    I have built something similar and I used autopot piping so it has an in line filter which is easily cleaned. Your other option is to supply your piping from your sump which would have cleaner water so fewer blockages.

    Hello Mr Porta, I noticed that you still have a raft bed in your system. I am designing my first set up and don't think I have room in my greenhouse for both raft AND grow towers. which do you recommend if it is an either/or situation?

    Is that white-fly that I see on the strawberries? How are you controlling them if it is?

    Hi Donald, Why you put holes in one side of the tubes? why you didn't use the other side too? Thanks

    Hey there sir, I'm new to this and am in my "study up" phase before I jump in and start.  I was curious how you add nutrients to the water in such a large setup.  Is all the nutrients taken care from your pond?  Thanks a bunch!

    Hello Donald, thank you for sharing the videos. They are very helpful. I just wanted to know the reason you have stuffed the towers with what appears to be hay/straw. Is it to filter the fish waste solids? Is it necessary even if I am doing hydroponics only without fish involved? I thank you for your time!

    Excellent project; I am tempted to do the same to grow strawberries.  A couple of questions:  Is there another medium in place of straw that would be just as effective.  Also, what nutrients do you use and in what ppm strength, and lastly what PH level is best for strawberries?  Thanks

    So are you saying that the hose (that enters the top of the tower) gets clogged without a "sprinkler head" on it?  You then mounted it exterior so you could monitor it.  This is all with filtering?  I am confused.  How is it getting clogged?

    Did you have any problems with the towers leaking and dripping out?
