    Dutch Bucket Hydroponic System

    I have been aware of the dutch bucket technique for years. Ive been impressed with the results and have wanted to give it a shot but have not had the chance. I had forgotten about the dutch buckets until i came across your 'instructable.' Point being: ive watched/read many how-to's and (altho it is logically just an ebb&flow setup) i have found your photos and guide to be most helpful. The position of the siphon tube, pipe diameters, and pump quality were all questions i still harbored until now. The dutch website prob has downloadable plans i overlooked, but i prefer to learn from somebody who has practiced in the field anyway (: and since i cannot, willnot, spend the money to order the system directly, i will use your instructable and my oklahoma ingenuity to 'fix' something up r...see more »I have been aware of the dutch bucket technique for years.

Sorry for the long-winded comment so early in the morning.. years after your post.. Just wanted to say thanks for your time and info, and i will promptly refer anyone interested to this website and your blog, which i will check out now (now that i think bout it, i hope youre still working on! Haha) My grandma use to grow a yardfull of strawberries but gave them up years ago when pests, disease, and weather that would make monsanto soil their britches got the better of her nerves. Cant wait to show up with a couple buckets, pumps, pipes, and plants to put on her patio (:
