  1. What size tubing? 1/4 or 1/2 Inch? also what size is the resevoir and where
    did you get the pump from??

  2. @watchdaride I don’t think so…

  3. @s0medo0od Yes, i do have a cover, I use this outside and you’re right it
    would be a mess. I have used an airstone, but the water that drains into
    the tank falls about 18 inches and creates some bubble and turbulence. I
    didn’t notice much difference when using stone and it was just one more
    thing the break and maintain…

  4. The light is used for seed starting tray. I bought a seed starter tray,
    with lid and wicking mat, place under the florescent shop lights. Rockwool
    starter cubes, no nutrients for 24/7 until true leaves form. Then I move to
    the garden.

  5. @kultofcows I think 6 inches on my original build, but on a re-do I’d space
    8 inches to give the plant more room. Something I learned, after growing.

  6. hey, how did you manage to become a youtube partner? do you have any advice
    you could give me? i will really appreciated it. thank you….

  7. were do you get the pump and its accessories from

  8. 1) Do you have a cover for that reservoir? It looks like a planter I’ve
    seen at home depot. Probably not a good idea if you don’t have a top…lets
    in contaminants and allows algae. 2) How come you’re not using an air stone
    or some other aerator in the reservoir? I would think that would improve
    the amount of oxygen in the nutrient solution. Otherwise great
    build…probably going to build the exact same thing. Thanks for the tips!

  9. u gotta change the watter fool every two weeks usually

  10. @kultofcows I think I answered you, but if not, I hang some fl tubes for
    seed starting.

  11. Hey I am willing to pay the 50$ for all the info. How do I proceed?

  12. Thanks a lot for your video. I also have the thorough step-by-step video
    directions on the way to grow your very own selfmade Aquaponic system. Its
    really easy that even your granny can do it! Take a look at here to acquire
    more information:

  13. The video also mentions 1.5″ holes that each are 8″ apart from the center
    of the hole. I count 7 holes on each channel. The specifications use a 48″
    pipe for the channel. One of these measurements must be wrong…how many
    inches are there between each hole?

  14. @kultofcows The light is used for seed starting tray. I bought a seed
    starter tray, with lid and wicking mat, place under the florescent shop
    lights. Rockwool starter cubes, no nutrients for 24/7 until true leaves
    form. Then I move to the garden.

    what is the ‘timing’ for this sistem run ? i mean is the nutrient thin film
    always recirculating or is stopped every XX minutes ? Thanks !

  16. i have a small room i was going to try this . Does the water give of an
    odor after a while? The room is beside my tv room

  17. Thank you for putting this together. Why is the light hanging BELOW the NFT
    system?
