    Lookn good how many Liter/Hr is that air pump? Have you considered getting the ceramic diffusers? They are a bit pricey, but make tiny bubbles and last years longer. They are easier to clean and have a tendency to clog less. Just some thoughts, as I'm sure you've learned DWC is all about your air system. Good luck, bagseeds really are a waste of time huh? lol it's cool their fun to torture and learn from.

    Yeah I actually got the ceramic stones and the pump is 600gph but I'm getting another pump next week. And yes the bagseed was a terrible mistake hahaha. I've just been giving them bathwater while the pineapple and purp have been getting the nutes in distilled water. I found a 7in1 ph/ec/tds/ppm drop in meter on ebay for $100 i'm getting next week too. Nutrients are another issue I'm thinking about. It will cost me a FORTUNE to put nutes in 300 gallons of water every week. I think I'm gunna ditch the reservoir and just use the 2 bins and have the water pumps circulating the water through them. So when I'm done I'll have 4 bins total with 24 plants 12 veg and 12 bloom. 200 gallons is still alot but I was looking at GH Maxi Series powedered nutes which would be affordable......barely lol

    You won't have to run it full all the time. In fact I've heard the last 4 weeks in dwc your suppose to lower the level to about half on the roots. Encourages oxygen uptake in the upper half of the roots. But yeah, 200gal sounds like a lot of nutes.

    Ok so I decided against the maxi series since it was designed for large scale soil grows and I've been looking into the lucas formula. According to the formula I would only use a SMALL amount of nutes and I would only have to change my reservoir between grows or every 8-12 weeks. Sounds about perfect for what I was looking for!

    Quick update - I moved all the plants under the HPS to start budding again. My plower power didn't stop budding when I switched back to 20/4 light schedule so I decided to just let them all finish since I'm starting my hydro grow soon. I'm ordering a Hanna Gro-chek drop in ph/ec/tds/temp meter on tuesday with some rockwool solution so I can start the new seeds. Here is a pic of the flower power - View attachment 964805
