This is my pipe dream. It's constructed from three 10 foot sections of PVC pipe. Each pipe is cut in half to 60 inches. The pipes have ten 7/8 inch holes for plants. The wooden frame has a 2X4 on one and a 2X6 on the other for a 1 1/2 inch slope. The pipes are screwed to the frame with stainless steel screws using a long screwdriver through a plant hole on each end. It uses 1/2 inch irrigation tubing and 1/4 inch drip lines. I use 2 drip lines per pipe in case one plugs up. The pump is a little giant pump and there is an air stone bubbler in the tank. The tank is a sweater box with 12 gallons of solution. My nutrient is 1 tsp miracle grow, 1/4 tsp calcium nitrate, and 1/4 epsom salts per gallon. The ph stays about 6.5 with little correction needed. Most of the plants are romaine lettuce bought from Lowes. I washed off the dirt and inserted them in. The pump runs 24/7 and delivers about 1.5 liter per minute per tube. The plants are growing like crazy.
