A small one will work for one bucket. one for a 10 gallon tank.

Should I buy a fish tank water heater.?
If the rez falls below 62-65 I would.

Is there anything else I need.?
I like using GH3 part in hydro. really simple and easy. Also a measuring device, I like using syringes

You will need air stones also.

Do not scrimp on your air pump--get larger than you believe you need--fish are different than plants. I would get one for at least a 20 gal tank. You want it to look like the water is boiling in there. I run 6-8 buckets off a 110 liter per minute pump and my vegging room with 3 buckets runs on a 45 liter per minute pump. I run 2 stones in every bucket.

You said water pump from Lowes? Are you going to run a top feed system or are you going to run dwc? If dwc then you will need a really nice air pump like THG said and some good air stones. If you are running a top feed in a single bucket then don't buy a water pump from lowes as that will wash away the plant rather than just water it. Go to the pet store and buy a 80-120gph pump to use as that will give you a softer flow of water. Also you will still need to get a decent air pump and stone to aerate the water.

As far as a ppm meter, Hanna makes a nice ppm pen or you can get an EC meter. Either will work fine unless you intend to run organic. If you run organic, I have heard and read that the EC pen is more accurate because the ppm pens read the salt content, which is very low in organics. :)

Hay Hushpuppy thanks but I was thinking about putting a relief valve on so it wouldn't pump so hard to top and the extra flow will move the water around from the Bottom, but I will go check out the pet store, well darn I was in that area today..
I got a Aqua Culture 5-15 gallon single Aquarium Air Pump, Pump up to 1200cc per min...And air stone This should be ok.?
Here at my grow shop they have a Nice PPM pen for about 60 bucks and was thinking about getting it there and have some type of warranty, the guy there has been helping cut my cost down a little since I do my business there, and handing out his cards everywhere to bring him business..!! :D

That is a good idea on the pump being used to move around the water in the rez. I don't think that air pump will be enough(not sure) the best thing would be to try it in a sink of water or fish tank so that you can see how much air it is putting out. You want a lot of air boiling in there to keep that water aerated and oxygenated good. The ppm pen sounds good. make sure you ask if that one needs to be kept in a stabilizing solution when not used. Some pens have to be kept wet so the bulbs won't go bad.

I am going to try that with this air pump..
yea the guy at the shop told me that too about the ph & ppm pen need to stay in fresh water all the time and he can get me a set of both PH and PPM meter all in one for about 200 bucks but I can't afford that and just wipe it off and good to go til next test..

My partner got this meter a while back and absolutely loves it. It is expensive but stays calibrated good and having 1 meter that does all makes it very convenient. hxxp://www.discount-hydro.com/products/Milwaukee-3--in-1.html

I am a bit confused as to your lighting. You say you got a 400 watt HPS, with a conversion bulb. Then you say you got a 1000 watt HPS bulb??? What is the 1000 watt bulb for?? You can't run a 1000 watt bulb, in a 400 watt light???
Just wondering??
I use Fox Farm trio, and am happy with the results, but I am a dirt farmer, not Hydro.

Yea u r confuse...
My 400 watt HPS system is HPS and I bought a 400 watt Conversion bulb for the HPS System that I use for my Veggie room..
My 1000 watt HPS system is for my Flowering room..
And No I CAN'T put my 400 Watt bulbs in my 1000 watts system nor I Cannot put the 1000 watt into my 400 watt HPS system, that would screw thing up and be Costly........

Yea went back and read my post again and forgot to put System in behind Bulbs....
