An extensive range of pumps suitable for use in hydroponic applications. The range includes both air and liquid pumps in varying flow rates from a single tank to a full growing system.
These are a key element in any successful hydroponic set up. Even with the best nutrients and the best system around, you can still fall short if there isn't an effective means of driving food and water to your plants when required - an important job for which the water pump was designed!
Air Pumps and Aeration
Roots need oxygen to function - it couldn't be more simpler than that! If your nutrient supply does not hold enough dissolved oxygen or isn't aerated using pumps and airstones, then your plants are likely to suffer. Aerating the root zone radically improves water absorption and nutrient uptake, increases cell growth/activity and accelerates overall root development. This process also stops water from becoming stagnant, which could otherwise lead to root health problems such as dreaded pythium (root rot). Creating an aeration system for your nutrient solution is straightforward and achievable irrespective of how much money you have to spend. All you need is an air pump, airstones and air line!
