Set Of 4 x 'Bato' Style Dutch Buckets for Hydroponic Growing Including Accessories

Dutch Bucket Hydroponics Systems are one of the most popular and effective options for hydroponically growing crops, especially fruiting or flowering crops. Ideal for tomatoes and other vining plants, peppers, cucumbers and many other alternatives - either in the greenhouse, indoors under lights, or outdoors.

The 'Bato' Bucket is one particular style of Dutch Bucket system, which utilises an efficient drip irrigation approach and a specialised draining system. You can use almost any type of growing media, including expanded clay pellets (aka Hydroton), perlite, and coconut coir. The overflow outlet should be connected into a central 1.5 inch (40mm) PVC drainpipe, leading back to the central reservoir tank, which in turn is pumped back to the drip irrigation to complete the cycle.

The Bato Bucket has a highly effective internal discharge system. By installing the two elbows, the overflow water is siphoned from the lowest level of the bucket and discharged into the central drainpipe. This eliminates the pooling of stagnant water, while at the same time maintaining a small reservoir of nutrient solution at the bottom of each bucket.. The Dutch Bucket measures 12-in x 10-in x 9-in (LxWxH), with a volume of approximately 11 litres. Our buckets are made from food-grade polypropylene, and are black in colour, which helps to block out light from reaching the nutrient and causing algal blooms.

Our buckets come complete with the two elbow that form the drain pipe, a lid (2 hole or 1 hole depending on your preference), and netpots to match your choice of lid.

Some users prefer not to use the lids and netpots but instead choose to plant the plants direct into the growing medium, which allows for easier access for maintenance should it be required during the growing cycle.
