I built your 16 plant garden
I am new to this hydroponic system. I built your 16 plant one, Mr. Ron.
Of course I had leaks all over the place but my observations were.
I was expecting the water to completely drain from the system. However it did not. It wont hurt the root systems to be under water? Does the water stay there till the plants use it up? Have I done something wrong?
How long do I run the pump?
How many minutes an hour do i do this?
\ The overflow worked well. I am not sure what to expect.
You need to save that seal that is in the bottle caps and cut a hole in it and put in back in the cap. Or go buy rubber washers at the hardware store.
The garden will stay full until the pump shuts off. Then the water drains back through the pump to the container.
Until the plant roots are soaked then drain immediately.
3 times an hour
