bruce don: Do u let it run all the time or is it on a timer? When you stat out the roots are very short so it drips water on the plant is that right?then u don't need rocks or perlite in the bucket ?and will it grow faster with the perlite up to the roots?

Josh B: If you want to drill cleaner holes in PVC with a paddle bit, put your drill in reverse while drilling. The paddle bits dug in to much and that's why it chips. If you drill it in reverse it will shave off smaller bits of plastic and leave a perfect clean hole. 😉
Seebe Carver: Melbourne area?
The Pish: Great setup... BUT... you'll have big issues using white buckets... either paint black with spray paint then paint white over the black... blocks light from the roots... roots HATE sunlight... or wrap the buckets well with something to block. paint is easiest

k johnson: a general rule of thumb for plastics look at the recycle # (inside a triangle made up of 3 arrows) these are safe, “One, four, five and two, all of these are good for you.” so a #3.6.7 not so much
k johnson: to much pvc pipe, new studies are showing leaching of chems from the pipes into water, mostly the stabilizers used in forming the plastic, as well as dyes and other chems. I would suggest switching the larger drain pipe to a study heavy duty hose or make a gravity filter where the water drains back in the bucket. i have a tower style that i am trying to come up with a way to replace the pvc pipes
Jestin Case: bury the tub under the ground
