Quick rundown on my indoor hydroponic RDWC system. I learned how to make this from medgrower1 here on youtube. 32 gallon water reservoir with Milwaukee Instruments pH reader/doser. 20 gallon control bucket with ink bird water temp thermometer/controller that maintains my 1/4 horse power water chiller and 150watt heating rod to maintain water temps. Control bucket feeds into 6 buckets that live in my 5x5x6 foot Apollo grow tent. 600watt hood cooled light with 6inch exhaust fan and fan speed controller. Humidity controller that runs my simple vicks humidifier and mini de-humidifier. One ink bird air temperature thermometer/controller that runs my AC and Mini heater. ::Water Pumps:: An Eco633 GPH Water pump was not big enough for a 5 gallon / 6 bucket setup just like the one above. I went back to the store and got a Eco1500-1600 GPH water pump. The Eco1500-1600 GPH however was way too much for a 6 bucket config and my control bucket would get too low very fast.. I fixed this however by adding a 1 inch stop valve between my control bucket and the pump. I found that the addition of a stop valve gives you finer control of not only pump power, but also water levels during rapid roots growth. So I’d say for a 4 bucket setup like above Eco633 might sound perfect, but you really should go a tad bit higher like around 800 GPH in the video. Lesson is that you want to go a tad over on pump power and add a stop valve so you can have fine control of the water levels at all stages of the plants life cycle (IMO).
