Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. That's quite a well engineered filter Brent. I was just wondering on your FAWN system, does the small particle content of the water give you a lot of problems if you don't filter it down to 5 microns? I am thinking about the drippers and such.

  2. Nice build Brent. I'm concerned that as the 5 micron filter absorbs silt and becomes restricted that it will lengthen the drain time of the tank and eventually cause overflow. Maybe I'm overthinking it. I realize the overflow will just go back to the pond but It seems a shame to fill up your 100 micron sacks with silt from water you won't use.

  3. Another great video Brent! Great design! Really liked it! Where did you purchase your bulk heads used inside the filter design?

  4. Excelent build video! Great job on the filter build it looks pretty friggin cool and I sure it's going to do a great job for what you need it for. Thanks for sharing and Keep Building 👍
