EDIT: What size pots are those in post #6? 6" square pots?
UPDATE: Found them, Superior Growers just started to carry them. I have a local Superior Growers shop about 25 miles away that I frequent to for specialty items. Never ordered online, but they are pretty good.

does a constant drip in only one spot in the pot not effect it negativley over overall watering?
It doesn't seem to with coco. I'm running it with 100% coco right now and the plants are so happy. (I am too) I can go and spend time enjoying my plants rather then mixing solutions up every day.

So how do you handle salt buildup in your medium? Are you dripping enough for some constant run off? If so, how are you handling your run off. I am really interested to see your process. Currently, with hand watering, it is some what difficult. I have a bad shoulder and lugging around these 5 gal plants weighing 50lbs wet is painful. Since I run off 10-20% a normal saucer just won't do, and even with a saucer, the medium would just wick it up over time. Some would evaporate of course.
i dont deal w/ salt buildup in my medium. i use house and gardens Drip Clean. you only use .4ml per gal and it works wonders. you water w/ it all the way through veg and flower and u shouldnt have to worry about salts. these things are a bit different than other drip systems. that cone that you put in your medium w/ the dial on top..... that gauges whether the medium needs more drip...or less drip. it controls it by itself. ok.... say if you were to buy these blumats, you need to water your medium very well. fill the cones w/ water and submerge them in water for about an hour. once you hook everything up, insert your cones into the medium, you set it w/ that dial to where it just BARELY drips. when the medium starts to dry out, that little dripper will open up to allow it to drip more and saturate the medium. the wetter the medium gets.......the less it will drip. that little brown drip tube is specially made. its some type of surgical tubing. but its the ONLY kind you can use w/ this system. thats what makes it able to "clamp" itself off if the medium is watered enough. you can actually set the drip rate to whatever you want really. mine personally is set to drip....drip.....drip.....drip instead of drip................drip..............drip if that makes any sense lol. bring on any ?'s you guys have. ill try my best to help as much as i can
