Smaller Water Treatment, For the smaller grow 😉

Good morning everyone,
So I have been working on a new water system that implemented both Vortex & air Stones…
I didn’t have a 55 gallon spot, But I’m kinda crafty ( like most smokers are ) .
ALL RAINWATER!! FOR THIS.

  1. 5 gallon buckets
    Hot glue gun or silicone will work, but you maybe waiting a day to use with the silicone.
    2.5 pvc
    Air pump w/ 2 air stones
    Water pump
    1/2 water line (pvc)

Not only do you get the benefit for all the oxygen, the water stays about 76 to 78 at all times. Ph 6.2 . I have a hose coming today so I can’t wait!! Like a little kid lmao…I love growing… just in general…
and the novice builder can do this under 30 bucks.

Just in case anyone else is DDing water lol…

Happy Growing!!

Your the man old guy. Always building something. You already saw mine so won’t post it again but great job it’s fun making things. I’d like to do even more but have so many things going on in life but designing my own scrubber with uv-c dual duct light… I’ll get it at some point, getting older lots to do in both my homes etc. to old for what I’ve been doing :v:t2: (Tired )… great job my friend!

I also think adding extra air to your water helps. This is for our teas.



This was the setup this past year. Kinda just have to work with what you have.

Alright #2 on the water system . Maybe 3 . But who’s counting!! . This actually saved me space & holds 4 more gallons …
I’m happy now, hose hook up is nice . An it’s nice and slow . It doesn’t drown the plants soon as you pull the trigger…

I kinda like the organic way of doing things, fill up filtered water, I add bat guano, worm castings,liquid kelp,sometimes a tad of Epsom salts,molasses brew for 24 hrs make sure ph is cool dump on plants lol Oh also use seabird guano depending if I’m water for veg or flower. Always use bat guano and seabird guano but adjust how much per what room I’m watering. Nitrogen more in veg but still nitrogen in flower but minimal amounts… I do use ph up/down and cal mag but probably not as much as others use in here… That’s it… Partner sneaks in this terpintaor in on me sometimes though :muscle:t2: That’s it from start to finish but I have considered that ff trio just to test it out but what’s not broken why fix it…

Back in the early 80s I grew in my garden all I used was miracle grow 20-20-20 lol had awesome luck actually. Only a few places u could buy seeds in the old days (Holland) and your chances of receiving them for me anyway was like 30% you got them and 70% you didn’t… (Neville) seed bank and someplace else can’t recall but was only the two I knew of then…Times change some for the good and some not. In 70s and 80s “what’s a cell phone”? Funny!
