Dwc is an amazing experience. I've used the method exclusively. The main part is great water [emoji97] quality. I use reverse osmosis with a really low ppm @4. For my nutrients I'm currently using general hydroponic master kit. With micro. grow. Bloom. Rapid rooter. Flourish plus. Calmag. And a few others that came with the kit. Now my kit of choice would b advanced nutrients ph perfect. Only reason is you don't have to ph it will stay at 5.8 for a week so that helps out a lot Then you will need a big air pump and stones more oxygen = bigger plants [emoji271]

I'd say minimum is 300 gph for me but over time the pump looses its power that's y I went so big

You definitely need help..... Seems to me you're you're throwing a temper tantrum because no one responded.. Define your needs, be more specific.. There are people here who will try to address your need for help.. They will downright spoon feed you. Although, you could probably do a better job of that yourself... Your doing alright so far..

My pump is pretty loud but I have no issue with that. Because I have a 200 gall fish tank in the main room of my house and people think the sound is from there but the sound comes from vibrations of the pump try to hang the pump on a bungie strap
