    I would think it would be fine. I haven't used them but once so I'm not an expert on them lol.

    Heya, is this microphone still on??
    Noob grower with his first autopot here.....
    How the eff do i "turn on" the autopot?
    Im going to try and run a single pot system, got it all assembled this morning, and now im scratching my head cause i cant figure out how to turn this thing on.

    Edit- so i think i got it figured out. I just watched 6 vids and not one mentions the GD tap valve.
    I cut the tubing right outside of the reservoir and hooked up the tap valve, then hooked the tubing from the tray to the tap valve. Now i can see how you "turn on" the autopot.
    Christ on a crutch lol, i just simultaneously felt like an idiot and a BOSS.

    LOL! be sure you have a 30Ml syringe if you run nutes, that vale plugs up occasionally. I just coonect a short piece of tubing to the vale and the syringe and back flush it.

    Are you doing organics? if so, it will work fine, just be sure the surface is moist, if not water it a little. Run your pots with NO gravel, pebbles etc in the bottom. Drainage material in the bottom of the pot is a myth and contrary to the laws of hydrailics.

    I put an inch of soil ( or coco if that's your preference ), in the bottom and then the airdome. As the soil/coco holds the most water at the bottom, I feel it makes the airdome more effective in aerating the medium.
