Dual system hydroponics
    #346486 - 01/12/10 07:18 PM (6 years, 10 months ago)

What is the effectiveness of a dual system hydroponic table?  Some people use a low pressure aero system with DWC.  Or Low Pressure aero and NFT.  With both of those systems it seems to me that once the roots hit ether the DWC portion, or are long enough for the water runoff to become NFT moreso then aero and the first system is then negated.  Is there any proof of an advantage to running dual system other then if one fails; you have backup (Aero/dwc). 

Or would it really work to use Aero/DWC gaining both the lateral root growth from T.A.G. as well as have the constant nutrient uptake and system failure backup of the DWC?

I've tried a dual system that I made some time ago. Now it's good as a backup to aero systems cause if the power goes out aero is pretty venerable to dying if the power is turned on fast or if the roots can reach some water or get sprayed before they die.
The main problem is that the main problem that kills one system also kills the backup system at the same time and it is in most power loss.

P.S. Sorry it took so long to get a answer.:omgawesome:

Its cool.  Im happy to get an answer lol...

So what are your thoughts then on most hybrid Aero/DWC systems as in; once the roots hit the DWC water... it entirely negates the need for the sprayers no?

Basically in my aero design; im not sure if its worth using up the extra possible grow space of putting in a 6-12 inch air/spray zone for the roots; or if a 4-6 inch would be just as good...  Dont know if the roots sitting the extra run off of the small Aero/nft systems helps; or if i could get better yields by having it be as close to true aero as possible...

As long as you put a bubbler in the tank then yeah there will be no need for the sprayers.
