Flood and Drain Hydroponic Systems

FLOOD & DRAIN SYSTEMS
(Ebb & Flow)

The Flood & Drain tray is a popular hydroponic growing system because it is simple and productive.

Perfect for indoor grow tents.

The process works by regularly flooding the tray with a nutrient solution which then drains completely. This cycle is then repeated multiple times a day depending on your plants requirements.
The tray is populated by your plants growing in loose expanded clay, plastic pots or rockwool cubes.

ADVANTAGES:
The flooding action helps prevent salt build up in the root zone.
Flooding re oxygenates the grow media.
Flooding evenly saturates the root zone with nutrient solution.
Simple- no drippers to block up ever.
