Hydroponic gardening allows you to have control of your fruits, veggies, herbs, and flowers. You can grow them completely inside, so you can garden all year round. Soilless gardening lets you grow your favorites foods in just water. You don’t need a big garden outside, and you don’t have to plant seasonally. When using hydroponic gardening, your favorites are always in season.
Make smartpond® the Heart of Your Hydroponics System
Utilize a pump to circulate the water from the reservoir to the plants. A hydroponics system recirculates water to reduce the amount of water needed to grow plants from traditional gardening methods. Select your pump based on the pumping height needed to move water up to your plants, the amount of water you would like to move, and if you would like a low water shut-off feature or not. See the difference in how healthy and quickly your plants will grow when powered by smartpond®.
Select a pump based on:
- Pumping height needed to move water up to plants
- Amount of water you would like to move
- Low water shut-off preference
Gardening made simple
Not everyone is born with two green thumbs, but hydroponics will make you look like you were. Hydroponics takes out the extra maintenance steps of watering and soil nutrient care. Plants can grow faster using this self-watering method.
Set it and forget it
Adding a pump to your water reservoir on a timer allows you to water once and let the system take care of the rest while conserving more water than traditional gardening.
Occasionally boost the nutrient level by adding supplements into the water, and watch your plants take off!
Type of hydroponics systems
Use a pump, on an outlet timer, to move water to each plant which can drip water back into the water reservoir.
Flood & drain
Use a pump, on an outlet timer, to move water into the upper reservoir. Use an overflow valve to make sure the water does not go higher than a height you determine. Once the pump turns off, all water will return to the lower water reservoir.
Nutrient film technique
Use a pump, on an outlet timer, to move water to the top of a tilted tray of plants where the roots are exposed inside. The base of the tilted tray will return water back into the water reservoir.
Use a pump to circulate water in a reservoir. Allow plant roots to grow and reach the water reservoir for continuous watering.
Use a pump to circulate water in a reservoir. Use a wick-like cord to absorb water from the water reservoir and bring it to each plant for continuous watering.
