new dwc system
I am just finishing of building my new grow room and want to put in a good 4-6 pot dwc system, if you were setting one up what would you go for and what varient of system. I am looking to grow very large plants rather than a lot of plants.
space isn't an issue.
Awesome. Big reservoir, and make sure you raise the buckets up a bit so you can easily drain them.
I don’t have years of experience, but have only grown in RDWC. Have tried a few different bucket setups, using air stones, drip rings, Venturi pumps etc.
Good set up for me after trying a few:
5 gallon black bucket
8” netpot lid
Drip ring for top drip, with a good sized air pump so you can hear it spitting out the solution. I found that over sizing the holes in the drip ring prevent clogs, but you need a little more psi of air for more flow. Ring is easy to clean at first, but hard to get at later on.
I don’t have a lot of time served doing this yet, but this setup seems about right for me. Solution temps are pretty stable, no air stones buggering up ph or heating up the solution, drip ring aerates the water plenty. Not too heavy to move around, and individual buckets keep some problems to single plant only. I put covers over the net pot until her leaves shade, prevent the algae’s.
No idea how experienced you are, so please take this as my humbled opinion. I like to keep it as simple as possible, and this setup is that. Lots of different setups of course and all can do well in the right hands. Good luck with your venture, and would be more than happy to discuss anything further. Stay safe!
60% of the time, it works every time.

@giddyupgus hey I always have a bubbler going! This is a MAC 1 clone in DWC. Forecast to finish on June 1.
@giddyupgus I have air pumps and stones. I have one air pump that is huge it’s good for 4 buckets, but loud. I use a couple small ones in each single bucket since I only do one at a time. I may do more DWC’s going forward. I have the stuff on hand. I’ll definitely fire up a Jack Herer in one.
