Ebb and Flow System - Big Boy Hydroponic System
Big Boy Ebb & Flow Hydroponic System

The Big Boy Ebb & Flow Hydroponic System is an unbelievable value for any indoor farmer! This ebb and flow hydroponic system offers all of the versatility of much higher priced systems and MORE, at nearly half the cost. Using the digital timers included with the system, the fill and drain cycles can be timed down to the minute. The layout of the 3.5 gallon site pots can be easily condensed to meet spatial limitations, and also arranged to allow easy access for maintenance purposes.

The unique setup of the Big Boy ebb and flow system also gives it the ability to transform from the basic six pot model, all the way up to an 18 POT HORTICULTURAL POWERHOUSE! Six Bucket expansion kits, including the necessary tubing and connectors, can be added at any time to fit your growing needs. The Big Boy ebb and flow system also includes a water level adjustment feature, which is not available in other more expensive ebb and flow units.

As with many things, the simplicity of the Big Boy Ebb & Flow System is its beauty. The system works by pumping the nutrient solution in your reservoir through a controller bucket and into the sites. As the solution in the sites and controller bucket rise together, the float valve in the controller bucket stops the flow at the desired level. When the drain cycle begins, the solution is pumped through the controller bucket and back to the reservoir. After assembling and testing the system, simply set the flood and drain to begin delivering life giving water and nutrients to your plants! With the Big Boy System, there are no complicated and expensive control modules to go bad on you. Plus, if there ever are any issues, don’t sweat it. The system is covered under a 5 year warranty, and our knowledgeable sales staff can even make repairs on the spot at your local retail store.

The Big Boy Ebb & Flow hydro kit will outperform similar systems on the market, because of the inclusion of the HTGSupply Rhizocre Bucket Lid. These unique bucket lids have an aerated center core allowing more air and solution to the root zone, where your plant needs it!

In addition to its simplicity and the common sense water level adjustment feature, the design of the Big Boy Ebb & Flow System addresses many of the other shortcomings of similar systems. First off, the Big Boy utilizes larger 3.5 gallon, low profile site pots which sit the same height as 2 gallon pots and much lower than an ebb and flow table. The higher volume 3.5 gallon pot system allows its owners to grow larger, more robust plants while conserving vertical space!

Also, the Big Boy's convenient net pot style lids for its growing sites require less growing medium than other systems. Not only does this save you money on filling up the sites, but also makes cleaning and reusing hydroponic medium much less of a hassle. Anyone who's ever done so knows that is a big deal! Another advantage that the Big Boy offers is larger 3/4" high quality tubing and connectors. Not only does this feature provide faster fill and drain cycles, but it also helps to reduce the chance of the hydroponic medium getting caught in the lines. The larger lines paired together with flexibility of the two Dual Outlet Digital Timers with battery backup, give owners the ability to run well timed, precision flood and drain cycles.

The Big Boy Ebb & Flow Hydroponic System is a perfect illustration of the fact that at HTG Supply, we want you to succeed. Our aim is to offer quality products like this Big Boy ebb and flow system that not only save you money, but also help to reduce the time required for mundane tasks in the garden.

* This system does not come with any growing Medium. Each 10" RhizoCore Bucket lid holds 7 Liters of medium (6 pot complete holds approximately 40 Liters of grow medium)
* As with any hydroponic system it is a good idea to add an air stone in your reservoir to keep it aerated and moving.
