In this video I go over how I set up my recirculating DWC (RDWC) hydroponics setup. Make sure to watch through the end because I go through a few changes along the way.

    That`s a nice setup for a closet!…My tip for you would be thinking about going for Uniseals for the connections between the pots/buckets, not Bulkheads.
    Uniseals are much better, they really keep it tight so no leakage, besides they are very much cheaper than Bulkheads and last your life out.
    Bulkheads are really made for smooth surfaces, not rounded, so if used it should at least be square pots…but Uniseals work 100% no matter what kind of pots you got.
    (And good going changing those tiny pex tubes for a 1" solution…1" is really minimum for such a setup because you can expect explosive growth and massive roots…those roots can easily clog those tiny tubes and all the water end up on your floor)

    It’s a good setup, making it watertight a hassle. I’ve seen a coloured resin type glue for joining the pvc pipes. I think you may have applied that, but once it’s done will be well worth the effort. It’s a cool hobby. I like your attention to automating the whole system, taking time at the beginning.
