The aeros is a Deep Water Culture (DWC) system that is also known as a bubbler system. These are very popular hydroponic systems that require very little growing media. However it does require a lot of nutrient/water solution.
The plant is supported in a net pot filled with a growing media such as Clay Pebbles and the roots are submerged in a highly oxygenated nutrient/water solution. The aeros includes an air pump and submersible airstone(s) to provide a large amount of oxygen to the roots of the plant and this results in rapid growth. The bubbles produced by the airstone keep the nutrient/water solution constantly moving and oxgyen rich and so the roots stay healthy.
It is important to monitor the EC and pH levels closely with this system in order to gain optimum results. This is easy-to-do by simply removing the inspection port cover and taking a pH/EC reading. Full instructions are supplied. The aeros I includes a single outlet air pump and a submersible airstone to provide a large amount of oxygen to the roots of the plant resulting in rapid growth.
Dimensions approx: H: 303mm x W: 357mm x D: 353mm
Note: Maximum volume 15L and working volume 12L.
If using a pump with this system - the air pump should be positioned above the water level.
