IWS Autodrain systems

Ready To Refresh?

From the Latin "hydro" (water) and "ponos" (work) or "work by water", hydroponics is a revolution for indoor cultivation, synonymous with automated closed systems. With the IWS Dripper System, each pot is fed separately from the nutrient tank, via a dripper assembly which is connected to the brain. This system is used mainly as a run to waste system rather than a recycling system. When feeding with a dripper system, you should make sure that on each feed there is a 20% runoff allowing the medium to flush on every feed.

The selection of hydroponic grow systems available from Hytec Horticulture, including IWS Systems - "the choice for the connoisseur grower", allow cultivators to fully optimise oxygen levels within nutrient solutions and maintain consistent pH and EC levels. As a result, cultivated crops develop consistent liveliness and production levels throughout growth.

The plants grow in a pot filled with clay balls hanging over a tank full of nutrient solution. This solution is distributed drop by drop at the foot of each plant by tubes or rings. Once drained by the support, it is collected in the tank where it is re-oxygenated using an air pump. The solution and oxygen continually irrigate the healthy roots. It is then redistributed at the foot of the plant and so on. The most used supports are clay balls, rock wool, coconut fibre, chippings. These modular systems can be individual or interconnected, powered by a standard tank.

In fact, there is so much to choose from: the substrate, grow tanks, pipes and pots etc. Without forgetting the size of the systems so that they adapt perfectly to your culture box or parts. Hytec Hydroponics offers the biggest brands in the hydroponic market: AutoPot, Wilma, Amazon, IWS, NFT, Ebb & Flow, Quad & Octo Grow and Multiducts.
