Lol not a fan of the floaflex? I guess we all need to find out for ourselves haha.Any type of anti siphon or vacuum break works. I get mine from the irrigation supply house. They thread into a fitting so just run a T off of my line. You can brew a home solution up just easier for me to run those when I needed to since I'm at the irrigation supply house quite often locally. They will leak water so just make its over a part of the table or rez to collect the runoff. What u said should work fine. Just armed with that going into it and watching it when you test the lines and know what to look for you will be fine. I made the mistake and went to bed and emptied my first 40 gal rez onto the table and overflowed my collection rez first day when I went to drip .
I keep my lines wet but salts, sterile and no organics. You shouldn't have a problem keeping them wet with bennies or PBP since you wont go more then 24 hrs without fresh coming through the line. I would just flush the lines after a round with H202 or Bleach to make sure to clean them out and avoid any problems over time.
1 dripper is fine if using 1/4 in up to 6in/slab. 1/8in I would def run redundant backups. Pressure can help with this some but 1/8 is notorious for clogging. Why I avoided it like the plague. 1/4 I have never had a problem with clogging (pure salts and with stuff like LK added). 1/8in is good if going with hole punch and 3/4-1in flex tubing you want to rip out and replace for more commercial settings or if you like that approach.
Saw a buddy for a little this weekend that was back in town doing some things. Told me on transplanting clones to blocks a good trick they have been doing in the warehouses is transplant to a dry cube with a soaked rooter. Watch them for the first 1-2 days and then water down the block. Says it avoids the 5 day stall on transplant and they basically get to eating right off the bat. Said to use caution since it's easier to kill a clone this way and just to watch them. Makes sense to me.
Lol if you want some floraflex's I got you. Have a grip sitting on a shelf.
Thanks again for the tips man. Much appreciated.
