So I'm maki g the switch to hydroponics system and have some questions that I need some help with. I just finished assembling the current culture UC8XL system. With the system, I also installed a 55 gallon top of resovoir and have a bluelab ppm/temp/oh meter that will be installed also. My question is
1. When filling system for 1st time, am I filling the top of res and letting that fill the epicenter or do I fill the whole system (each bucket) and just use the top of res to...... well top off the system.
2. After system is up and running and I need to add nutes and supplements do I do that at the epicenter or the top off res? I assume everything would be done through the top of res, but how do I know when to add nutes. Let's say I add my bloom nutes to top off res, how do I know when it's time to add bloom nutes again? How do I know the bloom nutes have been used up? With soil there was a water, water feed schedule. But with hydrop, I add nutes to tons of water, it would seem those nutes are never used up? And if I want to add a suppliments of some king like mammoth or golden tree, do I just put that in with the nutes in the top off res and just let everything circulate?
I hope that made sense, not easy to describe but any help is always appreciated!!
