Check your drippers!
    #620502 - 04/27/12 08:11 PM (4 years, 7 months ago)

I just spent 2 hours in my basement mopping, soaking, and vacuuming up about 35 gallons of water. I've been good about letting my grow do it's thing and now I only check on it 2 or 3 times a day. Well within a period of 4 hours one of my drip lines came unhooked from the dropper and flopped down in my tent, slowly pumping water. which pooled in the tent for awhile, then leaked out onto the plywood floor (thank god electrical crap was on shelving off of floor..), and then out of my grow room into the basement.

so a word to the wise, always check those little bastards! you give them a few tugs and they seem like they'll never come off, then you tug at just the right angle and POP water everywhere......

back to studing for finals fml.

One of the few things I haven't tried indoors plenty of times outdoors but never indoors is drip lines.


Good thing to let people know hopefully it helps somebody. :happyweed:

When it all comes down to it, it was only a marginal pain the ass to clean up, and as long as mold doesn't start to grow (water was loaded with nutes...) Everything will be OK. I think what happened is a fan fell over inside, twisting/pulling the main feel line as it fell and that probably was enough to tug the drip line loose.

I've added more slack, check all connections to make sure they're actually clicked on with some fortitude. and as soon as I'm satisfied that the floors are sufficiently dry, I will move the fans back inside and I'll be sure to secure them better.

just sucks balls is all.
