Jay, if you have something like a coir mix in your towers, you could go hours at a time, without the pump 'on'. Of course, the time depnds on the tower's size, the mix, how big your plants are, and your weather in your area.

David, I appreciate it.

 

Your welcome Jay...

We have strawberrys in verti-gro's at Sahib Aquaponics. We use coir with small mieralwool cubes mixed in. The pump runs maybe 5 or 6 times a day.

Good luck, hope to see some pictures soon,  with lots of strawberrys...

What is Coir?

David

Coir is coconut fiber.
