Default Did you get that MG crap by mistake?

That's what I did. Somehow missed that it was coated with mg fert. I ended up filling the bag with water and letting it drain over and over again...poked a few holes but mostly just filled the bag once a day and let it drain.
I didn't have to do as much as you are.

Never done it, but if I was going to and had a bucket to be sacrificed I would drill a bunch of holes put it in the tub and just run water through it. Depending on how many holes you put it in you could make it drain fast of slow and get a quasi-soak out of it.

SkunkFan has a few good things to say
Talking I Got It!!!

They sell small screens at any plumbing place or even wal-mart that will cover the drain in the tub. Or a normal sink screen can cover the drain or set in it. Even a small sifter laid over it will work. They are at wal-mart too for $3. Don't waist your time on the screen deal. I can wash enough for six five-gallon buckets at once like this. It is very easy if your shower-head moves. I got a crazy girlfriend so mine has a long hose and a "high pressure" setting. Its perfect. Done in like ten minutes. Just cover the drain, dump it in the tub, rinse it, and scoop it back out and straight into your containers. Good question tho. Took me a three grows and several frustrating hours figuring this out while i was washing hand fulls at a time. Good Luck!!


:edit: Wash the shower first.

Default cleaning perlite

Well guys you gotta use a good screen to clean perlite. No easy way it is a pain in the ass. I use a large noodle strainer fill rinse under tap full pressure and dump into bucket and refill.

think that is bad try washing 40 gallons of crushed lava rock some time. That is the amount my grow buckets hold I do it the same way.

Good luck

I use a 5 gal bucket.

Cut a screen in a circle matched to the bottom of the bucket. Drill a few holes in the bottom of the bucket. Glue in the screen and let it dry. Instant perlite rinsing and storage bucket.

I too used a strainer and it was a huge pain in the ass. I thought about the using my tub but I personally didn't feel comfortable with that idea for my perlite had some significant dust and tiny pieces that I was concerned about putting down my drain. I mean if you did it with success then maybe I'll try it but I rent and all I could picture was cloggin my drain and having to have a plumber show up and find my grow.

Good thinking Never can be too careful.


I have a septic tank, and I don't want that dust in it. So i don't do anything in the house drains. I use a 5 gal bucket with a bunch of holes in the bottom and just keep running the water hose through it. It is a pain in the

I've done a few grows where I didn't adequately wash the dust, and it does make some nice perlite mud at the bottom.

I also haven't found an effective way of getting all the little capillary roots out of it so it can be reused.
