Hi uk420rs! It's been some time I was thinking to switch to Aeroponics. So after a research I decided to build a system for 4 large plants for scrog. As I understand it, to get a 20-50 micron droplets I must have following: 1. Nutrients tank 2. High pressure water pump 3. Accumulator tank (expansion vessel) 4. Pressure switch (for pump) 5. Solenoid valve and timer for it 6. Anti-drip misting nozzles (0.3-0.4mm orifice) 7. Root chambers That's most of it covered.... Obviously there loads of tubing, connection fittings, filter, dreinage and all sorts of little things that also cost money So far I purchased : Aquatec 8800 (24v 125psi pump), Small (0.7L) expansion vessel, Aquatec pressure switch 100psi, 24v solenoid valve, Timer ON time 0.5-10sec. OFF time 0.5-45min. Anti-drip misting nozzles (still ain't delivered from China), 100mesh filter for aquariums, Some 3/8 tubing and fittings and some 1/4 too. Main goal of building this system is to get white fluffy roots that in theory better than any other type I also would do my best to achieve a near silent operation of the things trying to squeeze noisy parts into a concrete chamber filled with acoustic material.... My plan is to use 2 big black storage boxes (84L each) as a root chambers accomodating 2 plants each. Probably will install 2 misters for a box and see how they work and amount of the nutrient solution I'm going through to decide on size of nutrient tank. Will try and post some build pictures as I progress I'm sure there is few knowledgeable people on here who can guide me away from making beginners mistakes. Any advice and suggestions are appreciated! Cheers!
