BUCKET KLONER

Author/u/RainManMJ

MATERIALS USED
I used the following: 5gal Bucket and lid; .5" Riser; .5" 360° sprinkler head; 300gal water pump; 1-7/8" Forstner Bit; 2" hydro nets; 2" foam inserts.
WRAPPING UP
Once the holes are cut from the lid and the water pump is fitted, assemble by placing the water pump inside towards the center. Fill the Bucket with pH'd water so the pump is submerged. (I put 2gal to get to this point). Place the lid on top and insert the nets and foam inserts within the 1 7/8" holes. Place clones in the foam inserts, turn on the pump, and enjoy your new clones!

The KLONER was a very easy and simple growing tool to create. It is a gardening assistant to help you create a perpetual plant environment. The pump is only a 0.5" riser, a 0.5" sprinkler head and a 300+ GPH water pump. Oxygen-rich water through their roots is pumped continuously to promote root growth. Hope you like it and build your own!

BUILDING PROCEDURE

Take the 1-7/8" Forstner Bit and drill 7 equidistant holes into the bucket lid. There are templates online and available in Hydroponic retail stores. Place water pump inside and attach riser and sprinkler. It will protrude higher than the Bucket initially. The goal is to keep the riser and sprinkler head just under the bucket so the spray will hit all the nets. Measure accordingly and cut the riser to fit. Assemble the water pump, riser, and sprinkler head once measurements and cuts are complete. Then fill the Bucket with water so it covers the water pump then stand back and plug it in to see how the water flows inside the Bucket. Note: do this test outside or keep a mop handy.
Once the water pump assembly is complete, empty the Bucket of water. Place the Bucket Lid with the 1 7/8" holes cut into it on top of the Bucket and check where to make a small notch for the water pump cord. Note how in the pictures it is placed towards the back; this assists me in placement when it comes time to determine which clones are in what position.Cut out a small notch for the power cord and test fit. I wanted it snug so water would not have an avenue for escape by cutting it too large or wide. Take a zip-tie and secure the power cord with a small loop to the Bucket. I used the handle opening for this part. 3 clones were removed and placed inside the foam disc. The 75 Watt UFO LED 36 " above the clones. Temperature remains within 75 to 80 degrees, with humidity around 50 to 60 percent.
