Hydroponic fun Tall Tough Guy
Now FREE SHIPPING Continental USA Only
The tall tough guy is a updated version of the Tough guy listing.
I have added a separate pump bucket and moved the fountain pipe outside the tower.
Also adding a control valve for improved easy flow control. The tall tower has an additional 12 grow pods making it about 50 inches tall overall. The tower is rugged and friendly to use. The additional bucket provides stability in windy areas. The tough guy plus really works growing just about anything that has roots.
The second bucket doubles the working life before needing to add water and nutrient.
Another big advantage is the ease of accessibility of the pump. Just pull off the snap on cover and the pump is right there. The buckets are interconnected with a 3 inch settling space below the connection so their is lots of room for plant droppings to settle in the tower bucket isolating the pump from contamination. End of the season cleaning is facilitated with a hand tighten joiner between buckets. The union shown has been deleted
as being unessential. It is replaced with unions inside the bucket
The tower has just a few parts. 2 tough 5 gallon food grade pails, a tower made from pvc pipe with 36 grow pods mounted slanting down, screwed in place with a stainless steel screw that protrudes into the root area. trapping your planting in place as it grows around it. The grow pods are sealed to the tower ensuring that the nutrient/water flow is contained within the tower recirculating into the pails. Start from seeds or better and much easier, plant small seedlings with roots exposed and mostly washed off. Seedlings will grow with almost 100% success. Plant by splitting the foam plug around the plant stem above the roots and stuff it in a grow pod.
The nutrient, at least a full season is supplied. A couple tablespoons or less per gallon of water is stored in the pump pail. It will last well over a week in moderate weather. Tomatoes drink a lot and in hot weather and will need a little more attention. A high quality pump with only one moving part is provided. The pump runs continuously providing a constant visual aerated nutrient fountain to drizzle down inside the tower feeding the roots uniformly throughout the tower.
The adjustable flow pump is filtered and is readily accessed under a snap on cover on the pump pail.
Roots can be trimmed as the plants grow by lifting the tower out of the pail support collar mounted in the tower pail.
See the attached pictures of a grown sunflower surrounded with peppers, squash, herbs and tomatoes at the base. Even a mellon rests on the base area.
