For Those who dare! This is a DIY parts kit for our 8 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:
9 - 8 Gallon Buckets
9 - Plain Bucket lids
8 - 8 Inch Heavy Duty Gropro Net Baskets
18 - 3" Bulkheads
1 - Heavy duty waterfall pump eco 1056
8 - 3/4 Inch Active Aqua Bulkheads
7 - 3/4 inch Tee connector
2 - 3/4 inch elbow fittings
20 feet of 3/4 Inch Active Aqua Vinyl Tubing
1 - 8 output Air Pump
8 - Active Aqua 2x2 Airstones
1 - 100 foot roll of green air tubing
1 - Drainage pump with bottom draw adaptor 
10 feet of 1/2 inch drain hose
1 - Sideways pump hookup (1x each: 1" bulkhead, 1" elbow, 1' of 1" tubing)
1 - Water Level Kit with blue sight hose and 1/2 inch bulkhead w/elbow and Clip
3 hose clamps for pump area.

Pre-Drilled Lids:
We can pre-drill the hole for the net basket for you for an additional fee. This will result in your plant-site lids coming with a ~8" hole that will accept the net basket. You will still be responsible for installing and securing the net basket.


- 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 :)

    Great System But Need To Be Aware Of A Couple DIY Items

    Posted by LR on Oct 21st 2021

    Great system and I am very happy with it. Gary answered a bunch of questions I had while I was researching different sites that were selling similar systems. That along with Gary's videos made me feel comfortable buying from PA Hydroponics. I knew I had help if I needed it. If you make the decision to go the DIY route then there are several things you should be aware of. If you change any of the dimensions of the system it is important to know that it can effect how each piece matches up. For example, I shortened the length of the white PVC pipes between the growing containers. As a result there was not enough space for the recirculating water tees that go between the containers. I was able to make it work by shortening the barbs and using hose clamps but it took some extra time. Also, I ended up having to buy a hole saw for the 3" holes because I incorrectly thought I had one. This again took some time and was an additional expense. Drilling the holes was not a big deal but it did take me longer than I expected. I did have a defective pump but Gary got a replacement out the door to me the same day I let them know. I was extremely impressed with that level of customer service. I will be recommending PA Hydroponics to all of my friends that grow.
