Wick system is the simplest method, provide you enough to learn the basics of hydroponics. It is passive circulation of nutrients. It uses wick to deliver the nutrients to the growing media. Only the wick that links between nutrition and growing media. Water and nutrients are going through to the roots of plants by utilizing the principle of capillary through a wick. I use recycled mineral water bottle as main media and growing seed on rockwool Useful tips: Use the air pump to increase the levels of dissolved oxygen in the water. You can add hydroponic nutrients into the water to feed the plant.

    Very good video, thanks very much for doing them.  I've downloaded all 3. Question: I can't find #4 you were going to do about the lighting…. when will you be doing that, I look forward to watching it.

    $1,000 in materials + labor to grow $100 worth of vegetables. Not knocking you. But I've tried soo hard over the years and I end up putting in 10 times more than I enp up getting out. At this point I rather just go to the grocery store.. It is fun to see things grow.. I guess it's more of just a hobby.

    Are your plans linked in one of the videos and I just missed it or do I need to PM you my email address to get a copy of them?  Thanks for sharing the videos of your build , I got some good ideals from your vids for the setup that I want to build this summer.  

    I had to laugh as I watched your series because I started to think, "Man he over engineered this build just like I do…"  I usually find myself over engineering things all the time and making my projects harder and more complicated than they should be; then where I think that I am saving money by using cheap parts and doing it myself, I end up spending way more money than I should have on my projects.  The woes, issues and problems of being a man I guess 🙂    

    Oh, and why didn't you just use the clear silicone on everything?  It would hold the water and barb in and be less permanent than the epoxy; if for some reason you needed to remove one of the barbs.  Did you try silicone on the drip line barbs at all?  if so , how well did it work?  I'm also wondering about the water flow for your system and the amount of pressure the ECO 633 pump produced? I've seen with some systems people have a problem with getting an even water flow throughout their system.  That's where your ball valves would come into play I'd think; limiting the channels closer to the pump and increasing the flow to channels further away from the pump by having them wide open. 

    Also, I am right there along with everyone else…  Where's part 4 of this build?  Was it a successful build?  how much have you grown in the setup since starting it up?  Or, have the project even been put into production since the last vid?   Thanks again.
