Ebb & Gro - 12 Grow Site System w/55 Gallon Reservoir
The Ebb & Gro (from 12 to 48 plants) is the most versatile ebb & flow system on the market. It is a simple system that uses 2 pumps and gravity to flood and drain the planters about 3 to 4 times per day. The fill drain cycles are controlled by the controller unit (the square black box) which controls the feeding schedule set on the built-in timer.
You may connect all of the grow pots to the controller unit then set the timer to fill and drain the pots about 3 or 4 times a day. All necessary tubing and fittings are included with the system. When the fill and drain cycle that you set triggers, it turns on the pump in the large reservoir (the 55 gallon black drum), and starts filling the controller unit. Since the grow pots are all plumbed to the controller unit, the water in the entire system starts to level off with the controller unit. When the pots are full, and your drain cycle starts, the pump in the controller unit pumps all of the water back into the reservoir. When the level of the water in the controller unit goes down, all of the grow pots levels go down also. Then the controller unit waits for the next fill and drain cycle a few hours later.
Each grow pot is 2 gallons, can be filled with Sure to Grow Inserts or grow rocks, and consists of 2 pots nested inside each other. The inner pot has many holes in the bottom to allow the water to enter the grow media and the root zone allowing you to pick up the inner pot and move the plants from one site to another as well as providing even plant growth at the edges of your garden, where the plants don’t get as much light.
Because your plants have 2 gallons of space in which to have root growth, the size of your plants is not an issue. If they get larger than you anticipated, you can space the grow pots further apart. The closest the plants can be together is 10”, so they can be packed into a small area. Each 6 pot add-on includes all the tubing and fittings needed. Controller units are available separately and include pumps.
