This unit allows you to easily add racks as you expand. It also allows for portability for events, markets, and moving around your grow room.
Focus on being a farmer instead of an engineer.
Eliminate trips to the hardware store.
Spend your time focusing on running your farm, working a day job, or completing other tasks while your plants continually get the care they need.

COMES FULLY ASSEMBLED
Simply set the timers & fill the reservoir with water.
Each flood tray independently, able to be adjusted.
Flexible heavy-duty vinyl tubing resists leaks when bumped during maintenance.
2 screens at each inlet & outlet to catch debris.
All racks on casters for easy moving & maintenance.
This is flexible tubing, even after installation it may sag and twist vs. the straight connection you would see when using a pipe or PVC to plumb in the system.
Because of all of the things that can happen in transit, small leaks in connections can occur. Some clamps may need tightening or drains may require some extra turns. These tasks are all part of the regular maintenance of a flood and drain system.
