Recirculating Deep Water Culture Systems
Now growers can have both power and control with our new recirculating Bubble Pot DWC-R system. By super-oxygenating the root zone and recirculating the nutrient solution this system delivers incredible results.
Reliable, easy to use and maintain. With no waste and little growing medium required.
Bubble Pot DWC-R ensures that pH and EC levels remain consistently stable across the entire syste, due to the unique combination of a drain pump and a self-leveling float system.
- Maximum nutrient update
- Rapid root zone formation
- Low maintenance
- Automated drain & return system
- Proven DWC results
- Greater pathogen resistance
Bubble Pot DWC-R
The Basement Lighting DWC-R system provides a growing technique where large vibrant plants can be grown in only 1 litre of clay pebbles [clay
included]. This is because the plants are supported in heavy duty net pots that are suspended over a heavily oxygenated nutrient solution.
This is known as DWC – deep water culture – or bubble pots.
This method is a super effective and efficient way of growing big strong plants with the only consideration being the maintenance of pH and EC
level in the individual pots. This can be tricky and time consuming, however the is overcome with our DWC-R recirculating pot system!
This kit is available in a number of sizes and is completely modular. Pots can be added or removed to your requirement with a minimum of fuss.
The timer on the central control pot activates and controls the return pump. Pumping nutrients solution out of the system and returning it to
the reservoir remixing and filtering it on it’s way back to the pots. A simple float valve on the control pot shuts off the flow when the
correct level is reached in every pot. This process can be repeated as often as required to achieve uniform pH & EC readings.
Across the system all nutrient adjustment and addition is done at the reservoir and returns evenly distributed to each pot. Our DWC-R are both
easy to assemble and maintain.
Kits come in a variety of sizes:
6 – 8 – 10 – 12 – 16 – 20 – 24
- 90l- 225L tank
- 1 x timed control pots
- 1 moulded T piece per pot
- 1 connecting gland per pot
- 6-24 20 Litre bubble pots
- 1 x 2 inch ball air stone per pot
- 1 x flow control tap
- Air pump
Deep water culture (DWC Hydroponics), whilst being on growers must try list, for many has become their most preferred method of growing. Compared to other systems Deep Water Culture (DWC Hydroponics) is very effective whilst being great value for money.
How does DWC work?
As the name implies the plants sit above, whilst the roots are constantly submerged in a deep water nutrient solution. This is made possible by pumping a constant flow of defused air through the nutrient solution in each individual pot.
PH and EC testing and control can be time consuming and laborious as the readings tend to fluctuate between each individual pot. These and other concerns including basic maintenance and keeping the pots fresh and pathogen free is all but eliminated by not only pumping air through but by constant or timed nutrient re-circultation.
The DWC-R and Root Rapid deep water culture hydroponics systems offer growers the power and control to easily overcome potential problems and drawbacks. These systems, by not only oxygenating the nutrient solution, but by either timed or constant nutrient circultation combined with constant filtering maintain uniform PH/EC readings in every pot allowing you to get a complete system overview by taking readings from either the control pot or the nutrient tank.
