      Read the top post again..... I didn't buy it - I am warning other members that this system is TERRIBLE considering how much it costs - I've built better for £100 or less. 

      You say don't moan - the whole point of this thread is to highlight a major issue in the hydroponics industry which is - robbing people blind for shit products. 

      You agree you won't buy more of it, and agree home made is better, so what is your point? 


      I have a problem with alien hydro as they sell an over specced piece of shit and whack a fucking retarded margin on top - PURE GREED. 

      Doobie01 nailed it - 
        with growing being a male dominated area thats why i think the big 4" pipes are on it as most think bigger is better really what sized pump would you need to utilise the full flow output from 4" holes when my full street is fed from a 6" main  
      4" pipework is just an attempt to force you to buy any parts you need from them, while providing a USELESS amount of deadspace in the form of the massive pipes with slow flow rate - just more space for water to heat up as it travels around the system - fucking poor design. 

      I can run a 300L chiller on a 500L system that I build myself and the water easily maintains 19ºC - in the alien it averaged 21ºC and I only had 200-250L in there. fucking rubbish. 

      50mm pipework + koi supplies bulkheads + boxes from hardware store + air pump = far superior. 

      I challenge Alien hydroponics to hire an impartial tester to run a home made system versus one of theirs - it'd be fucking hilarious.

      You can start in final pot but I would just wait to see a bit of root at bottom of the pot

      What a fine way to start a sunday @Smokebelch  a coffee and a j, and some smashing pics. Better than a sunday paper. Interesting to see the CCs next to the pc to get perspective

      So strange did you have any green slime i know my mate had a fully set die and had weird like algae green slime so a full bleach down and retry and 100% success again how are you taking the cuttings I know mine only fail when it just a left over hack not cut at a node and possible not even cut clean. Just trying to think of all the variables
