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.

 

thanks all.

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!

Mix your solution for 600 ppm and lots of air! I actually don’t use the drip rings anymore, just pump lots of air into the solution. 

psyched to see you get this going!

Those looking pretty nice Ned. How do you aerate the solution?

@macky

Will do Macky, I have a little purple punch auto going in my black bucket setup. Could use some guidance from the fine folks at Percys!

@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.

@ned

Right on, always curious what others are using. I couldn’t keep Rez temps down using stones, was constantly adding frozen water bottles lol. That’s one of the reasons I love growing, so many different ways and things to learn. Do you run a chiller or anything?
