Air for PMP
    #4550900 - 08/18/05 11:12 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I know that the teks show that airstones are used in the bottom of the PMP under the rocks, perlite, etc. But what I'm wondering is if I could simply plug one end of the tubing, cut small holes along the tubing for air holes (roughly 12" along the tubing), run the tubing all along each side of the container, and put the rocks over them just as I would with airstones. That way air is escaping the tubing all along the bottom of the container. Would this work as well as using a couple air stone wands? Just curious because this worked very well for my bubble cloner when I was growing weed. I'm not sure how much different it would be in this situation.

It works, thats how mine is. My holes in my tube are like pin-sized i would advise putting a few bigger holes in it also because i dont think mine are getting as much air as they should.

If you have hard PVC hosing you can heat a pin/needle and stick it through melting

Oh, it'll just be the regular aquarium air pump tubing or hose. On my buble cloners all I did was snip small cuts into the tubing about 1.5" apart from eachother with finger nail clippers. So this should be okay huh? Maybe I'll make more of them with the PMP and make them smaller than with my cloner to get a more even distribution of air.

Yeah the bigger bubbles will work better so that sounds good.
