New grow room thinking of going to hydro ?

Hi guys I'm sat thinking about the grow room am planning for our new house when we move early 2020 it will be a garage build. I'm thinking about going full hydro iv never done hydro but I'm keen to try it as I hear it's so much better then coco ? 

 

What would be the ultimate hydro set up as I'm building this from scratch anything is possible ? 

 

I will be growing all year round so if summers a problem with water temps and root rot I will buy chillers, heaters anything I need

 

only ever grown in coco with good results but sick of getting rid of all the coco after harvest and to be honest I want to see what hydro can do 

 

any help advice on systems, nutrients would be great 

 

 

thanks

Rdwc is unbeatable in my opinion without spending fortunes on fancy equipment. Growth in veg is insane.

@michaeldbc is that used with clay balls or just water ? I'm looking to be using a 10x4 feet scrog screen would 6/8 hydro plants fill the screen quicker then coco ? 

 

I'm going to do some research now what's the best nutrients to use ? 

 

Im currently using canna coco full range would swap to canna Aqua or canna hydro ? 

 

Thanks for your comment

Coco is hydro really but yeah I believe it will be faster in a dwc it's a net pot full of clay and then water underneath. Canna aqua would be the ideal I think

Coco is classed as a 'semi-hydroponic' medium, and can be re-used 2-3 times, see this link on the Canna website for more info ;)
