I’ve got a 4x8 tent and going with either 4 or 6 buckets.
I’m going to build up a RDWC system.
This will be going into a basement where I have access to a sink/water coming off our well.
Space isn’t really a concern. I’ll use a 4x8 for flowering and 4x4 for veg and 4x4 for drying.
I’m looking at buckets that are either 8 or 13 gallons.
Pros of 13 over 8
More volume for stability
Less volatile temp changes
Fewer water changes
Cons of 13 over 8
Managing more water
I’ve done aquaponics for many years doing flood and drain and constant flood, so I’m cool with measuring ph, ec and managing temps and nutrients.
I really dig automation and use a niwa grow hub and raspi controllers I build.
What is you’alls take on the different sizes for buckets in a RDWC system?
