For Those who dare! This is a DIY parts kit for our 4 plant Mini 8 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 - 8 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 :)

    4 plant 8 gallon DIY kit review

    Posted by Sam Morrison on Aug 17th 2021

    Between this kit, and Gary's instructions on YouTube, I was able to put this together with very little trouble. I would highly suggest taking his advice and get a practice bucket, because hole saws can be tricky, even though he makes it look super easy. Definitely will be getting a 6 bucket system from him in the future, although I will most likely pay for at least the lids to get drilled next time though. XD Some things are simply worth the investment.

    This system is awesome! It went together smoothly with no leaks! You can NOT buy these part separately and build a system for any less than what they are selling theirs for and these are the BEST parts available to build with, NO LEAKS!!!! FYI I have no affiliation with this company. I did bombard Gary the owner with questions through email and he took the time to respond to everyone of them. I highly recommend this company for customer service and quality of merchandise.
