@mizzrubble Planting in the dirt is a fine idea, if you happen to be fortunate enough to have enough dirt to grow in, and dirt that is good enough quality to grow good food in – and the majority of the population doesn’t have either one. I have eaten hydroponic strawberries, yes, and ones that were excellent in flavor. Bad produce can be grown in soil or hydroponically, all it takes is unbalanced nutrients and/or not enough of them.

nice application

By mizzrubble on May 30th, 2010 at 1:20 am

looks all like fake plastic plants. haha. soil not hydro is what is truly green. these systems require to much water and chemical nutes. electric pumps temp control. just plant some seeds in the dirt man. and then eat the tasty fruits of your labor. have you ever tasted a hydro strawberry. it tastes like h20.

LOL , leopluridean I work for a company that drills water wells for homes, pvc is the only material used by any well driller I know for the casing of the well! Big 12″ irrigation wells are the only application of steel casing I know of these days. Check it out!!

Wow, it’s like the Jetsons’ garden!

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 2:49 am

Yes, there is no proof of any leaching. After all, like I said below, hundreds of miles of PVC piping bring your drinking and bathing water to your house.

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 3:03 am

We don’t do anything special. We have our greenhouse open a lot and so bugs find their way in, plus we have a fan on that blows the blossoms around. Tomatoes don’t grow in this system, (but do in our other video, self-watering container garden) And for those you just shake the vine. Root crops, and greens need no pollination.

By leopluridean on May 30th, 2010 at 3:13 am

Not necessarily true or false. Some of us have wells and don’t rely on city water.

@Espeon1962 use a feather. That is what Mendel used.

What have you been smoking? The only reason PVC is used over metal or clay is it’s durability. Copper in your house does have some antimicrobial abilities but in todays water plants it’s not needed. The romans used silver coins in their baths to help do the same thing…What do you thing colodial silver is? Silver suspended in water. Silver and copper kill viruses by not allowing the absorbtion of oxygen in the DNA.
PVC is safe and has been for years!

By datzfast on May 30th, 2010 at 5:20 am

funny you should say that because befor the water gets to you CPVC and PEX it spent days getting there in PVC asshole.

By elitesoldier55 on May 30th, 2010 at 5:28 am

If its a small operation you can using a artificial pollination using a cotton ball. Larger scale operations can use fans to blow the pollination around. I’ve even seen a startup that is going to use robotics to pollinate.

By Espeon1962 on May 30th, 2010 at 6:26 am

Question for you. For growing strawberries, and perhaps other small root plants (there are many that could be grown in this system) – how are you dealing with pollenation if indoors?

By silverpizza100 on May 30th, 2010 at 7:12 am

DO YOU HAVE ANY PROOF THAT pvc LEACHES ANY CHEMICALS IN HARMFUL AMOUNTS? SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF BS IF YOU ASK ME.

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 7:59 am

Yes, strawberries, flowers, and lettuce grow best in these systems because of their small root systems. For larger rooted plants we have barrel garden video that will be released shortly, and our container garden system which is already released works well for all the larger rooted plants.

hes growing flowers vertically, hydroponically, but still flowers.

From Wikipedia “In the United States and Canada, PVC pipes account for the largest majority of pipe materials used in buried municipal applications for DRINKING WATER distribution and wastewater mains.”

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 9:36 am

Sorry, but I’ve plumbed many houses and I know that the public water company runs 2″ PVC pipe to carry all the water to houses in this area. The CPVC stands for “Chlorinated Poly-Vinyl-Chloride” and so if CPVC is acceptable, so is PVC.

The only difference being that CPVC handles heat better and so it is used for hot water. Type in “PVC” and “potable water” into Google and you’ll see it is approved for potable water everywhere.

By copperwrap on May 30th, 2010 at 9:49 am

@HowToDrillAWell
PVC is used for drain, waste and vent not for potable water. The plastic line used for potable water is CPVC and PEX tubing. PVC does leach chloride into the water. Hence the abbreviation PolyVinyl chloride (over 57% chloride). It is also bad for the environment having the highest density of hydrocarbon polymers than other plastics. Sorry to burst your bubble.

By the way, look at my videos and you will see that I am really into hydroponics now.
I have expanded a bit since I bought these plans! Once you get hooked, you will never be the same!
I know it is the best way to grow food. Especially in the winter up here in the great white north.

I bought these plans a year or two back. Great plans that are easy to follow. Every step in detail. I use one of these systems outside in the summer with a solar powered pond pump. Costs zero run except for nutes and seeds. The best thing is that the lettuce is really clean and delicious!
These plans gave me ideas and knowledge for other systems of my own design. Well worth the price. Thank you HowToDrillAWell.

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 11:59 am

Neither, it is a constant flow system. A pump runs water past the plants at all times. Some customers have set it up on a timer to run every fifteen minutes, and that works fine too.

By useopenstupid on May 30th, 2010 at 12:22 pm

which method does this employ? is it ebb & flow or aeroponic / fogger?? thanks

By HowToDrillAWell on May 30th, 2010 at 12:53 pm

Just about every water company in every city in every country in the world runs water through PVC pipe. Miles, perhaps hundreds of miles, of PVC pipe separate you from your water supply. Many homes run all their water through PVC lines. So if it’s poison… you’re bathing, washing your clothes and probably drinking hundreds of times more of it than could possibly be absorbed through the plant.

By DominickBlack on May 30th, 2010 at 1:30 pm

PCV is poison. Poison is getting into your food via it I assure you.
