midnightrun7: Your pump will get too hot and cause premature malfunctions. If you keep the air pump about 15 inches above your air stone you don't have to use check valves because the water will not go back into the pump if it fails. However, better safe than sorry with the one way check valves. I do like the idea that if the top bin happens to leak you won't get a flood. Thanks for sharing!
Budds Smoke: TOMATO'S some real bomb ass tomatos lol
Jon S: Also, this guy makes it much more complicated then it needs to be. Watch some other youtube DWC vids.
Jon S: If you get 2" net pots and use 1.5" rockwool you dont have to bother with the hydroton. I did a experiment with this and found there is no difference in plant size when using 3" net pots with hydroton or 2" net pots with just rockwool. The roots grow down anyway so the size of the net pot can be small. There, I just saved everyone money.
schaefer55555: I'm gonna grow some dank tomato's alright. LOL
Sakke Manninen: Hi. Do you think this works in Finland under, in a very dark fall and winter with a plants lamp and the permanent temperature in the house of 22C degrees ? Great idea
mark richardson: could I plant a seed in the net pots ? if so, what medium should I use ? #confused . otherwise great video very helpful for my own projects!
VanGoghLipstick: LOL. My air pump goes to "12" ;) Thanks for the demo. Very helpful!
CrazyWhiteVanDriver: Use a small compressor and pipe :)
Mary G. Kushner: Thanks for your movie.
I also have some tips to grows up to 10 x the plants, by 50 % time, with much healthier plants, while the "fish" do everything..."

checkyasell: Did I find it help full which way round do I put my totes though way too many totes dude
chochaconquistador: This was honestly a great instructional video, very clear and concise. Thanks.
TheWizardOfDodds: you can solve this problem by cutting holes into the bottom tote just under the lip big enough to take in enough air. then covering the holes in the top of the bottom tote where it touches the top tote. for that you can use maybe duck tape and saran wrap
MrVirtualCoder: Allow the TIRAP TRAPS to.. Secure the TIRAP TRAPS.. TTttttttt
MrVirtualCoder: Insert the TOATT. Use the TOATT. Cut the link between the TOATT and the TOATT.
Kenny Bellew: Cool. Good luck.
Selina Cornell: just ordered all the supplies.... thanks for the list and links.....:) wish me luck
japec systums: why use 2 totes besides that air pump needs to breath in air to pump to the systume
it shouldnt be restrictive i say seperate air pump from systume keep pump outside and just use one tote i no your going to say this keeps it all one unit
vardamin bookite: I like how the system is one unit that I could pick up and move, but my fear is that if it does sit outside in torrential rain, that water will make it's way into the bottom tote and fry the air pump. Those air pumps are not too costly, so I might consider building one of these. Overall I like your ideas and instructions. Thanks!
Kenny Bellew: If your water is properly oxygenated, you can fill it as high as possible, since you don't have to worry about drowning the roots. However, if it's too high, the bubbles cause the water to splash out of the top of the pots. So, experiment with what works with your air pump. The main thing to keep in mind is that you don't have to worry about submersing the roots.
Ariakas7708: lol @ the Spinal Tap reference
Kenny Bellew: No, sorry.
ffokcuf1011: What kind of air pump do you use hom many gph are you pushing?
ipyonoti: would you sell and ship to australia?
Fossil Diver: Spinal Tap reference at 06:36 :)
OverGrowTheUk: Very good mate thanks for sharing :)
MPeasant: this is longgggggg
MPeasant: hey guys i can create this set up for 20 bucks if that
gmecomber: 7:06... do what now? Whew... lol.
Kurosh Kaviani: kenny, how much energy thoes pump consume??? they run 24/7.
Kenny Bellew: I was concerned about that too, but it was never an issue.
Roatan Honduras: Sweet!! I've heard that the totes can bulge due to the water. That's my only concern. I think I will make one with a little heavier tote.
ZennExile: I made a system similar to this using an old Aero garden. The air pump went bad in it but the rest of it was working fine so I gutted it and wired a much more powerful air pump to it (the output power for the aero garden air pump is was way higher than needed for the little pump). I used a triple tote setup with two water chambers, one for mixing nutrients and the other for aerating and root feeding.
You don't need the pot to touch the water. The bubbles from the air stone will splash 2-4in
Dante Galindo: Relax bro
Dante Galindo: Relax dude you stressed out so much I shut the video off could be you mclovin
Kenny Bellew: I'm actually selling the ones you see in this video to make room for something else. I have four of them. My cost to build them was about $40 each. I would sell them for cost and shipping expense, if anyone was interested. Or, if local to Minneapolis, someone could pick them up.
JimmY McLovin: Awhhh i see , Awesome video thanks for the info . Are u selling these buy any chance ?
Kenny Bellew: It would, if I hadn't installed a one-way interface into the tubing. It should keep this from happening.
litakdg: This is an awesome instructional video. Thanks for sharing your idea!
JimmY McLovin: If the power drops out wouldn't the water flow from the top bucket where the roots are down the air line into the bucket on the bottom ?
Brantley Grimball: Not sure if he's trying to make spinal tap reference at 6:37 or not
Enlightened1: What type of nutrients do you use for this type of system? and do you use more than one type of nutrient? Also what would you say a preferred average pH level you want to keep?
Kenny Bellew: Water lever should be touching the bottom of the net pots until there's enough root to dangle into the water. Then, you can reduce it if you like. As long as the water is properly oxygenated, you don't have to worry so much about getting too much water on the plants. Check the water about every other day.
