Recreating DoubleDs 10 LB MPB

Hello farmers,
Its time to get the old water chiller out of storage and give another run at MPBs.

I want to emulate DoubleDs 10 LB MPB as closely as possible and wanted to see what you guys are thinking about the plumbing.

It appears to me he is only using 2" PVC as drainage and has done away with 6" all together but there arent any definative pictures just clues as to what the acual plumbing is.

He shows us one bucket that has 2 2" PVC drains but other pictures appear to not have the same drains perhaps even only 1 2" PVC drain in some. It also looks as though the two drains are at different heights which makes me believe he is running them similar to an undercurrent with pumps going into each bucket.

Bucket ----2"PVC---- Bucket---- Res (with the outside bucket elevated)

This would explain why some buckets appear to have 2 2" PVC drains and others do not and it would also makes sense that this is the case

Also he talked alot of about this proving the strength of drippers / root chamber dimensions and I feel this is because he changed many of the elements of his system which he believed were causing the high yields (ie the the suana like splashing of water caused by the 6" PVC.

I also see alot of pumps sitting on the floor which may be being used to pump the water but I think this would be too complicated and the 2" Under Current style system is more plausible and very simple to recreate probably just air pumps to run those 16 air stones he has per chamber.

Any thoughts or experiences are appreciated....in fact encouarged.
 
Cant recreate something that didn't exist in the first place. Hes lucky if he pulled 3 lbs per plant. All show business. The only way anyone is even going to get close to numbers like that is by using my system. Just sayin. New thread coming soon.
LOL... I am really looking forward to a FINISHED thread with pics bud... I really hope this isnt going to be just another B.S thread with big claims and no proof like your last 3 threads youve started... And once again i have to state that with enough lighting any grower can pull 3lbs per plant for instance i can put 2-3k bare bulb vert lights around 1 20gal smartpot and hit 3 #'s easily with a medium veg time... Its all about faster veg times thats what you should really be stressing if your trying to sell a "new system"...If you can hit 3lbs per plant with a 3-4week veg time and under 1kw per plant thats when ill give you full and total props... I am very excited to see what youve been working on though your other builds have been very impressive but they just havent produced what youve preached
 
Also how about you go tell capulator that the MPB doesnt exist... Im pretyy sure his system will smash anything that you have or ever had and hes got proof in pics lol not just talk... Or you can check out gettogrow and his DIY UC that is absolutely smashing #'s... Put up a thread like either of those and you will get the respect that you deserve... I make DIY UC's and for cost/build time and production they cant be beat
 
I have ran one of DD's setups and it is a total pain in the ass....copied to the T and it still a nightmare to run...10 more steps and work at every turn, it never stopped....I beat it with an UC setup with 1/1000th the problems and work
To be quite honest i considered building a mpb a few years back when DD's thread was active.. But it seemed to be way to much unnessecary work, i began reading about the UC thanks to you TK and a few others here on the farm.. I have now built and managed 7 DIY UC systems for myself and friends and we all run them with great success.. I doubt i will ever change my way of growing to anything else, well except for when i start seeds those obviously dont go straight to the UC.. The UC is just so simple and effective with hardly any maintenance... I would like to thank you TK because of your threads years back you changed my life for the better
 
Be patient with me guy. I have something very BIG to show you soon...... I will be waiting for those props.
patiently waiting my dude.. i am honestly very excited to see what you got goin on, if it is anything like your other builds we are all in for a treat.. Your attention to detail and cleanliness of builds is among the best ive ever seen but i want to see a total jaw dropping grow from start to finish with quality and quanity of buds :)

Maybe just maybe it was all show and busniess by ed, but dont asume that it cant be done or he didnt do those #'s. i just finished a run with 4 trees and 9 1k's and let me tell you that we pulled 6.75 per tree. i havent had the time of day to jump on and post everything that happened but i will tell you that its possible and it will be done.

6.5 per plant huh lol.... I would LOVE to see that indoors... Pics or it didnt happen..
 
Me too, I have never ever seen a uc sys produce real trees. The suck and with a lot of roots in the way they really suck. I would love for someone to throw egg on my face with a pic. JK
you might want to check out gettogro on icmag he has some trees for sure.. its a diy UC it has slightly larger buckets.. i dont think hes hitting 6.5 per plant but still is hittin some crazy numbers... However i would still love to see your plants uc pro..

Also how about you go tell capulator that the MPB doesnt exist... Im pretyy sure his system will smash anything that you have or ever had and hes got proof in pics lol not just talk... Or you can check out gettogrow and his DIY UC that is absolutely smashing #'s... Put up a thread like either of those and you will get the respect that you deserve... I make DIY UC's and for cost/build time and production they cant be beat


Can you point me to a link of getto gro DIY UC? Can't seem to find it.

I must say I would lose on the cost as mine are probably the most expensive tanks out there, but for quality and design I would put them up against anything I have seen. JK
 
dammit lol how did you screw up the quotes.. i just quoted myself it was meant to quote your last comment

JK im not sure what your trying to say?? what type of setup do you have?? you have your profile page private i cant see it.. and i cant find it anywhere
