if there was only something you could push into the tube so that when the water is coming out it would spray out or something. regardless, they do look good!!

lol like microbubblers? i don't have enough head pressure to run em. could likely devise something to distribute the solution a little more effectively though

well, got it mounted. not where I wanted, this damn thing is taking entirely too much headroom but there was simply no way I was getting it mounted where I initially planned. just have to be super mindful about height this round, i guess.

Enfun EF-2000 x 6 installed on custom racks. Tuned to 240w a pair via a kilawatt meter for a total of 720w @ 100%. All three sets run Samsung LM301B diodes and Meanwell XLG 240 H AB drivers.
just a thought...gain some height this way if needed tho....ymmv

Keep up the good work man!
Considered that but it's a trade-off for floor space, which is also at a premium with my setup. Originally I was going to push through the filter in the closet that I dump the exhaust into, but the filter is about 3" too long to fit where I intended on placing it. Sucks but it is what it is. If height becomes a problem, will figure something else out, like maybe taking a 45 degree piece of hard ducting and angling the filter in the closet, should gain the necessary distance and give the 14ish inches of height back to the tent.

much better, not so fuzzy lookin. interesting to see the different pheno expressions, though all of em are running pretty indica dom from the early veg looks.

given they're f2s you should see a pretty awesome variety of phenotypes. maybe even spitting images of grandma and grandpa. stoked to see how things go for ya on this one!

as i was getting ready to refill the res, I noticed some brown lookin shit in the bottom, and the remaining water was tinted. so, decided to go ahead and resterilize the res. scrubbed it down with dawn dish soap, give it a quick once over with clorox wipes then soak it with sniper and leave it sit till it's dry.

not sure if it's silica crashing out (have seen it before with both protekt and power si), something else crashing out, or some kind of bacterial culture kicking into gear since I haven't had h2o2 until Friday, and I won't add it without knowing exactly how many gallons I'm adding it to.

the plants are saturated enough they can last a few hours without a fertigation cycle while I remake a fresh res using the super long-winded process (see https://www.thcfarmer.com/threads/dwc-rdwc-and-recirculating-sysyem-top-up-explained.120834/) just to ensure whatever is crashing out, if anything, is identified and i can remedy it. otherwise, h2o2 should take care of any unwanted living things taking up space where they're not welcome. in case you didn't know, i'm a sterile kinda guy. only shit i want living is the shit i planted.

Was it brown and kinda like loose algae that was scraped off and Settled on the bottom?

If so just harmless diatoms. They usually feed of silicates and often seen with a water source thats not established a large microbial population yet

kinda, yeah. similar substance to algae. most came right off with the shower head set on massage mode, whatever remained required a light scrub.
