Why Grow In The Active Aqua Grow Flow 12 Site Hydroponics System with 5 Gallon Growth Modules
The main reason this is an excellent hydroponics system is because its budget-friendly, at just over $500. Compare that to other 12 site systems, which easily run over $1,000. This system is super beginner friendly as well, featuring the Active Aqua Grow Flow's easy-to-program controller. You can essentially set the controller and forget it, with peace of mind that it will continue working worry free.
Since the pumps on the Active Aqua Grow Flow 12 Site Hydroponics System with 5 Gallon Growth Modules only pump for a short time each day, the system is very reliable and even more efficient. Simply choose your flood and drain cycles, and the system will take care of the rest!
The Active Aqua Grow Flow 12 Site Hydroponics System with 5 Gallon Growth Modules is also very safe, as it is one of the only units that has fail-safe overflow protection. If the float valve stops operation, LED indicator lights up on the control panel and the system will automatically be shut down. This prevents any damage to your growing area or equipment from spillage.

Active Aqua Grow Flow 12 Site Ebb & Flow Hydroponic System with 5 Gallon Growth Modules Reviews
- Could be better
A few improvements and it would be perfect:
1) minor annoyance but the hoses are very stiff and make assembly difficult. The buckets, lids, pumps, fittings tend to get pushed and pulled out of place.
2) it would be nice if a couple barbed 3/4" 90's and tee's came with it so it could be adapted for different rooms/configurations.
3) it should come with caps/plugs for the control bucket outlets. It has 6 outlets. The instructions say to plug pairs of outlets you aren't using by connecting 2 together with a piece of hose and/or plug unused single outlets by kinking and ziptying a piece of hose on an outlet. The problem is the hose is so stiff, kinking it doesn't create a leakproof seal and connecting 2 together with the hose forces the outlet fittings outward (hose is stiff) causing them to sit in the grommets at nearly a 45 deg. angle. I used 1/2" pvc plugs and short pieces of hose to make plugs. It would be nice to have grommet plugs or barb fitting caps included so that you dont have this problem and get rid of unnecessary hoses sticking out of the side of the bucket that get in the way of things.
My upper float switch was faulty out of the box [shorted inside the switch body] and tech support didn't answer my calls so I just ordered a suitable float switch that would fit in the bracket from mcmaster carr and soldered the wires in.
