Frequently Asked Questions


1) Q. Will the Watering Rings plug up?

A1.    Not when the water is kept clean. Drip emitters do have very small diameter holes for the water to go through. Algae and grit can plug emitters, so the filter recommendation for preventing plugged emitters is typically a mesh of 80 to 120 (or 0.007 to 0.0049 inches diameter). The surface hole for emitters is typically less than 1 mm (or 0.039 inches). Liquid nutrients generally do not have suspended solids in them (grit) which would plug these small holes. Algae which grows in water can grow to a size larger than this. Most "mesh only" filters are screen and can allow a larger body of algae to work it's way through. The Y-Filter System (Plant Rocket) adds corse filtering, then a filer media that forces any particle to travel a zig-zag path through the filter, before reaching the wire mesh. These work to attract algae strings and keep your emitters clean.

A2.     Do a routine System Rinse after each crop. Make sure the rinse includes 10% Hydrogen Peroxide (to kill any algae). Soak the Halos then flush them out with clean water.


2) Q. How can such a small pump (250gph) provide enough water for up to 48 plants?

A. Because the each of the six emitters use only 1/6 gallon per hour, and one     Halo then uses 1 gph, a demand of only 48 gph on a 250 gph pump is not too much.


3) Q. I haven't heard of Garden Galaxy before; How can I find out if there are complaints?

4) Q. How will the Plant Rocket System save me time?

A. If you are currently hand watering, you will find that the time spent applying water to your plants is reduced to nearly zero. Even with automated drip systems, you will save lots of time when you need to move a plant out to prune or maintain it and then reconnect everything when you put the plant back in.


5) Q. Why is slow drip watering so important?

A. When water is applied rapidly to the soil in a container there are either sections of the soil structure that do not get properly moistened, or the entire structure is over watered. Therefore root development is poor in the areas that are not adequately or too wet.
