AquaBuckets Feeding Chart

AquaBuckets 4 in a nutshell: It is a modular recirculating hydroponic design consisting of a nutrient "Heart" and a series of 4 or expandable to 8 planters. You lay out the system as you would potted plants....from a small balcony to an entire garden area. This system is gravity fed. Simply add Water and Nutrient to the "Heart". Transplant your seedlings or clones and let it grow for you. You will add and adjust your nutrient every 1-5 days.  Need to go out of town with no one to water your plants for you? AquaBuckets can be retro fitted with a 55 gallon reservoir for automated watering up to 2 weeks. AquaBuckets can be modified to add or remove plant sites up to 8 cells. Keep in mind that Deep Water Culture may require a Water Chiller to maintain adequate root zone temperatures. Water Chillers easily attach to existing AquaBucket systems. AquaBuckets is a Deep Water Culture Kit and is intended to be modified and perfected by you, the hobby grower.

AquaBuckets is a  recirculating direct water culture systems (also known as RDWC) use a reservoir to provide water for multiple buckets.
Outdated methods using unconnected buckets require individual testing for PH  and PPM. This has led to innovations that combine use of air stones and connecting multiple buckets together and recirculating the water (AquaBuckets).  Constant recirculating oxygenates the water and ensures a good mix of nutrients CF and stabilizes PH throughout the entire system so testing is required only at one point, which would be at the 'HEART'.

 

Compare AquaBuckets vs. "Current Culture"
Direct Water Chill Capable (Maintains consistant water temperatures in each cell, not possible with "Current Culture")
Less growing medium to clean or throw away ("AquaBuckets" 6" net pot vs. "Current Culture" 8" net pot)
Less Flashing (Toxic Salt Build Up) Smaller net pots equals less flashing. Remember DWC is all about the water, not the growing medium.
Tethered Cell Technology (non fixed plant sites)
Less expensive
Lower shipping cost
Free Technical Support with purchase


Versatile grow configuration allows for plant sites to be moved around up to 1 foot in any direction, even in the middle of a grow cycle. Save energy by using a 400 watt while plants are small, and then switch to 600 or 1000 watts during flowering.

AquaBuckets 4 Site fits 3' x 3' (400 watt), 4' x 4' (600 watt), and 5' x 5' (1000 watt) grow spaces.

AquaBuckets 8 Site fits in spaces as small as 4' x 6' and as large 8' x 8'.

200 mesh filter attaches inside the "Heart" to keep drip lines free and clear of all sludge and debris. Use Organic plant food without the fear of clogged lines.


Afraid of Hydroponics? Think it will be too technical for you? This will be the easiest gardening you've ever done. The whole idea behind AquaBuckets is to make high-performance, hydroponic gardening simple and available for anyone. Our automated systems do the job for you day in and day out, 365 days-a-year: no watering, no weeding, no worrying about what will happen if you go on a two-week vacation. Keep your water temp, PH, and PPM in the appropriate range and this system will preform
exceptionally.

    go with the 5 gallon system. 3.5 gallons is too small.

    I bought one of these systems to use in my 4' x 4' grow tent. Transplanted 4 weeks ago, and induced flowering 2 weeks ago. Two weeks into flowering and my tent is completely full.
