Subject: Hydroponic Double Dutch Bucket system on a Yacht Tue Feb 24, 2015 4:43 pm
Here is my initial design for a self contained hydroponic double dutch bucket system for a 50 foot boat.
The main goal is to have it completely self contained... one on the Port side, and one on the StarBoard side of the vessel, and be able to keep the weight to 120 pounds each (excluding the plants).
The entire system will have air pumps and liquid pumps that are 24v DC, to be powered from the main solar array all day long. Once the sun goes down, the system is off. Perhaps the air pump could stay on all evening. We will have to see.
