For Those who dare! This is a DIY parts kit for our 4 plant 13 Gallon Fallponic system. It does NOT include any drilled holes or PVC but includes all the other parts. This allows you to customize to your specifications and includes 4 extra feet of 3/4 inch tubing if you need to space them out farther. This is a build at your own risk kit, we are not responsible for any injuries or problems with your drilling etc. We recommend practicing drilling on an extra bucket or piece of cardboard to make sure you have the right size holes and spacing. You should watch our build video for tips and tricks on building this system! Good luck and have fun:) Gary

This Parts Kit Includes:
5 - 13 Gallon Buckets
5 - Plain Bucket lids
4 - 8 Inch Heavy Duty Gropro Net Baskets
10 - 3" Bulkheads
1 - Active Aqua 400 waterfall pump
5 - 3/4 Inch Active Aqua Bulkheads
3 - 3/4 inch Tee connector
3 - 3/4 inch elbow fittings
10 feet of 3/4 Inch Active Aqua Vinyl Tubing
1 - 4 Output Active aqua Air Pump
4 - Active Aqua 2x2 Airstones
4 - 10 Feet sections of green air tubing
1 - 250 Gallon Per Hour Bottom Draw drainage pump
10 feet of 1/2 inch drain hose
1 - Water Level Kit with blue sight hose and 1/2 inch bulkhead w/elbow and Clip
10x hose clamps

- New 3/4 bulkheads seal much better, put the rubber gasket on inside.
- Use hot water for the soft tubing! This expands the tubing which helps it go on better and also helps it seal better on barbed fittings.
- Lean the hump piece over as much as your tent hole will allow for smoother operation.
- IMPORTANT! When you fill the system, fill it to the bottom of the hump inside and out, then turn on waterfall (this will burp out the air in the hump piece) 
- Then top off to your desired level. It will always have to be above the hump to run properly and during early vegetative growth you will have to fill it up high      so it touches your starter. 
- I have never used hose clamps on any of our systems and have had minimal problems, some people do add hose clamps to our systems that is up to you.
- Dont snap shut the plant root access flaps! They are very hard to reopen!
- If your flaps start to loosen at the joint you can put on a strip of Gorilla tape or electrical tape to strengthen it up.
- Please watch our videos on Fallponics for assembly :) Thanks. And dont forget to tag us! #FALLPONICS - Gary :)

    Perfect for getting into RDWC

    Posted by Matt on Nov 20th 2023

    I wanted to DIY but was a little overwhelmed at first trying to source everything I would need until I ran across a video on YouTube by PA Hydroponics, after watching the set up video and seeing the price of the DIY system they offer I decided to make the purchase. I have been nothing but happy with it so far! I’m only about a week into veg but I ran the system for about a week before putting the plants in and have noticed zero leaks and with the pump outside the reservoir I haven’t needed to get a water chiller. I couldn’t be happier!

    13gal system

    Posted by Csmith on May 20th 2022

    System was quick to setup for me. Have had it up and running and approaching week 2 veg. So far love the rdwc system compared to dwc although getting great results with both. The recirculation makes managing ppm and ph a bit less of a headache though with this volume of water I am using a bit more nutrients and such but extremely satisfied and highly recommend this system...

    DIY 4-Plant system

    Posted by charles smith on May 4th 2022

    While drilling was a PITA I still had the system up and running in less than 2 hours. The only slight drip(leak) I had was on the 3 inch elbow section where I guess I did not prime/cement enough, easily fixed. Moved from DWC to RDWC and love it! Circulating makes nut/PH control less of a PITA than my DWC system.

    Fallponic 13 gallon diy kit

    Posted by Rob on Sep 23rd 2020

    Awesome product, awesome customer service. With a little elbow grease and some time you can save yourself a significant amount of cash. Also Gary will leave stuff out and refund you the difference or replace with something of equal value if u ask nicely. In my case I didn't need the drain pump or air pump. I asked him to remove and he took care of me. Shipping was fast. When I called I actually spoke to the man , the legend, Gary himself answered the phone. All in all great experience. I will definitely order from here again. Thank you PA hydroponics
