The long awaited second half of my Waterfarm Review is here!
The first part of the review was about the setup and appearance. This.. Is about performance.
I’ve found that the whole setup of the Waterfarm is satisfactory, at the very least. I’ll start from here:
It’s pretty user friendly. I find that a drip irrigation system is one of the most simple types of irrigation. The drip ring has a pretty good spread, both dripping and just slightly spraying at the same time. Even with my plants slightly far away from the direct drip, it keeps them quite saturated.
I’m pleased with the reservoir and pump. I’m really happy that the system will keep the plants aerated enough to let you leave the pump on 24/7. I did find that the reservoir required a bit over 2 gal. to get it to the required limit, which leaves a bit of inaccuracy present when measuring.
I’d have to say that the best thing about the waterfarm is it’s simplicity. With a simplistic design, simplistic functions, and easy to use 3 part nutrients included with the package, a new user to hydroponics can jump right in without a lot of know how, but a seasoned grower will still feel comfortable with it.
The Waterfarm comes with all you need to get started, minus a growing medium and seeds. It’s relatively easy to hook up, functions well, and is something you can look at as reliable.
Form and function are simple. Easy to use, easy to love, I’m going to back up my ending statement from Part I by saying that whether you’re just looking to get into the wonderful word of hydroponics, or know damn near everything about it, this is a great system to have. I’d like to thank Jesse Pennington at GenHydro for this wonderful system, Matt for his information and help when I had no IDEA what I was doing, and Ben for all his help with the upcoming expo.
