looks good man.
Well first off i just moved to Colorado from St Louis i have done a few grows and all were successful using an AeroFlo 2 that i bought from the local Hydro Store there (In St Louis).The system seemed to work great along with Ionic neuts it was almost Idiot proof lol.So i take a break from growing for a few years and me and the family move to good ole Colorado.Well i sold all of my stuff that i had for the set up so instead of spending 400 on a new one i went to home depot and built my own.
1. 8 ft 5x5 white Vynle fence post. $24.00
4. 3/4 rubber grommets. $1.00 a piece
4. end caps for the fence post. $2.50 a piece
1. 550 g/p/h pump off of ebay. $40.00
1. 10ft 1/2 inch pvc pipe. $3.50
2 3ft scrap pieces of 1/2 in pvc pipe .99 cents a piece
2 1/2 inch elbow connectors.50 cents
1 1/2 inch t connector.50 cents
1 1/2 inch male screw in connector (for intake from pump) .50 cents
and used a tote that we had around the house.
This is what i came up with and it runs like a top
i have a question. it seems with such a small area for the roots to grow how big will the plants get, also seems like the spacing from net pot to net pot is pretty close together, they dont crowd?
Spacing may be an issue but I really think you might want to upsize the drain or rethink the drain design. I've had a few experiences with building rails so if you need help let me know.
Thanks guys i made this off the Aeroflo 2 system i had awhile back.The drain will prob be a problem with roots growing in to res. It did on the Aeroflo i had and i am always open to help lol im pretty sure this will work but if i can make it better without the hassel im open lol........ This is my grow with the aeroflo it was Sensi Star and Generals Daughter
The system looks good either way. After you build something and run it you always figure out better ways for the next time its inevitable. lol. Those plants and buds from your last harvest look great either way as well. Looks like some killer smoke.
follow SS's thread here.
my 3 stages of flower
He has really upgraded this system.
and also has a cloner system, and a vegger system.
he also has his nute recipe for this system in his thread.

Looks like some killer smoke. MMmmmm I'm hungry just looking at it.
Still waiting on plants to get big enough to clone and then she will be up and running
