Current Culture 2016 System Upgrades

2016 brought a number of new features to Current Culture Under Current Hydroponic Systems!


It’s hard to believe Current Culture is approaching 10 years of offering the Under Current® RDWC systems to growers around the world. Over the years they've made countless improvements in an effort to provide the best RDWC hydroponic system on the market. Current Culture has invested much time and expense in R&D bringing these newly developed improvements to market and we at Hydrobuilder are certain growers will quickly see the advantages of these changes.


CCH2O Lids in White

All CCH2O lids are now available in bright white ABS material. This upgrade reduces absorption of heat into the nutrient solution, decreasing the cooling load on your chilling system. These new lids are:cch2o-lid

  • Highly Reflective
  • UV Stable
  • 100% Non-translucent (Does not allow light incursion.)
  • Cooler Operating: reducing total BTU being absorbed
  • No Visible Scale Build-up
  • Same Durable ABS Construction


Side-EntryAqua-Pore™ Side Entry Kits

Current Culture recently changed all of the growth modules (8/13 gallon) to include a small hole in the upper lip; this allows the air hose to enter through the side. This upgrade allows growers to remove lids without having to disrupt aeration hose, making plant transitions much more seamless. Instructions have been updated to cover this modification.


Aqua-Pore™ Anchors

Included with all Under Current systems, the Aqua-Pore Anchor replaces the large O-ring in the bulkhead nut. The Aqua-Pore Diffuser slips under the feet of the Aqua-Pore Anchor on both sides of the growth module and is “anchored” from movement or floating. The Aqua-Pore Anchor is available in 2″ and 3″ for all 8/13-gallon systems. **Suction cups will still be included in all Aqua-Pore Diffuser kits.

white-hoseWhite Hose

White 3/4″ Return Hose: All 3/4″ ID hose leading from return manifold to Epicenter is now supplied in white. The lighter material will reduce absorption of heat into the nutrient solution, reducing the load on your chilling system. 100% Non-translucent.

White HDPE 1/4″ Aeration Hose: All 1/4″ ID airline running from chrome splitter to growth module is now supplied in durable, kink resistant High Density Poly Ethylene. Besides being supremely durable and long lasting, HDPE is a recyclable plastic and a more eco-friendly alternative to the FPVC hose previously used. 100% Non-translucent.

White 3/4″ Aeration Hose: All 3/4″ ID hose leading from air pumps to chrome splitters is now supplied in white. The lighter material will reduce absorption of heat into the airline keeping air cooler before entering water. 100% Non-translucent.

Under Current® PRO Lids in Whitepro-lid-4

Any PRO systems or SOLO Pro units ordered with 4 or 6-site lids will now come standard in White. Epicenter lids will remain black for the time being until inventory on hand is exhausted. Current Culture be transitioning all other sizes slowly throughout the year. The new white PRO lid features an Acrylic Korad cap which is UV enhanced to resist fading or discoloring for up to 10-years in high light/greenhouse environments. 100% Non-translucent.

Bulkhead now without O-rings

Please note Current Culture excluded O-rings from all bulkheads sold in Under Current RDWC systems and a-la-carte. The removal of the O-ring now affords an easier installation as it reduces associated friction caused by the O-ring, which lead to occasional sealing issues. The removal of this O-ring allows installers to quickly tighten nuts on bulkheads with little to no need for follow up cinching. The exclusion of the O-ring does nothing to reduce effectiveness of seal. *Note: All sealing of our bulkheads occur outside the growth module with the large flat gasket.
