This is a self-build kit for 4 plants in a recirculating deep water culture system. This system is NOT DRILLED & DOES NOT COME WITH CLAY BALLS. This is the same system featured in our YouTube video but with 4 plant's instead of 2. Assembled system will fit in a 3'x3' or 4'x4' (or larger) tent/area.
*Please watch our video below before ordering as this system DOES NOT come with instructions!
This system includes 4-5 gallon buckets with 6" bucket baskets and one 5 gallon reservoir bucket. The whole system is connected with 1" soft tubing, and recirculates with a submersible 75 gallon per hour water pump. Each plant is aerated with its own air stone from the 4-output air pump that is also included.
This system also includes our water level indicator kit that is in our video. (PLEASE SEE VIDEO LINKS)

This setup rocks for the price and everything is made simple!
Fantastic design, durable and economical it sets up in minutes, very well thought out design, I can’t wait to see the results. Thank you
Easy to put together, be patient and follow direction in regards to leaks with bulk heads and you will have know problem. I am 3 quarters of the way though my first grow and it has worked so much better than my soil set up. Very thankful for all the video's
I got it pre drilled, went together perfect. If need be I would buy again.
5 Bucket RDWC (drilled). This product rocks! I'm very happy I got it drilled. Awesome product, workmanship, and high quality parts. I'd definitely but it again, or perhaps a larger one. I have zero negative comments. And, it arrived super fast too. Super Great bang for the buck. Thanks Gary!!
great starter kit... just as good as these expensive ones floating around
