Quick DWC air pump Q

Single plant in a single bucket (10 litres of nutes).


Is a 3.2 litre/minute air pump too little or just right ? (Can you have too much ?)


Just sorting out some cupboards :)


Cheers all :yep:

That doesn't sound very powerful tbh, might not be up to the job but give it a try. :)   I have a hailea ACO-300a (240l per minute) running 10 x 10l pots, they were all turned down a bit though. You can fit inline aquarium valves bought from any petshop to turn the airflow down, the non-return valves are also quite handy too, stops water going back into the pump if you have a power cut. If you don't have a non-return valve fitted, always keep the pump above the waterline to stop syphon from occurring if pump fails. :)    You could also floom with a small water pump. :)  


Edited to add - You're talking pennies for those plastic valves and bits btw, just look in an aquarium shop.


Edited again, just checked an it's the 240l model. lol Sorry

as long as you have movement of the surface water it will do, but id be looking for something a bit more powerfull, in an ideal world.

But if its all you have it will still produce bud,
