No other system. Stealth Hydro Bubbleponics grow system. Without needing to take breaks to allow the root base to drain and absorb oxygen. on average. and that the unit is totally self contained and mobile. Bubbleponics has raised the bar and changes everything we are to expect from modern hydroponics. None of the other plants in the aeroponic products survived this stress test.Congratulations!! You are now the owner of an original. Bubbleponics is a hybrid design that takes the best from both worlds of the Deep Water Culture (aka DWC. one of the first hydroponic products to use real irrigation parts. Bubbleponics was able to revive 67% of the plants which started re-growing new roots and were able to complete their cycle. “bubbler”) and drip systems. This advantage is particularly pronounced during early vegetative phases when the plant’s root mass is still relatively small. The tests concluded that the Bubbleponic system provided significant recovery advantages over other systems when it came to anything that stressed or killed that root mass. bar none. a 30% growth rate increase over Aeroponics in the early vegetative stage. ironically enough. this is one of the simplest designs around. Easy As Pie Considering that there are no timers to set and tweak for the water pump. the plants in the Bubbleponic planter maintained their 4-5 day lead over the aeroponic plants throughout the cycle. . All other hype aside. plants in the Bubbleponic system performed remarkably when recovering from an over-fertilized condition. Almost all the parts used can be obtained from a local hardware store. requiring no tools. truly amazing. one of the best high speed hydroponic systems on the market. With almost the entire root mass destroyed. No other plants sites are thus dependant on any other as they would be in most drip systems that use T’ed designs. What Is Bubbleponics. This also ensures identical feeding conditions at each site. The distribution hub’s cap can be unscrewed to remove the plastic filter inside. where the main flow from the water pump is broken up into 6 smaller feeder tubes via a pressure regulating irrigation distributor. and I’ve seen my share. This includes a hub feed system. plants in the Bubbleponic system are able to deliver unparalleled growth energy. From setup to final clean up. In a series of stress tests. The Ideal Maintenance Solution Stealth Hydro specifically designed the Bubbleponic system with maintenance in mind. Cuttings placed into the system experience no noticeable transplant shock and practically start growing immediately. Hub Feeding Ensures Consistency The Bubbleponic design is. allows you such easy access to the nuts and bolts. Once dismantled. As the root mass of the respective plants grow larger. Bubbleponics converts its drip function to a constant feed flow directly to the inner roots. By using mainstream brands in the design it allows the end user to easily replace individual parts in a pinch through out their many years of bubbleponicing! The entire irrigation system can be dismantled by hand. Since the nutrient mix is highly oxygenated. In experiments measured against leading aeroponic systems. four days from a two week growing cycle. Exactly? The worlds first continuous plant feeding system. if there was ever a reason to consider purchasing a hydro kit. So. the Bubbleponic design shaved. growth rate advantages were less evident. the parts can easily be cleaned and re-assembled. maintenance should be at the top of the list. however.

for example. preferably an oscillating one. • • • Remove the lid with net pots and attached watering pipe mechanism from the base reservoir. Install the washer and then add the nut. Do not over tighten. Decide where you are going to setup your Dual Spectrum Bubbleponics system. Use the lowest setting on the fan. Tighten the nut by hand and then apply ¼ to ½ turn using a 1” wrench. Plants need carbon dioxide to grow. • Example Setup with Pro Reservoir II INSTALLING THE PRO DRAINAGE KIT • • • • • • If you added this accessory to your Bubbleponic kit. Place this fan so that it will blow air directly onto the plants. place in a safe place. Should you go with a closet. and check them against the included checklist. You will also need a fan to provide direct air movement onto the plants. use the pre-drilled hole in the center of the base for installing the drain kit. You can use a cheap duct fan to accomplish the ventilation. These fans are available at most hardware stores. Remove outer nut and one of the washers. so one needs to constantly replace the air in the growing chamber. you will have to make sure that the closet is ventilated. Insert threaded end into the reservoir.System Setup: Please read all of these instructions before performing any of them. Take out all of the parts of the box and the reservoir. Any cheap low powered fan will work. .
RINSE THE HYDROTON • • Remove the hydroton bag and place the rocks into a colander or large sieve. . Add six gallons of water to the container. Hold under running water in your sink until thoroughly rinsed and no crushed particles remain. Empty the reservoir and wipe down the area in which you observed the six gallon water level. With a waterproof permanent marker mark off the six gallon water line. The reservoir has now been calibrated. Observe the level at which the water reaches after the sixth gallon is added. • Failing to properly rinse the hydroton may lead to water pump damage and irrigation system failure. CALIBRATE THE RESERVOIR • • • • • • Get a one gallon container and use this to calibrate the reservoir.
CONNECTING THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM In some instances we may have shipped your irrigation system uninstalled in order to fit everything in the box the order shipped in. Remove the small black fitting from the water pump • Insert the large black fitting into the water pump . If your irrigation system was not installed complete the following steps: • • Remove the water pump from its box.
• • Remove the irrigation hub and attached feeder tubes from the box Connecting the pump to the irrigation system is done by sliding the tube onto the plastic fitting of the pump • When installed into the reservoir the arrangement will look like this: .
remove the stopper from the end of the air stone’s valve. Take the airline tubing out of the bag and insert one end through the black rubber grommet hole on the front of the reservoir. Thread the tube into the netpot as displayed below: SETTING UP THE AIR PUMP AND AIR STONE • • Remove the air stone from its packaging. . • • If not already.• • Place the pump on the bottom of the reservoir and pull the irrigation tube through the netpot hole. Securely attach the end of the air pump tubing that is inside the reservoir to the air stone’s inlet.
Be sure to allow enough airline tube into the reservoir so that the stone sits on the bottom. • Securely attach the other end of the air pump tubing that is outside the reservoir to the air pump outlet. . it is best to remove it so as to facilitate the maximum amount of airflow to the bubble disk. If you have excess airline tubing length.• Place the air stone inside the reservoir so that it sits on the bottom to either side of the reservoir. • You can now add water to the system.
filling the pots halfway to the way to the top. fill the remaining . Allow the power cord to slip underneath the lid with ample extension inside the reservoir for the pump. FILLING THE NETPOTS WITH HYDROTON • Lower the lid with the net pots and watering mechanism (now with the water pump attached at the bottom) into the water and snap the reservoir lid into place. Snap the lid into place. Remove one of the center pots and insert your hand to secure the water pump to the base of the reservoir. pump and tubing into the Bubbleponic nutrient mix. Replace the pot back into place. Rockwool cubes containing seeds can be added at this point as well.• • • Once the nutrients have been applied. Maneuver the feeder tube so that it sticks out of the hydroton as depicted in the picture below: • • • • You can add rooted cuttings or seedlings to the netpots and then cover the remaining area with hydroton. Add the hydroton grow rocks to each net pot. lower the lid with pots. • Position the rockwool cube such that it is right on top of the feeder hose. Allow the power cord to slip underneath the lid with ample extension inside the reservoir for the pump.
