Going to be running the Aqua-x from Trolmaster for my irrigation.
I'm going to have one rez that feeds both my flower room and veg room (same nutes/different feed schedules)

I want to split each room into a zone (zone F, zone V) so I would need 2 solenoids for that.

Now, I want to split the Flower room into its own two zones (zone F1, zone F2).

How should I set my lines up? Can I do two zones leaving the pump (F, V) and then add another two solenoids inside my F room?

Or do I just make 3 zones coming off the pump (zone F1, zone f2, zone V)?

I would personnaly choose the 3 zones coming off the pump directly. If any maintenance is required, or even for the installation itself, I would find it more easyer to regroup them. If your both flowering at the same time and have similar feed, you may use 2 T and joint the line with a check valve so one would be independant ( or extra ) and the other wouldnt. Im having a little issue somehow with how would you make sure your plant at the end of flowering wouldnt be overfed if they get the same nutes as one you about to turn into flower...but that magic is within your hand and i hope it goes well !

I’m running jacks so veg and flower weeks 2.5-7 are the same jacks 3-2-1 feed. Will have to hand water or make diff mixes only for week 1-1.5 and the last two weeks of flower.
Appreciate your input on the zones. I think 3 from the pump will be the way to go.
