Aeroponic High Pressure H20 pump and spray nozzles

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by growweednow, May 10, 2010.

  1. Hi all! I'm setting up an Aeroponics system and need water pump and nozzle recommendations.:confused:


    16 8'x8" pvc piping

    I want to run high pressure spray nozzles, nothing that will damage roots but can atomize very small nutrient h20 particles. What should I choose?

    Also, what pump should I use? Any help would be much appreciated!
  2. I just got the aquatec 8800 off ebay that boost my pressure to 120 psi

    A 150 psi would be the least amount needed for a fog like spray with steinen

    nozzles of which I have 10. For a regular misting system for cuttings.

    Believe it or not I actually grow nursery plants but I am having a hard time

    finding info myself on spray nozzles. My problem with the nozzles I have now

    especially since I want to now start aeroponics is having the nozzles drip.

    Tomatoes and Peppers (cost doesn't make sense but it is a hobby)

    Never realized how much nutrients were until I walk into a local grow shop.

    Major concerns with clogging. So I bought expensive stuff. Need help

    finding cheaper nutrients that won't clog fine nozzles. This isn't a "cash

    crop" Steinen sell drip free nozzles but only in bags of a 100 at $7 or $8

    apiece. I can never understand manufactures who won't sell you there

    product???? But Steinen from my experience are the best nozzles a round.

    NASA says you need 5-50 micron spray to be effective. So you need

    good nozzles(capable of high pressures) and lots of PSI. I like these pumps

    but the cost probably to much.

    Misting Pumps USA - A perfect mechanism

    Still working this all out myself I used this repeat cycle timer for my cuttings

    Artisan - 4600 Repeat Cycle Timer

    Have it set to turn on for 1 sec. every min.

    I think it might also work well for real aeroponics not the "bath" aeroponics.

    The air is as important as the spray nutrients.

    Hope this helps
