Are those valves sticking out of the pour spouts gonna make sense to me when you start bottom feeding them?:face_with_monocle:

@OlyBoy I hook up 1/2 tubing to fill up the reservoir from my 5 gallon bucket to water them with a aquarium pump. I have a spinal cord injury so I have a hard time standing and lifting heavy items. If you go to The Grobucket Test group thread I showed what I did step by step.

@OlyBoy a picture of the rest of my high tech watering system!


The lines inside the bucket are 1/2 gallon marks.

Is it automated watering all plants at once or do you use that to hand water with?

I water each bucket individually with the tubing attached on each grobucket, that way I can control how much each plant needs and gets. I used to have it setup with a manifold and watered the whole tent at one time, however some plants got to much and some didn’t get enough. I just attached 1/2 inch tubing to my modification to the grobucket, then just swap out the tubing to the water pump. I use a 400 GPH aquarium pump it only takes a few seconds to water each individual grobucket. I’m working on putting a float valve in each grobucket to use a reservoir for future use.

Oh I get it. Grow buckets. So they’re self watering you just have to fill them up every once in a while kind of like filling up a nutrient tank.
