Clear (transparent) air lines for DWC
I'm just getting into hydroponics and am building a small DWC system. Is it OK to use clear air lines? I can understand using black for water to prevent algae, but algae in air lines isn't a problem is it?
on the air line you will get a build up of minerals on the outside of the line were it is in the water [no biggie]
the air stones I have been using have been getting plugged up from time to time and I just soak them in hydrogen peroxide for a few days and that seems to clear them up
hope this helps
