    Default Finalising new room set up / help advise needed

    Hi Lads, not sure if this will work... so I'm looking for some input. First up, this idea has come about due to some free materials landing at my feet. So - on a job I'm working at, there are 4meter lengths of 8 inch ( yes 200mm ) piping ready to be skipped. So this got me thinking that maybe I can use them in a new automated system for my grow room. I was thinking that I could suspend the pipe a few foot off theground with a small incline, at the lowest point place a nutrient tank, from tank pump feed to one end of the pipe (highest point ) let it feed down the pipe and back into tank. cut 4inch net pots in a row evenly spaced, lay rockwool slaps on inside for growing medium....recirulating system, not sure if I could just set pump to run every few hours or consistently?
    Or maybe run to waste will work better for my needs. I can't really have a pump running all night long.
    As you can tell, it's a idea that needs work, any thoughts on how to make this a workable idea are welcome

    I'v pics of what I have and an idea of what I can do... pics coming up

    I've now got this piping and a low profile tank so the system can stay as low to the ground as poss.

    What are people's thoughts of rockwool slabs inside this piping and run to waste ?

    Nft won't work if it has to recirculate consistently due to the pumps running during the night time / ph ec fluctuations.
