Yeah, those airpots are nice. I like the large bed idea, but don't have enough clones to justify it right now. Starting all new stuff from seed, so it's gonna be a bit before everything is tested and selected. A bed grow sounds like it would be perfect for these, given what I've read so far.

Ok I got my first 60 BLumats set up today, piece of cake, took about one hour. Remember to open the carrot and fill the ceramic cone with water, then soak the thing in water for a day or so. Then they are ready to use! Use 3/32" plastic barbed tees from kentsystems.com, they fit the 3mm OD blumat tubing just perfect.

well they sound great, if this question has been asked please forgive me but i got tired of reading. can you hook these up to a sub pump and leave it on? I run a stadium grow and my res sits lower than my stadium trays, there all drained back to rez to catch the runoff.

You can hardline it to your spigot with a pressure reducer they sell. There is no power or electricity with these drippers.

You can't stop me. I'm like a weed. I might disappear for a moment or two, but I will pop up somewhere else and will never stop growing.

Anyone ever thought of going digital with pumps and soil moisture metres?? Getting a couple of these https://www.fourier-sys.com/pdfs/sens...ure_dt171a.pdf and going to make a bit of software for the pump controls.

an electronic digital blumat ... cool! I'd be interested!

You ever see the pump trigger on the phototrons? It had some kind of a glass encased sensor - looked almost like a lightbulb filament - that, when dry, would trigger the switch to the nutrient pump. Damn I wish I saved that thing. I suspect it also (or a switch mechanism like it) could be adapted to automatically trigger a nute feeding pump that would turn itself off when it sensed moisture.
