I live in the US. Which type of air pump would you recommend using on 24 airdomes in an easy2grow 24 system - Posted by Joseph Marshall

Hi Joseph.... Ideally you are looking for a pump that delivers 20-30 litres / min ... Mirror the pipe work layout for the water.... large pipe reduced to the smaller pipe at each AirDome point. You might need to look at a few pumps as you will need to figure out how to attach the 1/2" pipe to the AirPump... Quite often the larger pumps come with a brass fitting that is screwed into the front of the AirPump... If the 1/2" pipe will fit on this great.... if not... either a Jubilee clip or a 1/2" straight connector pushed onto the brass fitting will do the job.... dont forget you will need to cap the end of each 1/2" pipe with a 1/2" end stop.... Try not to do your pipe layout in 1/4" pipe because it will not be enough or you will have to use quite a few pumps... Remember just mirror the pipework used to supply the water.... Josh...

I would like to try a kumquat tree in an XL pot. Are these available in the US? What media would you suggest for this...I was thinking of rock wool/clay pebbles Thanks, Allan - Posted by Allan Murphy

Hi Allan. Yes the 1Pot XL modules have just arrived in the US.... If you contact Marcel at he will be able to arrange delivery. Rockwool clay pebbles sounds like a great mix.... what are the requirements soil wise for a Kumquat tree, as far as I know free draining and they do not like wet feet so this this mix sounds OK... Which pebble are you using, if Hydroton please pH balance them first or alternatively simply use pH stable pebbles instead.

Hi Jeff, does the 200 gal reso. Have an attachment on the back to work in conjunction with a RO device? I want a collapsible reso, but want to set up a float valve on it to stop the flow. So I don’t have to babysit it. Please advise! Thanks!! - Posted by Kyle

Hi Kyle, Unfortunately the reservoirs don't have additional holes at the moment, you can however adapt the top of the tank to accommodate an attachment ..... you will need to support the connection with a section of wood or similar to support the connection between two legs...Josh...

Can the water source from tank be replaced by water from fish tank since Im intrested doing integrated farming AQUAPONIC - Posted by Aidi

Hi Aidi, yes you can do this .... however please be mindful that fish waster is really only suitable to grow/support leafy/herb type crops.... plants that require high levels of feed will not be supported enough from fish waste.....Josh...

Hello Josh, It seems the plants closer to the reservoir are drinking more and are larger. The reservoir bottom is about 3 inches higher than the black autopot and about 9 inches from the top of the autopot to the surface of the res water. How high does my reservoir need to be? I have the tube split right away going to 2 autopots on each side, total of 4. - Posted by Kevin

Hi Kevin... The delivery and position of your reservoir seems fine, do you have a hot spot/cold spot in your growing area, min height of the res should be around 6". The height of the res I don't think is the issue.... How do all the plants look are they deficient ... is your environment correct... temp and humidity 24 hours a day... Josh....
