Hello my fellow grow mates and hillbilly architects. I need some of your expertise with my own rig set up as a first time grower (auto) who’s now just waiting on the seeds to show from ILGM. Unfortunately, I don’t have the ability of some of these growers with their BA setups and hidden rooms seen above. Rather, I just need something simple and easy to take take down if necessary(if possible). Below is the equipment to be hooked up. Gonna be doing a master bathroom grow. There’s no outlets in the bathroom, so I have to run an extension cord from my room to the bathroom. This is a super small space that I’m trying to fit the grow tent in and basically my toilet will not be poopable while the tent is up. (Biggest downside)
My thoughts: use a 3.5x3.5 board and anchor it to the wall. The toilet sits 2-3in above the tub. Eight ft ceiling. Everything is going to sit anchored 3-4 in above the tub lip somehow, but will have to be anchored against the wall and above the toilet for clearance. I just don’t know how I will safely and securely lock the back of the board to the wall to brace it yet because of the wall tiling and toilet positioning.
Ive already got a bunch of extra light hooks that hold 150 lbs each so I figured I could use those as the anchor ropes from the board to the hooks in the studs.
What do you guys think? Any better ideas? Tips and tricks? I know the bathroom can be a wet place so I do want to take safety into mind as well. Any advice on setup/discreetness/ safety is much appreciated. I’m not handy in this way lol.
Yeah @BetrayedSoul it’s my master bath. Having already put money in the tent, and not knowing much about hydro I’d really like to stick with original plan. Though hopes and dreams of big yields with hydro really does sound amazing. I feel I’d have the most controllable environment in the tent and ventilator setup as a first time grower.
Personally I think it would be less work to remove commode an cap. Two bolts an one water line to remove. An set up the grow tent. Use bathroom exhaust vent to hook exhaust fan out of tent. Just another option to look at good luck with your new venture.
@kellydans@Davyg Gotcha it’s a good idea. Sorry but I didn’t post enough pictures showing the sink to the right of the toilet. Not enough room for the 3x3 tent where the toilet is. I have figured it out though. I’ve got to do a little remodeling but it’ll work for sure. Pictures to come in a week or less ETA
