In this episode we look at one way we can set up a timer for a hydroponic ebb & flow (flood & drain) system. I found with my timer that I’m limited to only 8 on/off times per day so I will be watering for longer periods during the ‘on’ cycle. Find your sunrise and sunset times as well as the “solar noon” for you region using this free online tool http://www.timeanddate.com/ Keep in mind these times will change throughout the year but they will give you a good idea on where to start. MORE STUFF LIKE THIS @ http://www.MIgardener.com How to build the cheapest and easiest setup for aquaponics and hydroponics! If this works, this setup could just be the cheapest aquaponics setup ever. But it ALSO will relook at the way we see aquaponics setups in the future. No longer will you need multiple pumps and reservoirs, but the ENTIRE system is a closed system much like nature is. The entire project cost me only and here is the materials you will need: 14 gallon fish tank (or one like this: http://amzn.to/2bxSCsX)- 1 air stone strip http://amzn.to/2bPsMhN – 1 Air pump http://amzn.to/2bjuDin – 4 goldfish – $ .75 2 (5lb.) bags of river rock http://amzn.to/2bp1eAG- 1 – 1X12X24 foam board http://amzn.to/2bjve3x – 8 – 2 inch net cups http://amzn.to/2bjPk94 – 3 OR 8 – 3 large multiple plant herb container *separated*, OR 8 small plants – MIgardener Store: https://www.facebook.com/MIgardener/app_251458316228 Join the fun on facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/MIgardener +1 me on Google+ @ http://www.google.com/+MIgardener Pin me on Pinterest @ http://www.pinterest.com/MIgardenerYT Follow the fun on twitter @ http://www.twitter.com/MI_Gardener Related PostsHydroponic & Tower Garden TimerSetting Up the HydroFarm EMSYST Emily’s Garden All-in-One Hydroponic SystemPi Wall Vertical Hydroponic Grow System Living WallsHydroponic Gardening – Setting Up, Part 1Hydro City: Setting up your DWC […]
