Rush RDWC Hydroponic System
RUSH RDWC HYDROPONICS SYSTEM
Rush, the new hydroponic system developed by Nutriculture is a Recirculating Deep Water Culture (RDWC) that catapults indoor growing with water to the very next level, by allowing up to 34 circulations of oxygen and nutrient rich solution per hour to be exposed to the roots zone of your plants as its travels through 63mm (2 1/2") piping.
The Rush RWDC system uses 6.5 litre mesh pots, these sit in individual reservoir tanks which are just 38cm in height making the entire system low. These tanks also have their own individual air stone slotted neatly and securely into the base, the air stone then bubbles gently to release oxygen, which when combined with the available solution, provides an oxygen and nutrient rich feed that circulates around the plants roots.
Deep Water Culture (DWC) is already a proven method of growing hydroponically, but with the addition of the nutrient and oxygen rich solution recirculating around the system, which as stated, can be up to 34 times per hour, the results are staggering.
The RDWC method requires small amounts of grow media, while allowing your plants to feed not only as much as they require, but also as and when they need it, therefore preventing both over and under watering, but also pushing your favourite fruits and flowers to excel in terms of not only health and size but also final yields.
When running the Rush RDWC system, it's advised that the pump is left running 24/7, meaning no timer is required, this allows the all-important roots to have access to the oxygen-rich nutrient solution at all times. The temperature of the solution should be kept within 18-21C, a chiller can also be rigged up to the Rush RDWC system to help maintain these levels.
The Rush RDWC system comes with everything you need to be up and running in no time.
THE SYSTEM INCLUDES:
- 6.5-litre net pots + individual reservoir tanks
- Airstone for each reservoir tank
- Adjustable float valve control unit to maintain nutrient levels
- 63mm (2 1/2 “) flexible pipe to connect the tanks and control unit
