Hydroponics farm is growing plants without soil, in this video I am showing you step by step how to make DIY homemade Hydroponics Grow Kit Planting Sites Garden Plant System Vegetable Tool ,I’m showing easy design and how to start hydroponics garden. and how to mix the nutrients fertilizer and how to choose water pump,
here is the steps ;
Hello and welcome to
DIY & Garden
Today I’m going to show you How to build an inexpensive, space-saving Hydroponic system
In this video you will learn How to start a Hydroponic garden
From building the system to prepare the nutrient solutions, and How to choose the right water pump
Let’s get started
Note: for this system, I am using UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride).
Start with connecting the sockets to the pipes
You don’t have to use glue, instead insert the sockets fully inside
Use a hammer to get push them fully inside/ A few knocks with a hammer will do the job.
Using the drill, male holes on top of the pipe
The distance between one hole and another is 20 cm
And 10 cm from the end of the pipe to the first 2 holes
drill all the pipe,
the size of the holes is 55 mm
next connect the reducers to the pipes, except one side of any tube
Insert it well to avoid leakage
Now connect to the End cap to the socket (the one we left it) , you need 10 cm of 4” PVC pipe to join them
that will be the first pipe to receive water from the reservoir (the inlet)
you need (l0 cm of 4” PVC pipe)
to join the End Cap with the socket
Now make a small hole on the top (the inlet)
Now we finish the grow pipes/ well ! we’re done with the grow tubes
8 Pcs 4” S/steel U pipe clip
16 pcs 6 mm PVC WALL-PLUG
16 PCS TAPPING SCREW
8 PCS 4’’ S/STEEL U PIPE CLIP
I highly recommend to use the S/steel clip, don’t use the PVC U clip, easy to tear and break
8 mm drill bit Safety Equipment Work Gloves Eye protection
I will fix this system on the wall in my backyard
You choose the place that suits you, balcony, porch, sidewall depends on your space Measure 4.5 feet from the ground and put a mark
Screw one side of the U clip
Now place the first grow pipe (with the inlet)
Using the level ruler make little slope
Repeat the same process, fix the other side of the tube
Measure and cut 3 pieces of 55 mm PVC pipe each 1 ft.
And cut another 7 pieces each 10 cm
After that connect the 55 mm ELBOW, then followed by the 1 ft. long pipe
In the Same way complete the installation of the other tubes
If you have someone to help you, will be better
If you are doing the work alone, try to find something to support the pipes
Now the system is ready to use.
Use tap water to test the system and wash it off
Make sure that the water is flowing well into the pipes and there are no leaks Et Voila our system is done and ready to use
How to prepare hydroponic solutions
Fill your reservoir with tap water
Add the plants nutrition Add a few drops of pH down
most hydroponic gardeners use liquid or dry fertilizers
Liquid fertilizers are often easier to use because they are easy to measure and don’t require much mixing
Slowly adjust the pH until the meter readings are within the target range
Any pH up and pH down products should always be handled with caution (Avoid skin contact)
Stir the reservoir by hand or use a pump to circulate the nutrient solution to disperse the concentrated fertilizer after each addition
Measure the pH after reaching the target EC.
Add fertilizer in small increments to avoid over fertilizing.
Check the EC after adding fertilizer and continue adding small amounts of fertilizer until the target EC is reached
My target is between 1.5-2.0
Water pump specification:
Max flow Rate: 2500 L/H
Max lift Height: 2.5 M
Outlet: 16mm / 19mm
Size in mm (LWH) (11075120)
Place the suction cups help keep it in place, so you can stick on
This pump coming with 2 outlet 16mm/19mm
I’m not going to use them
I’m going to replace it with 20 mm PVC Connector
I recommend a pump with the outlet on top, easy for you to connect it to the pipes
It needs some adjustment
An Adjustable knob to control the water flow rate, so you can get just the amount of water pressure you want. Place Place the pump and Stick the suction cups With 20 mm PVC pipe connect the pump to the tubes.
I have 30 years of experience and i started this website to see if i could try and share my knowledge to help you.
With a degree a Horticulture BSc (Hons)
I have worked as a horticulture specialist lead gardener, garden landscaper, and of course i am a hobby gardener at home in my own garden.
Please if you have any questions leave them on the article and i will get back to you personally.
