Re: Under Current system- Current culture h20

I am in the process of getting the parts to build a 4 site 8 gallon per site diy uc system. So far linpac's only selling the hinged bucket pails by the pallet and then I'd have to wait to piggy back on someone else to also order 81 buckets. Any links or suggestions to a place I could buy 5 would be great.
Thanks

I went ahead and built my RDWC out of 18 gallon plastic totes. 4 grow sites and one epicenter. 950 GPH danger MagDrive Pump so I can also run the system thru a 1/4 HP chiller.

Re: Under Current system- Current culture h20

I will be running my homemade rdwc under current style system here as soon as I can get some clones. What I was hoping to be mother plants are stalled out do to me. Still learning thats for sure. If it werent for all the dispensary clones I've tried end up having PM I'd go get some but this time I am starting from seed and cloning myself. ASAP, hopefully sooner than later

I might end up using smaller bucket pails instead of the super huge 18 gallon totes, smaller sites='s less trips to the water machine

Those 18g totes will do awesome. I would however thing seriously about 6-8" net pots. The stability is needed as these girls get near 3ft tall and wide n heavy. With the smaller netpots, my experience has been waking up in the morning to fallen over plants, tying main stalks really hard in multiple angles to prevent falling over, etc etc. Less so with large netpots.

But the 18g tote will be awesome for a massive root zone. Looks sharp!

**Lowes and Home Despot have some sort of "y" inline filters too. I havent used them yet (they are pvc), but I've seen others use them just after the return spigot, before the hose to pump. Will help prevent too much shit getting in the pump and making it fail prematurely. I also, always have at least one working backup pump and fittings. Just a fyi.

thanks bass, should be able to take cuttings soon, there finally starting to put on some growth, still not sure if I will use the big totes or the bucket pails like DK did. I have both. I do need to get a stand by pump in case. I will make sure to message you a link once my journal is up and running.

Re: Under Current system- Current culture h20

so the cuttings were taken 4 days ago, hope they will start getting some roots here within a week or so? I keep having to add a few drops of PH down or it gets above 7.4? The water is staying warm enough from the heat of the sub. pump. Fingers crossed, if this fails then I will take more and put em in the rw cubes and do it the way I know how

Re: Under Current system- Current culture h20

really bass, if u saw me with a drill. im just clumsy with that stuff and have no patients. undercurrent systems are great. cant really buy them in uk and dont like the idea of shipping from states. so i will have to diy if thats what i decide on but not looking forward to 200litres water pissing through the ceiling haha.

Re: Under Current system- Current culture h20

I took new cuts almost 48 hours ago, im hoping this time they will be spot on. Time will tell. this time Im not fixing whats not broke. I would really like to be able to get my 1st journal up and running that and some plants into flower, 6 months since and thats way to long for me. When I dont have plants budding then Im forced to take prozac, not joking either.
