    @7:30 Great tip on the longer reach. Always tempted to 3D print these puppies but your method is cheap and also yield more exposure to the solution.?

    Whats your thought on using a solar pond pump like this? WIth the tubing attached to where the pond fountain attachment would be? Electrical supply is an issue for me, as the only outlet is in a very shaded spot. I live in Hawaii so sunlight isn't an issue here!

    Mike, really appreciate your vidoes. Watched most of them several times!! Few questions. Why is it that most pictures I see of these towers are just lettuce or strawberries? Any guidance on what to plant and what not to? Maybe a top ten successful crops for this method? Planning on building one of these soon! Thanks!!?

    So cool! I want to build this for my classroom since we cover plants:) Last year I made a green house but have always wanted to tackle some sort of hydroponics system. Thanks for sharing!?

    Great rework you did of the rain tower. I will be building my first one this weekend and will be using your ideas! They are totally awesome!?

    I'm making one of these, or something like it, right now. Is the PVC vinyl cement food safe? I bought some Loctite plastic bonder. It says not for prolonged immersion in water and not for use in potable water systems. I've been searching for a food-safe epoxy or plastic cement. So far no luck. Your thoughts??
