After lessons learned last year on the 110mm PVC Hydroponic Towers, I have made a few adjustments to the system. Less plants per tower to avoid the roots clogging up the system and disrupting water flow again, Individual feed lines to solve pressure issues and extra connector pipes to increase circulation and stop the pump from sucking air. This year we are going for a record tomato and cucumber harvest from these towers. The 110mm PVC pipe Hydroponic Towers gave us a very good harvest last year, but I believe that we can really kill it this year. Hydroponics towers rules! Video Rating: / 5 How to make or, how I made a vertical tower for aeroponics, hydroponics, with PVC pipe. After I made this I decided to make it out of vinal fence post. Having a square service was a lot easier to work with and the PVC is thinner and easier to heat up and get soft. However the tower has been working great. I have it set so it rotates for about 1-2 minutes, then stops for 5. The mirror ball motor kind of chooses which way to spin at random, so it randomizes where the tower will stop. The plants have been doing great. Making one now that is 6 feet tall with 35 plants.

    I fear your tomato plant will still clog up the pipe at the crown. Have you looked into plants with smaller root balls?

    Nice tower and I really like the music in the video. Are you gluing the PVC net cups to the tower? If not glued, are you experiencing any water leaks? I have a similar tower in my channel. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
