Tony, Most of the support comes from the assembly that sits below the Aeration Bench. It forms a pretty rigid structure in this configuration.
The four corners, and the handle areas are especially strong when you sit the Aeration Bench on them. The two bolts in the upper Aeration bench do provide support, but only in a secondary capacity.

I assume you are still mixing your own soil in a 3,2,1 or some other variant? Dewayne, Just some round numbers.
Call around to some Hydroponics Shops as they most likely carry Pro-Mix. Also, larger full service Nurseries may also carry it.

The water never had a chance to get stagnant. I don’t think an airstone would be productive. With lots of water “flow-through”, oxygenation may not be necessary, as it is for an aquarium, for example. I am now more concerned about salts buildup in the Combo Mix over time, so that is why in the Guide, I am recommending periodic use of Clearex to “flush” the Combo Mix. Another Myth-Busters Challenge for next Season!
Ray- I started doing a flush last year with all my SWC’s. Good to see you on the ‘flush’ train finally, I think its really important as I stressed this last year in a thread. The Clearex is exactly what I used earthtauner year. Damon, What frequency of application did you find most effective? Maybe i’ll build 2 of the tubs and oxygenate one of them to see any differences there might be.
Plus it would also be moving air up and out threw the double wall which might aid in cooling. Originally Posted by duckfan. Ki I flushed my tomatoes with the Clearex once last year around late mid season. I think it all depends on the fertilizing schedule.
The more often you fertilize the more often you might want to flush. On a eatthtainer, did you hear about the northern arctic storm coming later this week?
They say its going to get really cold here with a slight chance of snow. Last edited by sprtsguy76; February 22, at All times are GMT The time now is Mark All Forums Read.
