Took my own Adivice
    #4270110 - 06/08/05 01:10 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Looked in my PmP.

More like, moved shit around...EW lol....Looks like a fish tank that's be neglected lol.

Here's What I Did...

Filled that fucker with Hot-ass soapy water. Sloshed it around. Dumped it out.

Took out all the Damn rocks. Layed them out evenly on a killer baking type pan. (took 3 runs =/ )

Baked at 350F for 30 mintues. Then baked at 500F for 15 mintues. I'm pretty sure everything died. *Puts on Goggles* lol

For the Plastic Tub. Filled with hot soapy(anti-bacterial soap!) water. Sloshed it around and used a brand new sponge - Right out of the pack. Old/used sponges harber a bunch of shit, better to just use a new one.

The tubing I just made sure all of it was submerged in water and then rinsed it out well. :thumbup:...It got that nasty water in it when I threw the tubing in there after I disconnected it from the pump :rolleyes:...whoops lol

Anyways, It looks brand new. I think I'll defiently clean it out more often. Probably after every 2-3 grow cycles...When I say grow cycles I mean flush lol...

So yea, Looks like it worked out real well...But damn...My hands ache, Lava rocks can put a hurting on ya....That's a Fuck-load-0-rocks :smirk:

Thought about it. Shit makes me nauses(sp?).

Plus it takes forever to get the smell out. *Pukes*

I'll consider it though.

did some reading and found that algae growth is condusive to high phosphate and nitrate levels in water. therefore recommendations of at least a 15% water change weekly will help to control algae growth. also the use of DI (deionized) water will help out as well. as our tap water has phosphates and nitrates present in it.
hope this helps
peace

thinking about it, if you were to say do that much water changing, why couldn't you install a spout on the bottom of the tub to drain some water and then just add in more. easy change.

True.

That's what I call an idea :smirk:

Hmmm...I'll look into it, Might be a bit of work, but w/e, I like it :grin:

Only prob. is...That shit would be heavy, I'd have a little ways to carry it lol.

But I'll check out lowe's/HD online, see what they're got :thumbup:

fix the spout where you could easily attach a water line to it.

Put the water line running out the window to drain the water outside.

Done, no carrying any water around.

I was thinking about that....but...I REALLY don't want to, to many spiders...dohwqirjmuhadfbmkbmaeth....gross...

Might get a water pump...Make a hose that runs from the PmP, to the bathroom....Somewhere in between i'll have some type of pump (grativy wont move it far enough or all of it)...

Then when i'm done i'll just put the hose up!...lol

Hot soapy water, followed by hot bleach water. IF you don't like the bleach smell, do it outside. Then rinse with vinegar (neutralizes the bleach) and bring inside.

you guys really don't have to use so much bleach it becomes hard to breath. it only takes about 1/4 cup to 1 gallon of water to desanitize and that's a pretty strong solution. anything stronger is rediculously strong to the point of waste. and use cool water, let it sit for 10 or so minutes.

when was the last time you cleaned your pmp out?

do you do it inbetween grows?

or do you wait til the fricken thing stinks so bad it could walk on its own?
lolzz

---

the pmp is basically just like a hydra-pod.

I clean my hydra-pod out after every grow cycle.

I clean the rocks out in a bleachy water...for 24 hours.

then rinse them several times in fresh water to get as much of the bleach out as possible.

a glass of bleach will make the water an extremely hostile environment for any life form, and it's not going to smell at all!
i use a little bleach in water AND i change water between grows, never had algae or animals swimming in :wink:
