"Get ready for the RUSH!!... The latest and highest yielding growing technique utilising the new recirculating (undercurrent) deep water culture systems from Nutriculture.
RUSH takes Deep Water Culture growing to the next level. With up to 34 nutrient circulations per hour, no timer to manage, and little media used. The Rush RDWC system is a combination of simplicity and top-end components, resulting in spectacular growth and huge yields.
How the RUSH RDWC hydroponic system works
The 6.5 litre mesh pots hang into the DWC reservoir, where an air-stone creates a constant stream of bubbles directly beneath the mesh pot. This creates a highly oxygenated nutrient rich environment for the plant roots, resulting in exceptionally fast root growth. Combine these benefits of Deep Water Culture growing with the constant rapid recirculation of the Rush and you truly have a next level hydroponic system that will deliver results time after time.
This Recirculating Deep Water Culture method of growing allows plants to feed as much as they need, whenever they need it, preventing over and under-watering.
Deep Water Culture is growing in popularity and is rapidly becoming the preferred method of growing for more and more growers across the world, with Rush leading the way in Recirculating Deep Water Culture systems.
Hints & Tips
Water temperature - To maintain the temperature of the nutrient solution Rush can be connected to a Boyu nutrient chiller. The ideal temperature is from 18-21oC. *We cannot over-stress how much adding a nutrient chiller to an RDWC growing system makes. The difference in overall growth, health and yield ability is more than impressive. To us at Somerset Hydroponics, a nutrient chiller is almost compulsory if you want to achieve maximum output...seriously, the yield increase is staggering!!
Pump - leave the pump on 24/7 – the roots need constant access to nutrient solution and oxygen.
Reservoir maintenance - Close off the piping at either end of the tank you want to clean with the stoppers provided. This allows plants to continue to be fed while maintenance is carried out on another reservoir
Water temperature - To maintain the temperature of the nutrient solution Rush can be connected to chiller. The ideal temperature is from 18-21oC.
Water levels - Rush has a unique adjustable float valve to maintain water levels.
When water levels need to be higher for shorter roots, adjust the float valve upwards. When the roots are longer, push the float valve down, so the roots are less covered by nutrient solution and have even more access to oxygen.
All systems come complete with air-pump, water pump, air-stones, all tubing, all fittings & header flexi-tank.
