I keep on redesigning and trying to get a better system.
Look at the drawing, Give me ideas, Make it better.
My idea is to create a cheap an reliable system. Always a problem and a way to solve them. At the end I will design at my best, a system useful for all o you. Is a fact that is no cheap way to do this. Pumps,tubes,growing media, diffusers, hose and fittings, a reserve,and so on. i will try to get into the $150 DOLLARS AT MOST. I already spent $59 on a Submersible Water Pump. I recycled the air hose and fittings from and air mattress, as well as the pump.Bought a double exit air pump (local aquarium), and had a 35 gals reserve full of my magazines(Hot VW's and Vw Trenz from the early to date years). Got some PVC tubes (6 inches) from a local hardware store, elbows, fittings, glue, sealant, some valves and 1/2" pvc for sprayers . It will go over $175 for sure.
I'm in my retirement(sick) and have time to just make my live easier working on the system.Light has to be avoid as possible. Algae will grow. Some algae cleaner from the pet shop an done.Or rent the water reservoir filter to a pair of COI fish or common goldfish. They like algae and add CO2 to the water.So we have a system with air in reserve which can sustain life fish and organic matter in the water. Food for the plants as well.Less nutrients and soon the system will be aqua-ponic. Will grow plants and grow fish! This is the what started all some years ago! Is my brainstorming. And all will be here. Every drawing, every change and every failure will be here.
This is my grow journal and Project Library as well.
