Each day we do a light clean of the grow tents but after harvest, we do a deep clean to make sure we aren’t running into any major contamination problems. It’s not glamorous but it needs to be done.

    I wonder if it would be more time efficient to use an electrostatic sprayer with a mild hypochlorous acid solution? The wrap-around effect on your metal shelving should disinfect a lot better than that simple pressure sprayer and HOCl has more bacterial/fungal/viral killing power than bleach (it basically is just bleach, just pH shifted lower, and the same chemical defense your body's white blood cells use to fight off infection). Also, there are much less noxious fumes from HOCl compared to hypochlorite. Just let the droplets sit on the surfaces for about 10 minutes and then wipe down with the microfiber. You'd have to remove all your grows first to avoid hitting them accidentally with what is essentially chlorine.

    Maybe you could also think about simply fogging HOCl directly into the grow tent through your existing fog ports to completely saturate the inside airspace. You'd just have to temporarily change the feed lines to your fogger from water to HOCl. That might be done automatically with an on-premises electrolyzer and some electronic valves, if you so choose.

    What brand of tend are you using? Really love the idea of using those instead of building your own. Thanks for sharing so much or your knowledge! Super inspiring 🙂

    Would a slanted floor help? I am thinking sand with plywood on the top and then put a drain out the corner. Powerwash then run the disinfectant… Tell me if this is a bad idea.
