20 gal system.
Each bucket holds about 2 1/2 gal... 8 growing buckets and a control bucket and res which sits outside tent.

What is your method of growing.. I need to find the rdwc growers thread :)
The only such thread that I seen was the current culture. I don't think my Lil setup will get much attention in that thread unfortunately. Most the ppl I talk to on here grow in coco...

And there's not really any way to modulate or control the humidity levels you get stuck with it on or offyou could always just adjust the speed of the fan but the changes are going to be very little especially to 16 kW setup
There was a post earlier that said the temp of the resivor (sp) controlled the rooms dew point and would affect humidity.
I think the temp you set on your chiller is how you set humidity. This is more than just water running through pipes.

Cold floor in basement keeps water at 64.
I added a aquarium heater to bring it up to 68.
It now stay at 68 to 69.

Ahhh, a cold floor. That is clutch. Mine is at 65.3 right now, want to bump it up to 66.5. Found a $600+ chiller on craigslist last weekend and scooped for $64. I lucked out

Gonna bring this back from the d e a d vs starting a new thread.

I have a 2.5g cloner I want to mod and use a water chiller to keep water temps under 78*. I only need to drop 3-4* at most.

I have no problems acquiring any fittings, piping, etc.

I set up my aero cloner to recirculate water through a chiller .it took them forever to root.i think the warmer the water the better for cuts.
Made me look into pool shock and after that everything went perfect.

I have a strain that's a temp bish. 1 of 18 I run have this issue. Aside from just putting them on my cold basement floor last night, chilling the water is needed.

If I didn't like this strain, I would never even bother.

Just a bullhead fitting in the bottom with the water sucking out going through a chiller,than a return line back to the tank.or you can use ice bottles if you have the time to sit around and babysit them.

My buddy has a spare minute timer thing. I'll try that before dishing out 300 for a chiller. 1 on, 4 off 24/7.

I know this thread is years old but I just wanted to say that Google Sketch Up as someone mentioned earlier is complete garbage. If you want decent 3d drawing software get SolidWorks.

Timer set as best as I could get it.
52 seconds in, 4:55 seconds off. In the one cloner I swapped the new pump 8n, water temps are 77.1*. In my other 2 with old pumps, 81.1*. I'll solve swapping out all my old pumps as well today.
