BigToke i am sure you do that monster of a tutorial you put together on bio buckets is a one of a kind.As i have said on other messages boardes when asked about bio buckets,I throw a link to BigTokes bio bucket tutorial as its the absolute best bio bucket tutorial out there and maybe the best tutorial i've seen to date...

Thanks for the sticky,I'll do my best to keep it informative...

drainline and thangs

peace blaze, i have a coupla questions if u don't mind, i notice that most of ur drain fittings and such are at the bottom of the bubbler, do u worry about res. overflowing should there be a power outage or pumpv failure, i notice most recommend feed and drain be up high and on opposite sides, therefore if any probs with the pumps the runoff wouldn't over flow the res.? am i missing something with ur setup? also how r u calculating how much water is needed to keep the bubblers flow level constant? this is one of the best tutes i've come across...peace!

Thanks for stopping by

I told you i would get one up lol,Plenty of people in need of a good recirculating dwc tutorial,And now that og is gone i dont know if there is one around so here it is,Glad you can make use of it.

This system uses gravity to keep the water level constant,That and a float valve for auto topping off,Electric or power outage will never cause an overflow in this system,Or pump failure,However it will cause the water/nutrient solution to go stagnant so its always good to keep some battery operated air pumps around just incase.The waters flow is kept constant and calculated by the the pumps output devided by the total water capacity of the system.In my case 50 gallons system capacity,a 264 GPH pump so 264/50=5 so i will get 5 full exchanges per hr.

only overflow if a clog were to accur in the return line,But thats the only way and its unlikely that a clog will accur using the 3/4" ID tubing.

peace blaze, i 'preciate the the detailed answer to my questions, so my tubs are 10 gal. each, thats 20 gal. total, my rio 1100 powerhead is rated 300gph/20 = 15 times per hour, is that too much?? now water volume is next thing thats confusing, 2 x 35L = 70 liters of water in the buckets right! now how much is needed in the res? is it 1/2 the volume of the buckets? i notice that ur res volume seems very shallow, last but not least, adding benefical bacteria to the tubs, and please lets not turn this into a debate over systems, but if u add the larva rocks to each plants tubs via net pots, isn't this essentially a bio system w/o the waterfall? oxygen added via airpumps and/or powerheads in the tubs, school me if i am wrong...

Ok first i think your confusing the res with the controller,The reservoir holds as much as the system capacity,For example i run a 12 bucket system each bucket holds about 3-3&1/2 gal plus the controller holds about 9-12 gallons,So around 45-50 gallons total system capacity,So my res is a 45 gallon trash can basically holds as muhc as the system,This allows as much as 2 weeks between res changes if the grower wanted.

The controller holds as much as needed to keep water level 1" below net cups its set by bending the float valve and adjusting after filling up.Im not even going to get into the bio/dwc thing.We will say it would be a dwc grow using beneficials thats all nothing more nothing less...
