12v solar powered hydroponics & greenhouse that I built over 3 days. It was meant to be cheap and inexpensive but the costs started to add up. Learn how to make your own just like this one. Please comment, this is my first attempt and I’d like to hear any suggestions you have for this.

    so no concern of the chemicals leaching from the PVC? I know one is to avoid farm fish because of all the PVC.. I would assume the vegetables would absorb the toxins as well

    You don't need the thermostat for the fan. Just hook the panel directly to a 12 volt fan. When the sun comes out, the fan starts up by itself. Ideally have the fan near the top of your greenhouse facing a light weight baffle that will open when the fan is on and close (with its own weight) when fan shuts off.

    Hydroponics is a great system but it also have some drawback, you have to buy some "plant food", nutrition and supplements that can be high-priced. Before building any hydroponics system, it is best to look at the benefit from aquaponics system, which could automate 95% of work.

    Don't worry about the costs cause the saving in the end will be well worth it.

    I have just made my very own aquaponics system. It was actually simple and easy and it appears and operates just as the ones that charge thousands more, by using this guide

    This will make plants frigid, they will still sense the temp change and go into winter mode. It should be a constant summer underground water temp like around 68 degrees. Also note that this is another down side of using tubes, they spread your water density out and transfer outside temps to the water more easily. Again creates drama in water temp causing plants to change to winter mode.

    4. I like the idea of burying your sump, but you should know that you need to get the tank 2 feet into the ground to get below frost zone. As long as the water is constantly moving, you should be ok, but it could freeze and kill your system at current depth. Also, at this depth, it could cause a dramatic temp change in your water.

    3. Because you are using tubes and you iced a hole saw, your openings are reducing the amount of water you can allow into your system to your plants. A flat opening will allow you to raise your water level closer to your plants roots for initial starts.
