How Do Ebb & Flow Table Systems Work?
The Ebb & Flow Hydroponic System is an active recovery type system. This system utilizes a submersible pump in the hydroponic reservoir to pump water (and nutrient solution) into the grow tray where the plants are located. The system works on a simple flood and drain principal. The pump is located in the reservoir which holds the nutrient solution. When the timer turns the pump on, the solution will be pumped into the tray to irrigate the plants from the bottom. The water pump should remain on for about 15 minutes (which is called the flood cycle). Once the water has reached the height of the overflow return fitting, the nutrient mixture will drain down back to the reservoir. The flood cycle will repeat every few hours when your lights are on. This allows your plants to have access to nutrients, water, and oxygen on a regular basis resulting in extreme growth.
