    I run the rubbermaid 14 gallon totes. they work great. I put 6 gallons in it and it gives 1-2 inches of airspace, between pots and water. 4 plants.

    Hey Frosty, Is that 14 gallon you use the shorter, wider ones or is it just a bigger version of the bp tank?

    Rubbermaid 14 gallon tub is 24 Lx16 Hx12 H inches. How does that compare to a SH tub?

    We're looking into the disappearing forum link

    Hope you guys like the logo switch; somehow we ended up with all chiefs and no one chiefen

    If anyone has a higher resolution version of the graphic, I'll update the smiley to make it a little more crisp. Looks ok, I must prefer perfect when it can be had

    Have a great green day my friends

    What are the physical dimensions of the Stealth Hydro Deep Water Culture 6-planter kit?
    Length: 20.5 inches
    Width: 14.125 inches
    Height: 12.5 inches


    They look pretty comparible. 14 gallon is 3 1/2" longer, 2" wider and about the same height. The longer part lets you spread thing out more, it's roughly the same height and that can be important for grow room up top and that's really good. Bigger res also is more ph stable. It's just that it takes more water and nutes for res changes. Only goes to show you that anything works and usually works well.

    Here's a better resolution BH Logo, just 420mag blocks it.

    I can prevent the logo from watermarking if I do the upload but I can't strip it off once it's on there.

    I'm looking for smaller and more crisp

    Not a huge issue, just continuous improvement

Looks like it is gonna be REV OSM and DIST from now on and the water will be changed religiously on Saturday morns. THX The totes are now refilled back to within 1 1/2 inches of the baskets. Man that was a close call as surely they would have simply stressed to death.
    We're glad to have been some help.
    Let us know if you got root rot!

    Clarify: Along with the 14 gallon rubbermaid tub, I use 4x4 inch square pots. There are four in the tub. The pots are about 5 inches deep, and with 6 gallons of water there is about an inch of air space. I setup another tub with 3 inch round pots and there is at least three inches of air space with 6 gallons, 7 puts it around 1.5 inches give or take. So I am using bigger and smaller pots then the stock SH ones.
