Written by Keith | 4 Jul 2014Hi, is there a grow tent which can accommodate an IWS 48 pot system?We would recommend using 2 x Titan 2 Budbox tents for the 48 pot IWS flood system, 24 plants in each tent.

Written by JC | 11 Feb 2013Hi guys I have just put my 48 pot system together which I got from you guys and I wanted to know about draining the system. Should I be draining the system back completely after each feed or just when changing the nutrients?We would recommend completely draining the system back after each feed.
Written by SA | 21 Oct 2012What size tent might you use for the 6 pot system?.The 6 pot IWS Flood System will fit in the XL Budbox tent, which is 1.2m x 1.2m. It is best to locate the reservoir outside the tent. For larger plants, you may want to consider a 1.2m x 2.4m XXL tent.
Written by LC | 2 Sep 2012What size system would you recommend for a 2.4 x 2.4 x 2 tent?? ThanksYou would be able to get a 24 pot IWS system in this tent, It would be preferable to locate the nutrient reservoir outside the tent .
Written by Ian | 9 Aug 2012Hi i have brought 2 iws systems from Growell. Could you give me some advice on flood cycles in veg and flower stages, do the cuttings have to be well established before transplanting them into the system?We would advise that the roots of the plants should be well established before putting them in the system. For young plants in the system, we would advise that you set the system to run for 15 minutes every 3 hours, & once during the lights off period, for more mature plants, we would advise running the system in for 15 minutes every 2 hours, & twice during the lights off period.
Written by nigel | 7 Aug 2012Hi, I will shortly be placing an order for 12 pot IWs flood system, do these systems require reservoir heaters and if so which wattage, also do they require any air infusion pumps? ThanksWe would recommend using the 300W Heavy Duty Nutrient Heater with the 12 pot IWS System. If you wanted to use airstones in the reservoir, we would recommend using the NFT Aeration kit 3, which includes the four outlet budget air pump, with 4 airstones & airline too connect them.
Written by TC | 28 Dec 2011hi do i need to flood it every 2/3 hours even when lights are off? I was told plants don't feed at night.You would only need to run flood cycles with the light on in this system, as the night period will give the roots a chance to rest, this is the case for all flood & drain systems, & dripper systems
Written by gary | 9 Nov 2011Hi, other than changing the solution and checking ph/cf levels, what else do you need to do to maintain the IWS system? Would I have to clean all the individual buckets every week like with oxy pots?We would recommend thoroughly cleaning the entire system between crops, & changing your nutrient solution every week.
