    Wasting your money on hygrozyme. It's over priced. There are a dozen other products that are half the price and just as good. Plus aquariums use an enzyme and it's like 5 bucks for a bottle that big

    what is the active ingredient in the "pH down" or "pH up"?
    lemon juice works fine to lower pH..
    when fixing pH do it to the closest 0.01. you will need a pH meter that reads in three decimal places. remember solution that is pH 6.00 is 100 times more acidic than pH 7.00. the pH may effect the plants more or less compared to the recommended pH in soils. .

    Anywhere between 3 weeks to 8 weeks. Remember there is a auto top off installed. Hope this helps.

    how offend do u change the water

  • Jksax914 1 year ago

    @GrassFarm, the roots fill the bottom of the rails about an inch thick. Like a mat. Hope this helps

    Excellent job on the videos. Thanks for putting all of that together in a clear presentation. I may have missed it in the video, but can you tell me how long the root systems are for your pepper plants now that they have a harvest on them? Thanks.

    I've watched most of your videos, you have an extremely nice design with several advanced features incorporated, I wanted to advise that if you added a venturi impeller on the return, or incorporated a waterfall effect you could raise the dissolved oxygen levels.

    Search High Pressure Aeroponics , you'll find forums w/ details on how to get you to the next level, you're definitely ready.

    @xzvc9084 Thank you.The reason I split the res was because the 2 totes can support the water without bracing and the height of the totes. I wanting to keep my rails from being to tall and I didnt want any additional bracing around the totes. Remember the 2 totes are connect by a 1inch tee to the pump so they are kinda like one. I do have mylar and I'm seeing how the reflective does on the board. Maybe I should do one side mylar and one builders board and do a test study. maybe a new video!

    @telometo83 The pump is a quiet one 3000. My next video in this series is on the plumbimg so keep checking back. Thanks for the comment.

    @garygardens Hi Gary. I change my res weekly now that the plants are large. Some are over 3 feet. The top off last change ran 57 Gallons in a week. The temp I've been trying to control with 2 liter bottles froze with water. Works pretty good. At night when the air cools my air pump gets its air from outside to cool the res. Ultimately though I'm working on a DIY Chiller. The reason is my garsge gets very hot in my climate. But thats another video 😉

    @19Photographer76 were all over the place. In the beginning top off was minimal but now that the plants are large some 3ft. top off is quite a bit. Last time I checked my flowmaster between changes top off was 57 gallons for 1 week!! Thats why I monitor ph and ec daily. Luckily my water coming in is not bad on the ph side.
