DIY Hydro Flood/Drain / Ebb/Flow Unit ~

Recommended Posts

Lookin' good TW!  I was just looking at small flood table ideas on google, and then you post this!  Yeah buddy!

 

Is the weight of the top tub going to bulge out  the sides of the res tub?  How thick is the material the tubs are made of?


You say Geek like it's a bad thing???

Not planning on securing the tubs, weight alone will do that, but could use double sided tape if worried.

 

Tubs are strong enough I could stand on them upsidedown, not worried about holding the weight, but if was, could always run a piece of wire or heavy duty fishing line and just have a clip on each side (center of the bottom one), or just below the rim put in 2 eyehooks, with small piece of wood on the outside and line to secure, won't move at all.

So far it appears the plants are liking the tubs, the largest plant is 7" tall and 14" wide (un-topped)

So, a week later, and notice the last pic, is what I think a proper flood of the medium should look like.

My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.

TW, could you PM me a specific parts list, i truly would appreciate it... @tumbleweed

 

bigpapa, other than what I listed, I really don't have one, will  see if I can lookup the tubs, but the drain/fill fittings I just bought from the tubs they have at my local grow shop...

 

I also connect the plug of the pump to a timer and set for 15-30 min a few times a day, adjust as needed for environment.

 

The first time filling, fill from the top to just below the top of the top bucket to be sure it can't spill, the clay pellets will float as filling.

 

peace and be well
