this set up can be as large as 24 sights, my dispensary has started using these for veg and flower, there is a solid stream of under current going thru all of the buckets...... the plants love it and are doing incredible, however, the system can start at 1500.$ so I would challenge anyone to build a DIY ..
this is a revolutionary system.
The Under Current combines the Deep Water Culture technique with Sub-Current Culture method to create a truly unique style of plant cultivation.
This innovative application circulates literally hundreds of gallons of solution per hour beneath plant roots. An inline Danner Mag Drive pump provides peripheral negative pressure by thrusting nutrients back to a return module (Epicenter). From this point the solution is drawn from module to subsequent module, causing a type of perpetual fluid motion. 8 gallon growth modules are interconnected via 2" conduit, allowing nutrients unobstructed passage through the plants root zone.
The Under Current supercharges the solution with dissolved oxygen, creating a hyper aerobic condition ideal for beneficial microorganisms. Constant, 24/7 nutrient circulation ensures that pH and EC are uniform throughout the entire system. Each Under Current includes the powerful D.W.C Aeration Kit.This convenient kit enables growers to use the deep water culture method in conjunction with our patent pending Sub-Current Culture application.
● Hybrid Deep Water Culture /Sub-Current Culture method
● Provides unmatched dissolved oxygen levels
● 8 gallon growth module allows for maximum root development
● Circulates hundreds of gallons of solution per hour, keeping mineral/oxygen ratio consistent throughout system
● Grows huge ”specimen” type hydroponic plants
● Perfect for greenhouse or H.I.D. lighting foot prints
● Super charged oxygen levels ensure that beneficial microbes flourish
The Under Current is the industries first and only pump driven, recirculating, Modular Sub-Current Culture system. Designed specifically to accommodate H.I.D. lighting foot prints, each systems appropriate pairing is as follows... 4 site (600 watt), 4XL (1000watt), 6 site (1000 watt), 6XL (2x600 watt), 8 site (2x 600 watts), 8XL (2x1000 watt), 12 site (3x600 watt or 2x1000 watt) and 12XL (3x1000 watt). The Under Current is easily compatible with any Neptune Series Reverse Osmosis units and/or Aquifer 100 gallon Reservoir System.
