Dutch bucket hydroponics explained! Today we learn how to build a Dutch Bucket hydroponic system. Dutch bucket hydroponics is one of the most productive hydroponic systems and I’m excited for the future grows this system will enable.
Hoochos explores the worlds of Hydroponics, Aquaponics, Permaculture, Homesteading, Fermentation, Technology Vanlife and DIY Builds to look at the world through a larger lens that can incorporate the best of everything into a rich and rewarding lifestyle.
Through self sufficiency we can reduce consumption and increase our hyperlocal household production.

There are two stores because dependant on where you live in the world one will be cheaper than the other (shipping) and it gives a range of design flexibility.

Eu estou assistindo fora da ordem, Like.
Do you have to use perlite or can you use a coco perlite mix, or those clay balls? What ki.d of options do you have for media?
great build.wonder if you ever fitted float valve.its just that when you start your pump your water level will drop and float valve will start replacing that water and by the time the system balances itself out you could end up with a bit of a flood.
Buys a kegerator, fills it with light beer HAHAHAHA great videos. thanks
continuous watering or what the ideal watering frequency.
Thank you for your reply
Why not make a brewery instead 😁.

You should use zip ties that have a hole on the end. They are designed for securing them with a screw.
Another great video
Finally a use for me empty FWK containers!
There's a lot of good advice here.
I never heard of Panda Film before but I wish I had. I just finished painting 12 more buckets. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
I'll add a few thoughts.
The drain does not have to be sloped. It will work just fine level. My buckets and drain both lie directly on my deck.
Use silicone calk to "glue" the cap and elbow in place. That leaves them removable for cleaning.
Some brands of perlite are very dusty. I had to switch brands of perlite to fill some of my buckets and there was so much sludge that it blocked the drains. Now I dump the perlite into a tub to wash it first.
Awesome info. Thanks for sharing!
Cheers for the uploads bro.
And great effort!
I'm digging the beer fridge dude!
If you had a two tear table could you drain the top bucket into the bucket on the lower shelf before it goes into the drain to the reservoir?
great video well explained do you sell the containers cant find any none online im in waterford seeking some happy to pay .ive subscribed and a big thumbs up.
We are buying a Dutch Colonial home this spring, so this is perfect.
What did you use to poke the holes for the flex tube barbs?
You seem like such a fun guy and I really wanna have a beer with you! 🤣 Thinking about getting into hydroponics once I've got enough space so your videos are really interesting!
After everyone’s comments about the beer, I had to push pause and go finish my work, so I could have a beer and watch this with y’all. All right I’m back, who needs a freshie? Need a chalkboard by the tapper so ya can keep count.
Excellent video and I feel I am learning more and more about hydroponics. Love the way you do your videos and the beer thing was cool. I found myself wanting a beer…lol.
Very amazing bro.
One of your best. Thank you.
Hey bro do the drains that go back into the return pipe need to be sealed around the gaps to stop algae growth or it doesn’t matter.
Hey mate great video! Does wind effect your system?
Awesome, question how strong is your pump feeding the pots?
Dumb question Mitch, what are those buckets you use called?
I'm in seq, if you up this way hit me up… Passionfruit sour IPA🤘starting a chilli farm so always want to know other growers
finally a yobo gardener…. sick of hearing yanks and poms… plus 10 bogan points for the beers… subscribing to this bloody legend!!
6:49 You look like Q on Impractical Jokers
Hey mate, any updates about whether there was any algae build up through the bottoms of the buckets?
Where do you get the black film from?
Do I need a pump? How about an endcap? LOL
Hello! I'm Davide from Italy! I really appreciate your videos! They are very informative and ingenious! Very good! I would like to ask you what kind of fertilizer you use! Also, how much do you set the PH and EC in uS / cm²? Thanks in advance for your valuable reply!
Great Video very rich with info which I would like to use in creating my own version of a dutch bucket system in South Africa
Ull love our falling angle larger in the uk home made 12.5 percent
did anyone ask your total cost , without buckets since free for you? and without that excess perlite ? obviously including endcap and the pump 😉
I like that the (assuming res float slightly below the return pipe) return pipe is where it is to create a constant waterfall effect that may aerate it some ?
i think ill buy these buckets , ill spend more on beer than the buckets doing this
Anyone know if there could be any negative consequences adding coco peat to the permiculite? Hydro shop here in WA is this video method good for Queensland with humidity but so dry in Perth WA we need to add some coco peat to help the roots. Bout to add it and thought I’d ask here
Really great stuff man, big fun here! What I miss though is really the water flow for the buckets, or the volume of the pump (l/min or per hour). Just put mine up but I do not get the flood and drain motion. Maybe somebody else can help out?
