only a 1/2 hp pump
not that loud
not that big
but yes pricey
im ok with burning a cheapo (50 or less) pump up once or 2x a year IF IT WORKS
same way i might could be ok with buying a NICE pump for 200$ - if it works well for 2 years im spending the same to get the same
if it works
those prefab drip lines are looking better and better, maybe next run
i've been contemplating setting up another 4x4 breeding tent soon - it needs to happen
got a couple males to pick from - this IBL bubba kush is real tempting to dust EVERYTHING with, i'm a big fan of strong dopey bubba's and a pal of mine has a couple clones of his KILLER pre-98 bubba kush cut for me, one of which i would throw into the breeding tent along with a slew of other females.
That's how I use the pressure regulator. It's a cheapo. Pump systems use a better kind that's adjustable. The pump cycles against the accumulator at a higher pressure than what comes out of the regulator for constant delivery & pressure in domestic water systems.
The newest soaker hose is the 3/8" miracle grow stuff from Home Despot. Some of the older stuff is 1/2" or so, basically the same thing.
