BigCraig431: Question of curiosity? What part does the Air Pump and Stone play in the
development of the plants?
Why is it necessary?
Kimdau Kieun: The drawback to hydroponics is that you need to shop for "plant food" or
nutrients and supplements that can be more costly.
nolu4: this pomp must working 24h / day ?
Lam Him: The downside of hydroponics is you will need to buy "plant food" or
nutrients and supplements that can be high-priced.
Mick Mack: Thanks. Very good tutorial.
Darrell Roze: I don't know if this is important or not, but kitchen/bath caulking often
has mould/mildewcide. I would probably use caulking that did not contain
that for anything under the water/nutrient solution if I was growing food.
mj peter: Excellent vid! Thanks : )
eric lluwderic: holesaw set bro, like 10-15 bucks at harbor freight.
AMVgrow Indoor Grower: nice Vid... ever thought of making it bigger??? i mean, it works the way it
is... but isnt bigger better??? like more crop in the end and stuff
click411: I got a elemental O2 pump and it says Wattage 41W Voltage 120V I want
to know isn't that a lot of power to run continuously. And anybody know the
money per month that translates to
Bill Payne: I use an air stone for ever 3 gal water
Fabio Passos: Thank you so much, great vid! Finally saw material good enough to make want
to really give the hydroponic system a go! Well done!
Marcos Mendoza: Where can I put it? Outside?
Major Greenz: thanks for the great ideas very well done video
The Dude's Clues: Why waste an extra tote just for the air pump? Just set the air pump next
to the rest. It takes up a whopping 5 inches of space.
Major Greenz: need a access port to check ph levels and add things to the water with out
moving a plant
Oscar Mayer: them totes get a little heavy when they are full of water. its nice that he
hid the pump underneath the plants. it saves an a$$ load of space. But not
too many people are going to be picking up a 25 gallon tote full of water.
Brevan Zimmer: spinach sure...
korzer .: Mine go's to twelve....
footstomper1: the air stone will bring up the Ph in the water
Rick Sanders: excellent and VERY-WELL DONE SIR!!- .Going to follow this demo. and make
one from scratch..thank you so much for the excellent
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
michelle Williams: Wow impressive big bro. Great job :)!!!!!
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 - Allotment Gardening: Very good mate thanks for sharing :)
CrazyWhiteVanDriver: Use a small compressor and pipe :)
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!
