Hi josh I have a question for the 1 pot 100 pot system... Can I do row of 3 with 16 pot on each row with the length of 21ft instead of 6 rows with 10 pot shown on the autopot catalog will the water reach that far?? Should I be concern the rear ones won't get as much as the front ones near the flexi tank? Thx - Posted by Ken

Hi Ken, The layout on our web page is a suggestion, you can lay the system out how you like really. We have commercial grows where the tanks are a similar distance away from the trays without any issues. Thanks, Josh

im noticing a film build up on top of the water in the auto pot tray. is this normal. im using rx green nutrients grow part a and b and ph up to 5.5 - Posted by Clifton

Hi Clifton, Many thanks for your enquiry, it is usual to see some sort of film on the surface of the water when using a mineral nutrient. This should have no detrimental effect on plant growth. If you start to see crystallisation of nutrient salts on the valve, pots or trays, then we recommend running a line cleaning product or switching to a different brand of nutrient. Please download the advanced potting up guide from the homepage for more information. Hope this helps.

Hi Josh I was referred to this site for irrigating my VegTrug elevated garden. It is 70" Lx 30" W. I am a little confused as to the system I would use. I am thinking the Spider but am also confused as the needed accessories to connect to a watering vessel. I was going to do drip irrigation but it was not recommended for the VegTrug.Any assistance would be wonderful. Thank you Lynne - Posted by Lynne MacPherson
