Hydroponic Food Factory
It has been quite a while since I have had this setup, so I don't know sorry.Most of the weight is in the PVC pipes, and I would guess maybe a few kilograms or so.If you are planning a build, go to a hardware shop and see how much the pipes weigh to get a better idea.Good luck!
Neat setup. Odd question: How much does it weigh, w/out the water reservoir?

That sounds fantastic!I love the idea of teaching children about hydroponics, I have found it has given me a greater appreciation for how plants work, and I'm sure it would spark an interest in young kids.If you do it, you should document it as an instructable, I would love to see it!Good luck!
Dear NathanWilliams,Thanks for your very thorough reply and an apology for this late answer. Your comments and suggestions are much appreciated and I feel much more confident diving into the project now. As a matter of fact I might try it out with some of my pupils in 5th and 6th grade. Again, thanks your effort! :-)Cheers, Nicolai (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Hi there! It's great to read about your tips'n tricks for DIY hydroponics. And it's a great project, NathanWilliams. However, my interest goes along the line of helping my teenage son setting up an easy system. He has little experience so I want to make it small and affordable and then see if he really cathes on. What would you recommend for a DIY start-up, ie. lamps, pipes and buckets? BTW the system would need to be indoor and in a somewhat dark environment (at least three months from now). Cheers, Nicolai
