Dutch Bucket (Hydro Bucket)

Dutch Bucket (Hydro Bucket)

This bucket is designed for growing systems using loose media such as clay pellets (Hydroton), GRODAN Grow-Cubes, or coco. You can build a re-circulating 6 bucket system for less than US $150, all parts included. It takes max 1 hour to build. Please ask your local store for details.

The bucket has a very effective internal discharge system. The bottom part of the bucket is designed to create a water buffer. With the installation of 2 elbows connected to the drain, outlet siphoning is created.

The drainage is collected in a central drainpipe avoiding stagnating irrigation water in the Hydro Bucket. It is not recommended to use the buckets without the two elbows.
