

    I understand how autopots work, but don't have any experience using them. When I grow drain to waste with coco, I check my runoff EC as a proxy for the EC at the root zone. If the correct amount of runoff isn't maintained, I have seen spikes in runoff EC. How are people who use autopots...

    DIY drip system DTW

    All right, you got me :) I should have said I personally haven't seen any commercial growers use them. I'm not here to bash anyone's equipment or method of growing. If it works for you and you get quality bud, great! I am partial to top feeding though :)

    DIY drip system DTW

    I would agree. Maybe they could work for certain situations, but in general, there are much better ways to irrigate your plants. Roots go where the water is. This picture is the void left from when a carrot was pulled out. The roots just wrapped around the carrot. It's much better to...

    GrowTek Drip Rings

    Hey, thanks for the feedback! If degradation of the wood stakes is a concern, we would be happy to include extras. Personally, in my coco grows, the stakes have held up fine. As for your comments @PJ Diaz , by no means am I saying these will work in every situation. Just like the Hydro Halos...

    Fertigation Manager Basic kit

    @bk78 I remember you saying that you might have some long runs from the pump module to your plants. I just tested the pumps with a 3 foot section of tubing on the output, and then with a 20 foot section on the output. With the 3 foot section, the pump moved 327 ml in a 10 second run. With the...

    Yes, you will see algae start to form inside the lines. My next production run I plan on going with a colored tube. The algae is unsightly, but I haven't noticed it affecting anything negatively. Even with a colored tubing, my guess is that there is still algae buildup. You just cant see it...

    BK’s shit show

    The one that bk78 is using is a metered delivery system. You have to provide a nutrient solution reservoir(s), and it uses 4 individual self priming pumps to deliver the nutrient solution to your plants via the drip rings you see above. It delivers the solution based on an interval. So, for...
