My Setup so far
 
Here's what I have so far. I've had it up and running for a bit now but it seems it's project after project. I'm using a Verti-Gro system and playing with a few other things as well
Getting ready

Started building a building around the injector board

Figured out I needed to start all my own seeds so

It worked pretty well the hardest part was providing the right amount of nutrients with wasting a bunch

I have another new system that I'll try to get some pics of in the next couple days

GpsFrontier 01-07-2012 02:46 AM

I haven't looked at all your posts yet (it's a long thread), but did you know you can post up to 20 pictures in each post without making it a mile long?

When creating the post scroll down to about the middle of the page, and in the "Additional Options" section just click on the "manage attachments" button. Then just click on the browse button to attach the pictures. It shows five openings at a time. Attach the first five, then the second five once the first five have uploaded, and so on until you reach the limit of 20 pictures. They become thumbnail images at the bottom of your post, but when clicked on they expand to the full size picture. That keeps the page/s from being a mile long. Not to mention much easier to navigate the different pictures.

I would like to know more about how your injector system works? Also how your poly film holds up in high winds?

Actually I like the larger pics it's a pain to have to click on every photo to see them

I'm not running a recirculating system so the well water comes in from the well on the right goes through a filter than the first injector draws in the nutrients and the second one draws in the calcium nitrate then it goes out through an irrigation valve controlled by the irrigation timer to the right zone. The second timer on the board runs my misting system. My PH adjustments are done in the first tank.

So far the clips are holding the plastic alright but I did have to put a screw into each clip to keep them from popping off

How do the injectors know how much to inject?

Near the bottopm of the injector there's an adjuster for the amount that is injected per gallon of water. I'll try to get a decent picture of it tomorrow

Very impressive Piney!

I am curious to hear if this project is "for market", and if so how is it going? Love the setup, are those injectors from crop king?

I'm working on some marketing but more trying to figure out what I'm doing at this point hopefully as time goes I'll start marketing more stuff. The injectors are not from Crop King but they may very well sell the same brand and model

Pineywoods 01-18-2012 01:19 AM

Gps here's a picture of the adjustment on the injectors you pull a lock pin and screw it up or down to where you want it set at then put the pin back in

Here's my latest system it is a recirculating system and while have I sugar and snow peas in it right now my main purpose in getting it was for lettuce production.

Love the set up. Where did you get your greenhouse? We're looking at getting something a bit bigger then we had last year.

I got the bigger Greenhouse from Verti-Gro

T'Mater 01-19-2012 11:25 PM

Does your nute tanks seem to stay a decent temp? Big problem i had last year was my temp's hit 100. And we're renting so i can't put the system in the ground.
