This system is very poorly made. It barely works. I chopped it up and created my own system with pvc pipe and plumbing grommets. I recommend you do not buy this

How does airpump pump the water?

Asked by Six June 13, 2018
1
Answer

The air pumps are just aerators for each bucket. The air pumps create movement in the individual bucket so the water doesn’t get stagnant. They don’t pump water from bucket to bucket.

Is this a continuous flowing system, if so does it require a pump?

Asked by VR May 8, 2018
1
Answer

This system has a passive flow. Fill the main reservoirs and it propagates to the other 8. It comes with an air pump to keep the water/nutrients oxygenated.

When topping off Water, can you just add water to the reservoir? Also is there a level indicator per bucket?

Asked by VR May 8, 2018

Can this be used to start seeds in or only for rooted plants?

Asked by Bill April 17, 2018
1
Answer

Theoretically yes, you can. But, I wld recommend using it for a plant that is already rooting.

Can you use only some of the buckets and then add the rest later? can you disconnect a bucket to move it?

Asked by Bama18 January 23, 2018

Answer

Yes, u dnt have to use all buckets at once. U can expand and take away to customize your set up.

Product is working great. The hoses came pre assembled. This might be good for some folks but it was not how I wanted to go se them. So off the the hardware store for irrigation parts to plumb it like I wanted. The parts in the description on the web page did not match what was shipped, so I had to contact customer service to get a replacement.

This is a very cool product but there were parts missing. Specifically, the tubing for the air pumps, a barbed "L" and about a foot and a half of blue tubing. It's a few bucks out of pocket so I will just pick up what need.

I had no trouble with assembly, plant growth was amazing. Ease of use was excellent. The only problem I had was one of the air pump that were included did not work but I was sent a free replacement in a few days and everything worked out great. Deep water culture is an amazingly fast and efficient way to grow!

The best deal by far. If your looking to get the most bang for your buck this is an excellent option! Not only did my package come with all that was described but there was also a pack of rapid rooter plugs and TWO BAGS OF GROWING MEDIA in there as well!!! While it comes with no assembly instructions whatsoever, it dosen't exactly require a genuis to put together. I'd HIGHLY recommend looking into this, especially if you've been trying to find a recurculating deep water culture system whithout getting charged an arm and a leg.

Awesome for the price! Works Great, Easy Setup!

I was pleased to see that they included the media, 10 starter plugs, pH kit, 2 large pumps, air tubing, air stones, everything you need to get started except nutrients and overhead lighting. Ordering online was easy and was shipped to my door within 4 business days, much quicker than estimated arrival. But, was especially pleased that even though instructions show I must assemble and install grommets and tubing for each bucket, this was already pre-done for me, making setup a breeze! Great kit for the price! I'm not sure what other people were not happy with. I couldn't be more pleased. A custom system to duplicate this would cost at least 50% more to piece out.

The product is available online only which is not good . But with a little time it is a better deal than any other store. The product is the cheapest on the market. Overall it is unbeatable for all the equipment n the easy to use setup. Order yours ahead of time cause there will be a shortage as soon as people start to find out. None of the competitors have what homedepot has to offer and for the dollar bang you will not receive a bigger deal.

Save your money for a high quality aeroponic system, a custom aeroponics system will perform better and you won't end up with dead nasty plants.
