Ideal sprayer position for areoponics in a bucket?


New Member
The new system I'm building for the bloom room is based on black 5 gal buckets with lids that have 6" net pots built in. The net pots bottoms extend about 4 3/4" from the top (into the bucket).
These buckets will all drain to a central res and be pumped/manifold/sprayed from the same res.
My stupid question o' the day....
How high in relation to the net pots bottom should the "inside of the bucket" spray heads be installed? I seem to remember reading about an inch above the bottom of the net pot but I've read a lot of bullsh*t too. :laugh:

Any tips?

Escott what kind of pump you are using? You should be able to get away with it anywhere from 1 to 4 inches. I'll try to put a example of a sprayer spraying water by sunday. I'll measure my sprayers from the bottom of the net pots to get a exact meausurement. I'm not home at the moment.

I imagine that I should clarify that these sprayers will be to the side of the netpot, not underneath. So when spraying from the side, where should you aim the bulk of the flow.
BIG pumpage, pressure is no problemo.
