      Hey! Big fan of your exotic genetix grow log with that aero system.
      Definitely the most productive 4x8 aero I've seen so far.

      I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind sparing your time.

      What perks do you see with having your 1/4" supply pvc run outside of the main 4" posts?
      For simplicity, do you think that is easier than the typical stinkbud style of running them inside?

        Check their thread post history.
        "Exotic Genetix, Future, Chocolate Orange, Big Smooth" something like that.
        I'm definitely interested in a COB build like that but can't shell out the $ yet. Still probably over $1/watt I'd guess.

        My next plan is to build a similar setup with a larger res underneath it.
        Wondering what kind of plugs you used to connect your thin poly tubes from the 1/4" pvc to the 4" sprayers?

        Also wondering if it would be beneficial to have a small pump running constant. 1/4" poly tubing at the end of the row so there's always water flowing, aside from the sprayers. NFT/Aero hybrid.

        The 1/4 tubing connected to 3/16 tees that thread into the pvc supply lines. I drilled and tapped the holes for the tee's, they can be bought from amazon. I eventually ran the pumps 27/7. As for the cob cost, it cost me about 500 for each 4x4 fixture. Now I buy chinese pcb boards from alibaba with samsung lm561c diodes aka quantum boards.

      Hey there. I saw in one of your past posts that you had a number of nozzles and misters you would be willing to sell? I was also wondering if you had any updates on the number of solenoids you're using and would recommend to someone building a new system. Cheers!

        What I did was hook up just one mister/nozzle to a pump and let it spray and try to figure out how wide the pattern was of the spray and then give myself a little overlap. So If I was spraying a 12" circle I'd place them at 10" apart for example.

        Oh yeah, I was hoping for nozzles and a pump haha. No worries, thank you!

        I had a question about your setup. Did you use an arduino? Or how did you set up timers to work for the pump & solenoid? Besides the hardware, I'm trying to figure out the electronics. From what I would imagine, the pump would be on until pressure accumulates, and then the solenoid allows for a brief period of misting?

      I saw in a thread that you have a similar set up that I am currently building (1000w on a 4x4 space)
      I was hoping you could tell me what ventilation setup you have and how many plants you flower in that space.. thanks!
