IWS manufacture the finest hydroponics systems on the market to date and have quickly become the choice for the connoisseur grower. IWS pride themselves on quality rather than quantity and only supply the best.
Hytec Hydroponics range of products from IWS Systems, 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. IWS have succeeded in filling the gap in today’s horticultural market by introducing easy to operate quality horticultural grow systems at affordable prices.
Flood and drain is an irrigation technique that fills the pot with a nutrient solution from the bottom. As the nutrient solution rises in the container, it forces out the air and saturates the growing media. As the nutrient solution drains from the pot, fresh air is pulled back into the growing media enriching it with oxygen - vital for healthy root growth. Frequent flooding and draining of the pot should occur in order to optimise the available oxygen in the root zone.
With a 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.
Deep water culture is a method of growing which leaves your plant’s root submerged in the oxygenated nutrient solution. The IWS DWC oxygenated pot is one of the simplest and best value routes into hydroponics available. The pot is filled with a nutrient solution which is continuously oxygenated by an air pump. The containers are not connected which means that each pot works independently from any others, meaning that each pot must be maintained individually.
Combined with a supply of water and high-quality nutrients, light activity will allow plants to assimilate carbon dioxide (CO² = photosynthesis fuel) and release oxygen. Thus, the higher the luminous intensity, the more the plant will grow, remain perennial and produce abundant flowering.
To enhance the intensity of horticultural light, utilising reflectors, such as the maxibright horizon, is a perfect solution. Some bulbs, including HPS and MH bulbs, will need a digital or magnetic ballast. Digital Ballasts, such as the maxibright daylight, regulate volts and watts electronically with reduced power consumption. Digital Ballasts are the most economical solution to control powerful light sources as they do not create resistance, thus, produce almost no heat or noise and can be used with all fluocompacts; whatever the power of the neon.
