EBB AND FLOW SYSTEM
SMALL EBB AND FLOW SYSTEM
Part 4: The Reservoir
STOP! If you have just arrived at this website looking for an ebb and flow system, you might want to go back to page one of this mini-farm plan.
NOW, let's finish this project!
8. Make a “dipstick”
out of 1x1 stick or a wood dowel. Take the time as you add each 2
gallons of water to the reservoir bin to dip the stick in and mark the
dowel with permanent marker at each level. This will help you gauge the
nutrient level later without removing the top and plants.
9. Fill the black bin (reservoir) with 10 gallons
of water. Add a nutrient concentrate of choice. If you are using GH
Flora Series (recommended), add 10 tsp. each of the Flora Grow, Flora
Micro & Flora Bloom, (one at a time, in that order). [Order it in
quart bottles, link provided later]. Adjust the pH of the solution with a test kit
(more on this later, too). Plug in the bubbler and pump and test the
system for operation and leaks. Note: the setup must be on a level surface.
