First off sorry for all the posts I have been making.

How do you manage run off? Don't know why but Im baffled.

I use a little rechargeable milwaukee wet/dry vac. It's a great tool for the grow room and makes short work of run off. Hangs on the wall when not in use

I use the Floraflex system for runoff. I have been told by some growers that are way smarter than me that letting your plants sit in runoff is a bad idea. Anyway, here are some pics of my runoff system. The pump just sends the runoff into a bucket outside the tent. All my outdoor plants get some real nice nutrients regularly. HAHA.

How does one butt chug it? I'm making a big ass mess every time I water.
Sounds like he's not getting much run off and letting the plants absorb the excess back in from the trays.

You shouldn't be getting that big of a mess unless you're watering too fast or have some hydrophobic soil and it's just running strait through. Try watering slowly, a sprayer really helps with this

I've got a reservation set up for sure. I let em drip than move everything and clean up run off. Pain in the ass

I'm ghetto right now. I seen nice water cans but I need other shit more. I atache this to a gallon and squeeze. Works for now. I just recently up potted. The 3 gal pots barely leaked. These 5 gal leak a whole lot more

Fabric pots, let the run off sit for 20 to 30 mins after watering and then clean up with a clean towel what is left. You will get crazy roots at the bottom like a hard chunk. Some people bottom water exclusively, I just let them drink what they want
