  • 6.5 gallon aeroponic buckets what size water pump?

    title sums it up Im going to make a few aeroponi buckets and they will be 6.5 gallon same dimensions as a 5 gallon bucket but square so it adds 1.5 gallons of water.

    I have read and read and read and people seem to vary widely on the sizee of pump needed.

    Im looking at the eco line of pumps I have some good info on them here...

    Im wondering howw importand the amount of water is vs the force of the water?

    I read that those small sprayers only put out around 1 to 10 gph, in fact most like the ones i see used are like 1 to 3 gph.

    So should i be looking for pumps with lower water flow and higher pressure?

    for example is the eco 132 better then the eco 185, less watts and more head pressure?

    In this instance the pressure is more important as it is what dictates your spray pattern/coverage. You'll want an ecoplus 264 or larger. I don't know those sprayers but ez cloner sprayers are more commonly used. Good luck with your build!
