I’m curious if they are better than traditional DWC or Top Feed systems… I wonder how you could also incorporate a reservoir so that these would auto circulate?? What about adding a water chiller such as this???
It does seem incredibly expensive for what it is - 4 black buckets, a couple pumps, and some net pots. I wish I could remember who it was around here who had a combo drip/DWC system and discovered the drip feed was stunting the plant root development because the roots didn’t actually have to grow anywhere to get water. They got a little splash from below like normal DWC and they got some water from the top feed so they didn’t need to move. @pr@Syndrix@HappyHydroGrower was it one of you? I can’t remember to save my life.
Water chillers are absolutely worthwhile for hydroponic setups.
I think HappyHydro can help suggest a more effective setup for less or the same cost.
