Just wondering just pulled out a older UC 6 system that over time has lost parts etc and thinking its time to put her back to use

Anyone know a reasonable place to purchase UC bulk heads pipes and misc filters etc lids

PVC piping can be picked up locally. Maybe not at the big box stores (they often don't have the bigger sizes) but certainly at a good plumbing supply house. Uniseals are readily available on eBay as well as filters and tubing. Some things might only be available from Current Culture. I've never seen their 8 and 13 gallon buckets anywhere but on their site.

I understand that fully diy under current projects are all over the net .
at a cheaper price uni seals are cheap but they also tend to leak after time.
Its a accident waiting to happen.
8 - 13 gallon pails are not cheap if you want to go that route.. lids also were not cheap

But when you have 3/4 of parts for undercurrent system but missing few  i found a place
just trying to keep it complete

forget those uni seals and upgrade to the bulk heads never worry about leaks again.http://shop.gyostuff.com/Under-Current-Spin-Tight-Bulkhead-3-UCSPINTIGHTBULK3.htm
Nice that is much better price for bulk heads 10 buck savings per
with others coming in might become a good soure for people looking to build or purhase anything ..

I 100 percent agree undercurrents prices are inflated with a high mark up.
But like any company they need to make some money

While back i searched for 8 gallon buckets and 13 gallon buckets i nearly shit at the cost of them alone this is just googling plastic bucket suppliers etc
its not wonder we see so many Rona or home depot pails in DWC lol compared to ones like undercurrent uses .

Personally i like the square bucket style allows for better stability , better bulk head placement ( with out leaks )

Thanks for the link going to order some extra bulk heads for possible extra modules in the future ..
have a friend working at a Hospital that has been saving these for me road salt so as winter approaches will have a shit load to even make some more seperate units maybe one for green house :) on solar tea based

I've personally never had a uniseal fail on me after 2 years + of use in several rain water collection barrels. What specific parts are you looking for?

Sorry, no pictures. My camera busted awhile back and I haven't replaced it yet. My setup is two UC8XL systems with a DIY 8 site RDWC veg system. 1/10 hp chillers on each, 30 gallon top offs on the UCs. Both UCs are lit with 2 Kind XL1000 LEDs each. One system has T5HO side lights and the other has strip LED side lights. Mini split heat pump, CO2 burner, RO with UV. Best yield so far was about .8 grams per watt.
