Greetings Farmers,

Like many I have had problems with DIY cloners, primary issue being leaks.

One other problem I have always had with my cloners is the amount of nutrients they use, average being 4 to 5 gallons of solution.

Leaks of course force you to use more solution, which cost more money. While topping of the solution things can be knocked out of wake slowing the clones down a few days.

I was also interested in a cloner that used less solution but with more then 5 sites. LOL

So I came up with The Cutty Cloner 3000, made from the same buckets I RDWC with. The flip lid locks perfectly with No Leaks! :party0042:

Once the prototype was build and running I thought why not link these up via uniseal and PVC?

I added a top of Res with a 6-inch air stone and quick connect fitting to a float valve in the first cloner.

Now I can load my cloner and go smoke one for 7-10 days with no work at all!:icon_spin:
