So I am jumping into Aeroponics I plan to do 6 sites. I have experience with DWC however this will be my First Aeroponics attempt. So this is what I have done so far. For reference i am using this guide and modifying a few things.
DIY Aeroponics - New High Pressure Aeroponics DIY Plans - How To Grow Weed Indoors

First I purchased a 3x3 Gorrila tent.

What a pain putting this up by myself!

Then the pump i went with with 8852 version it has slightly higher psi.

I bought a 1/4 MDF board to mount the pump and electrical to. I choose the MDF because it was lighter. Here are a few pics:

Now i had to figure out how to attach the transformer it had no screw holes. I ended up using a couple of l brackets and velcro:

Works like a charm!
next i decided to build a stand out of pvc:

All i am waiting on is for the sprayers filters and drain to arrive. Until then this is what is will look like:

A couple seedlings i will place in there next week once the sprayers arrive.

Here is an image of my light it is a 1200W COb LED made by Bestva Bright as hell i still see purple tones thru my led glasses!

I will post more on Tuesday the rest of the parts i need will be here Monday however, work so yea..... lol

So when I ordered that pump I bought it thru the Sear's Marketplace to use my sears card. When it arrived at my house the receipt from the marketplace in the box showed a much lower price than what I paid thru the Sears site. With shipping i paid 120+20.00 shipping: I know it was more than i could find online however I wanted it on my sears card. When it arrived at my door the receipt said it should have been $99 with free shipping.

So I sent Sears an email asking why the price difference and to request to have the difference refunded to my sears card. When i checked my e-mail this morning I received this:

Thank you for your order with sears.com!

So pretty much they just gave me the pump for free because there was such a mistake made in the billing!!!!

Well i did some work today i have the misters ready to roll i just need to run up and grab a bit to drill my drain hole. I also added a 30 micron filer in the incoming side of the pump and a pressure gauge in the outputting. I also assembled the carbon filter.
