The Root Spa is a Deep Water Culture system. This 5 gallon bucket system is very simple, yet it grows large plants efficiently. After a very short time, you will realize the advantages of this uniquely easy-to-use, inexpensive, and forgiving system! Pumping raw air into the nutrient solution, without the use of air stones, is not only cost-effective but is also highly effective at providing the maximum possible oxygenation for your nutrient solution.
Available in Single, 4 Unit, and 8 Unit Systems
• Water tight seal to guarantee no leaks
• 8" bucket basket to hold your choice of growing medium
• Multi-purpose air hose delivers air from the pump to the bottom of the bucket
• Air pump to oxygenate your water to encourage root growth
• ½" grommet fitting
• ½" elbow fitting

NOTE: Setup of the multi-bucket Root Spa system is the same as that of the single-bucket system, with the main difference that the multi-bucket system uses a multi-output air pump, while the single-bucket Root Spa systems use a single dedicated air pump.
Media sold separately: You can use your choice of hydroponic media, such as clay pebbles, #4 perlite, rockwool mini cubes, coco chips, etc. Since this is a hydroponics system, soil should be avoided. Soil may contain dust, fungi, and bacteria, all of which can contaminate a hydroponics system.
