I have been combing through the forum checking out all different types of grows to figure out exactly how I want to redo my room. Right now I am using totes and they work great but resevoir changes are a pain as well as adding water and I want to do something more efficient and user friendly. My shed is 8x12. With a wall dividing the front of the shed from the grow room. My grow room is 8x8 and is divided in half, so each side is 4 feet wide by 8 feet long. So we're working with two 4x8 rooms. I'm going to do the same type of setup on each side. I have been interested in flood and drain tables, but I am worried that having water on the table exposed to the light above will lead to algea and other problems, even if it is just leftover after flooding..so I kept thinking.. I saw Tiger's scrog grow and it got me thinking about building my own tables, but I still don't want to do flood and drain really. What I came up with: I want to build an L shaped table, about 3 feet off the ground, 2 feet wide (from the wall) and have holes cut out evenly to recess 5 gallon buckets through. I plan on drip feeding from the top. At the bottom of the buckets I will add a main pvc drain that connects all the buckets and Lets them drain (gravity) back to the resevoir underneath. Instead of growing in these buckets directly, I thought it would be good to place a 5 gallon bucket inside each bucket. This top 5 gallon would hold the plant in the medium, and drain through to the bottom bucket, back to the resevoir. With it this way, no water would be exposed to any light. Also, plants would be very easy to move to flower room one at a time to maintain a perpetual cycle. At the end of the table on the short side of the L shape, I would have a small Rubbermaid or something of the sort recessed into the table for starting clones or what have you. This would also have a drain that tied in going back to the resevoir. I haven't quite figured this part out completely, but it will be something of the sort. With that said, is there anything I am overlooking? My sketch is very basic, but I think it gets the point across. If anyone has any input or ideas that may help me in building this it would be greatly appreciated! stay smokin'
