Our goal is to find a balance between the dependability of a low pressure system and the minimal use of water from a high pressure system. Maintaining reserviors on a commercial scale can lead to many headaches, so we are designing our systems to be drain to waste.
We are also developing a modular nutrient feeding system that will work in concert with our modular Aeroponic system.
The entire system is being built with longevity in mind and ease of maintence. We are also trying to use as many American manufactured parts as possible.
The one design compononent of our system that sets us apart from everyone else will be our modular lid design. By simply changing out lids you can go from growing your favourite herbs, to your favourite micro-greens. Also, the systems are stackable using the very simple Unistrut brand metal framing system. For micro-greens, you could stack them 3 high in a typical 8' ceiling.
Our root chambers are spun molded from FDA approved food grade high-density polyethylene and at almost 3/8 of an inch thick.. they should last forever!
Anyways, we are still quite a ways from retailing these systems, but we wanted to hopefully gain some exposure by blogging about our prototyping and development progress.
We hope to inspire as well as manybe get inspiration from some of the DIY'er out there as well.
