    Opinions on this system ? Thinking bout it

    I agree with THG for the most part... circulating water between the tanks makes daily management a LOT. easier...... However yo have every connection that has a risk.... 400 GPH is not a huge high pressure pump so that is not a big concern....I dont know the system personally... but I would...

    Just curious.... (have not read the entire thread).... are you stuck with a 5x5 area???? or is this still adjustable??? could do a 3x6 (1 less sq foot) run a pair of 400W HPS.... Fully light the area.... Using less power... and cost of fixture would be a LOT less.... Something to think...

    gal bucket for DWC playing with.

    It will depend on how much attention you give your girl..... DWC is all about Res size..... The larger you go the easier it is...... Less swing in PPM/PH... Gallon can be done.... I forsee HUGE root overgrowth though....Might have to actually trim some which make me want to cry ) .....

    Planning a new hydro setup

    only thing I see, why fill from the bottom of the buckets..... to get solution up to drain level you are gonna need a heck of a pump to pressure up 4 buckets....... Just fill from the top and oversize your drain lines to avoid overfilling. Make sure you keep a good eye on root growth to...

    a question prior to starting next indoor..

    Unless I am missing the point. (Which could be heh)... I would think 9 good mature plants (with 2-3 weeks veg) would outproduce 30 clones with 7 days veg in a 5x5x7 space...... UNLESS you are really in a hurry... I mean heh you could prune them to have several decent colas each.... But I...

    Hydro VS Soil

    Personally I like Hydro... I use DWC for the most part.... started with a drip system but all those lil lines getting clogged and other issues....DWC is the way to go...... buckets/airpump and stones you are GTG.. but I am a lazy hydro guy, I usually dont get in my grows for a couple days...

    What's going on.........

    as THG says.... take your veg light to 24/0 till she is growing good again....Re-veg is unnatural for an annual plant.... to properly achieve it... you have to give her some unnatural conditions.....
