I hear ya my friend. When I first got it I didn't even have the room ready and it was just sitting in the living room. It was killing me to not see this machine running. I ended up putting it all together. Huge mistake every hose with a barb I had to cut to get off and I had to bust it apart to get through growroom door. My wife came in the room as I was about to sweat to death and said something like what the he'll it shouldn't be that hard. I thought I did something wrong until I seen this site. I've been member of others but this place has more ic grows than all put together.

Good luck, it's a PITA, put the tight fit guarantees no leaks. Git-R-Done, we wanna see the porn!

I use KY brand Liquid lube I get the uniseal completly lubed up along with the PVC tube I can assembel 90 buckets in a 4 hr period Its pretty simple as long as you use a good amount of liquid lube..If this is your biggest problem you have then you should be happy in the end..Have a rag handy to wipe your hands off after applying the lube ..JACK

LOL! I always have a rag when using KY... wait, what are we talking about?

You don't mean that, you're just frustrated.........the number I've times I've thrown my hands up and said "fuck it, I'm done" over the past few months while building my room/system is almost uncountable, but I'm still plugging away.

You smoke a bowl, take a break, then get back on the horse........

Perhaps going to Home Depot and recruiting some cheap labor for an hour or two might not be the worst idea?

Just brainstorming here...........my arms are sore from fucking with PVC for the last three days as well, so your misery has some company.

Good luck man, we're all rooting for ya.

yes i will have to go to home depot and buy pvc pipe and connectors. i broke it tryin to pound in the endcap pvc piece with a rubber mallet

It is almost a two person job. Everyone already suggested what I would have. Broken how?

pvc shattered, yes it is a 2 person job and anyone wanting total grow room security can scratch that if getting this system. i like me being the only person who knows where my grow is. i like peace of mind

Bummer dude

I know exactly how you feel, I couldn't get my diy system together kicked the buckets a couple times. Stuff is frustrating. No wife gf or anything. I know what you mean about Security, there has to be one person you trust. More soap and lube the better

great guys at current culture. i spoke to them and they are sending me a new return manifold for free! i told them what happened and it was my fault and i broke it. i offered to pay for the replacement part but they told me that they really want to see me be able to use my system and offered to replace it for free as long as i payed for the shipping. really put an ease to all my frustration knowing that i am doing business with some standup folks that back their products 100%! thanks guys

i had a bitch of a time getting the pvc through the uniseals as well until i figured out a great way to do it.. i got on my knees with the bucket in front of me layed my chest with all my body weight to keep the bucket in place took the pipe with both hands and jammed it through... kinda like stabbing myself with a long pvc sword... it worked wonderful got all 10 of my buckets done in a half hour... I hope this can be helpful to you

Glad to here the boys at UC helped you out! Thats UPSTANDING to say the Least! With all the fuss about the uniseals being a bitch I used Bulk heads when I built my system They Seam to work out real nicely for me.

I must say that I'm glad you aren't gonna toss in the towel after a couple speed bumps Mr. GoodCat... I think the UC setup wasn't so bad after I used dishsoap and a little water on the outside of the PVC and on the inside edge the uniseals. Sure it took a little bit of elbow grease, but the UC System is solid and so are Dan and Christian at Current Culture... :cool

if all else fails for you getting the pvc though the uniseals take a small grinder and grind the edges of the pvc... once the pvc is all in the uniseal use soapy dishwater and slide the pipe to the desired legnth

Its been a while since I updated my thread so I figured I would show you guys what I have been up to. First off here is a 3D view of my room done by my homie TheCoolestMan. I will share some pics later after I button up my room but my pictures will not be nearly as good or as informative as this 3D. Thanks again bro!
