With all of this considered, it's no surprise we consider this one of the Best Hydroponic Systems in the industry, especially for beginners or those growing on a budget. Let's get into some of the reasons you should grow with this system.
Why Grow In The Active Aqua Root Spa 5 Gallon 8 Bucket System?
This 8 site, 5 gallon bucket system from Active Aqua is so simple, with minimal moving parts. This makes it easy to use, and decreases the likelihood of something breaking on it. But, it is still able to grow huge plants very efficiently. After using this system, you'll understand why so many growers swear by it!
While Hydroponics isn't as easy and straightforward as traditional soil growing, it's actually made really simple in the Active Aqua Root Spa 5 Gallon 8 Bucket System. It is far more forgiving than other systems, and is an awesome way to get started.
From a production standpoint, the Active Aqua Root Spa 5 Gal 8 Bucket System does not disappoint. It pumps air directly into the nutrient solution without the need for cumbersome, unreliable air pumps. This is not only the most cost-effective option, it produces some of the biggest, most potent plants possible! Don't take our word for it, check out what one customer had to say after growing a few seasons in this system:
It's easy to tell when your plants are supercharged. You don't need any fancy meter for that, it's visually apparent. Every time you open the door to your garden your plants almost roar at you! The speed of their development is shocking, even over a single day, they are visibly taller, fuller, bigger, and happier. I love it when my garden is cranking like this.

Setting Up The Active Aqua Root Spa 5 Gal 8 Bucket System
Setting up of the 8-site Root Spa system is just like setting up the single-site system. The only difference is in the air pumps. Whereas this one contains a multi-output air pump, the single-bucket Root Spa systems use a single dedicated air pump.

Active Aqua Root Spa 5 Gallon, 8 Bucket Hydroponics System Reviews
- Effective but expensive
I like the system that I bought. It works well, but one could achieve the same result at half the price.
If the buckets were connected at the bottom and a small output submersible pump to move your fertilizer around they would be 5 stars !
- Sweet system for the price
The root spa kicks ass. The only downside is you can't really setup a chiller but for the price its a great hydro system.
