footstomper1: the air stone will bring up the Ph in the water
Moonfruit: Superb tutorial
Zenn Exile: 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
Brantley Grimball: Not sure if he's trying to make spinal tap reference at 6:37 or not
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.
Kenny Bellew: The roots are under water. No, you could not throw it in the lake. You need
to oxygenate the water around the roots. That's what the air pump is for.
Budds Smoke: TOMATO'S some real bomb ass tomatos lol
ladymiss4711: Wow impressive big bro. Great job :)!!!!!
MPeasant: hey guys i can create this set up for 20 bucks if that
ffokcuf1011: What kind of air pump do you use hom many gph are you pushing?
Kenny Bellew: I was concerned about that too, but it was never an issue.
checkyasell: Did I find it help full which way round do I put my totes though way too
many totes dude
JimmY McLovin: Awhhh i see , Awesome video thanks for the info . Are u selling these buy
any chance ?
David Saint: Best comment ever
madjimms: fruits & vegetables my ass..
MGBane: I wish my air pump went to 11... :(
joshua hendrycks: thats great im building one this week
Fossil Diver: Spinal Tap reference at 06:36 :)
Ovidio R: excellent tutorial, thank you!
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
Kenny Bellew: Cool. Good luck.
Kenny Bellew: No, sorry.
Bruce Banner: check out: cannabis-seed.us
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.
OverGrowTheUk: Very good mate thanks for sharing :)
CrazyWhiteVanDriver: Use a small compressor and pipe :)
imchillyb: That's awesome Kenny! You've got a great radio voice man.
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
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
VanGoghLipstick: LOL. My air pump goes to "12" ;) Thanks for the demo. Very helpful!

Kurosh Kaviani: kenny, how much energy thoes pump consume??? they run 24/7.
moppa king: totes growing weed ay bro??
Jon S: Also, this guy makes it much more complicated then it needs to be. Watch
some other youtube DWC vids.
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?
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.
exphysman: would you sell and ship to australia?
chochaconquistador: This was honestly a great instructional video, very clear and concise.
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!
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!
heyakoni: Great job on the portables. One question..with the air pump resting at the
base,is there still an electric plug in cord attached or is there an inside
power source to operate the air pump..?
Dan Caine: wait do you grow them underwater... like could i take that and throw it in
gmecomber: 7:06... do what now? Whew... lol.
Default Name: Insert the TOATT. Use the TOATT. Cut the link between the TOATT and the
Dante Galindo: Relax dude you stressed out so much I shut the video off could be you
MPeasant: this is longgggggg
tasuki: Should the water level be at the net pots or slightly below? How often do
you find yourself topping the water level in a period of a month? I am
about to get my DWC system started to grow some organic chinese kale.
Appreciate any advice.
