Hi Pepes

Just wanted to say reguarding the Spinners that they work great.I have 2 in my small aero cloner that I had posted a page or 2 back.I've been using them for quite some time now and rarely had one fail.The key is to run a high enough pump to get them to spin fast thus creating a very fine spray.I had even taken a picture (Which is in my posting) and their spining so fast you can barley see the spray.You really have to look closely at the pic.

Any way thats my 2 cents worth.I know,I know it doesn't add up to much lol.

King Ralph,
do you run you pump 24/7 or do you have it on a timer?

snowdog it runs 24/7. plug n play err wait

damn skippy G, can't argue with roots can we hehe

ocanabis alrighty, i have seen folks get success with the spinners all the time, so yeah, if someone can only get the spinners instead of the sprayers, then they oughtta go for 'em. like ya say, needs a bit more pressure for fast spin/long throw/good mist so fewer spinners than sprayers... the balance between few enough for good pressure and enough for good coverage is cloudy though... i haven't fiddled with them so i wouldn't know what power pump or how many spinners for a large scale system, i've only seen them like yours and in 5gal buckets sure is better than nothin though! thanks for sharin a successful alternative mister.

ah cmon Harry... a lil sawin, a couple drill holes, some hand screwin n you're in action! like G says ya can do it without a smoke break even it's so quick n easy!

hehe peace all

Hi King Ralph

I guess I should have included this I'm using a Pondmaster magnetic drive pump.It's rate is 190 gph.Fact is I can't believe I don't have root rot cause the water temp is 90 df.I tried runnig an aeroponics system in the past.I'm thinking the pump I was using at the time was under rated.The water droplets were not as fine as this aero cloner.Which brings me to believe it works because of the high volume gph.I think these 2 pics pretty much tells it all.It almost makes me wana set up my old Aeroponics system again except with a larger pump(which I have).

hey ocan, they look great... ya should def give your aero system another whirl. i've used an aero/nft and it was great, def not fine mist spray but still worked wonders, maybe it was somethin else? an yeah it's great all the oxygen high temps aren't much of a worry good luck with the aero setup man

gonna snag round 2 of cuts later, i'm gonna try to get rootin time down... will let yas know if i come up with anythin useful... peace n green thumbs all

I just cut the bottom half of the pot's off. I didn't have a problem after that. You might want to give it a try King. No need to waste the net pots. Love the thread and lots of info.
Take care all,

Work hard, lololol. You know i hate to waste anything. I ran into that same problem back with my first unit. I was ripping roots and breaking them. I got alittle upset also. Once you get these units dialed in. Roots form pretty quick and you got to keep a close eye, but you already knew that. That's why i cut the bottom half of the net pots. Then i don't have to worry about roots growing out the bottom of the little slit's. They just grow out a open bottom half once cut. It works out so nice. Glad, everyone is getting so much out of your thread.
Take care,
B to the G, lolol

the spinner was also like $1.75 vs $0.30...not worth it to me to have another variable that will prolly break at some point.
i agree

also its harder for the small green sprayers to get clogged because they have a bigger size hole and the water just splashes and deflects off the top piece.
