    That is a nice setup. I like the fact that your "reservoir" is actually the bucket itself rather than a big tub sitting off to the side with all the piping. This is a very nice setup for those who want to grow indoors or those with limited space, like on a balcony or porch. Thanks for sharing.

    Can someone explain the whole "clone" thing?

    you need air to lift the nute soln', not a pump. Look into dewey mister design. air wont change the temp of solution like a pump will.

    Can you provide details on the sprinkler head? I'm using a lawn & garden head and it doesn't seem to get all my 6 sites wet. To test it, I put a little piece of toilet paper in each net pot. 2 of 6 got soaked, the other 4 were barely moist. Not sure why it's not hitting all 6. Thank you

    do not use a drill in reverse to cut holes..just get a bit with finer teeth. it's cheaper than replacing the drill.

    Does this pump make a noise?
    Do you think this would work with a smaller pump?

    It should be pointed out that pvc plumbing parts ARE perfectly food-safe. It's only during manufacture or incineration of pvc that harmful toxins are released. The finished product is fine for plumbing of drinking water and such in your home. You DO however want to run away from it if it's in a fire, so don't ever try to burn scrap pieces, or even most plastics for that matter anyway.
