    Default Coco 4 Pot Dripper System - Run To Waste

    Hello everyone. As I promised here is the thread of how I made my Dripper system for coco.
    It is quite simple as long as you order the right things and have them in hand. All you need after that is a few cable ties and pair of scissors.
    Here is the shopping list(Massive Thanks to Samwise Gamgee for the shoppings list):
    1. Water butt - I am using 80L at the moment.
    2. Micro-Jet MC 450 Oxy Pump
    3. Iceline pipe -13mm
    4. Dripper Line 3mm
    5. Double Barbed Elbow 13mm
    6. Double Barbed T 13mm
    7. Flow Valve Gate 13mm
    8. Dripper fittings 4 way
    9. Drippers (blue)
    10. Air Pump
    11. Timer









    So all I did is grabbed a pair of scissors and started. Placed my water tank on the side of my tent and measured at what height I want my line to run. Then made a hole in my tent, small enough only to fit the Iceline 13mm Flexi-Pipe(Picture 11).Placed my Water pump(Picture 12) in the near end of the water butt and cut the desired length of Iceline Flexi-Pipe I needed. Attached the pipe and the pump together and fitted the Double Barbed Elbow 13mm(Picture 9) on the top end. Then attached what's left from the Iceline and put it through the whole of the tent.



    Made another whole from the opposite side of the tent at the same height so I can attach the Iceline and stay leveled.



    I will be using 2 Drippers per pot so I will use 2 x 4 - Way Dripper Fittings(Picture 14). Decided which will be the best position for them and cut the Iceline on that place simply adding the Dripper Fittings in between the running Iceline as you can see on the photos. After the last Fitting I added Inline Flow Control Tap(Picture 10).

    All you need to do is then cut 8 same length Dripper Line(PIcture 15) pieces and attach one end to the 4 Way dripper fittings and the other end to the Flood Drippers(Picture 3). That's it! Job done! All you need to do now is measure how much water is going through your drippers and set the timer for how long you want your system to be running every day! I will be most likely running my for 15 minutes every day 1 Hr after the lights are on and that should give me plenty of runoff that will be collected in my trays under the pots. I am getting rid of my runnoff every 4 days when I refill my water butt. Ah, and don't forget to put airpump in the water tank to mix your feed 1 hours prior feeding!














    Hope that helps guys!

    Thank you thank you thank you.

    Very well executed, going to build same setup myself, torn between the rings or the spikes.

    Do the spikes give an even spread of feed, as in does it soak the whole pot?

    I was thinking between the rings and the spikes mate, but Samwise advised me it's very difficult, almost impossible to take the plants out or clean the rings. I went for the spikes. They are spreading the water quite nice mate..so 2 on each pot I think will be good..you can always add more if you want.

    Would distribution be more even with equal splits for the drippers? I'd assume the furthest pots along the line would get less being after the 2 pots nearest the res?

    Also be using this either way!

    Parts locations would be cool please lol

    Last night I put 4 1.5L jars in the tent and placed 2 drippers in each jar. For 2 minutes I had all 4 jars equally full of water So it works perfect!

    The other end is tied for one of the rafters mate just to keep the line in straight position. You can see the valve after the black 4 way drippers is closed so the water doesn't flow any further than that. The T piece I never used but it's worth having it for a few pennies instead of running around thinking what to use if you need it

    Buls I remeber seeing another one of these set up. There was a extra line at the end that run back to the res to stop it emptying the whole res in the tent due to the syphon effect. Have you allowed for that or is it not needed.

    I defo going to set this up mate as looks pukka.

    Siphoning is really pronounced if your reservoir is above the plants. I had a 4mm elbow in my delivery tube that emptied the lines after the pump stopped. Something to watch for though
    Too weird to live, too rare to die
