I had both extra time and extra parts & material today so I decided to make use of both. I worked on the deep flow technique hydroponics build #1 (DFT build #1) and wanted to make use of some unused space on the system. I had leftover polyethylene plastic from when I had a sheet cut to make the lid for the reservoir tank. The new shelf was simple to put up with a few small “L” brackets and a few screws.
These pictures of the deep flow technique hydroponics build show this system getting more and more practical as all of the space is being made use of as much as possible. The system itself is somewhat large too, so having a shelf to put sprouting trays or micro greens trays on is a welcome addition. The plastic used seems to lend a nice touch to this DIY design. Some DIY hydroponics system designs are done very inexpensively but they are not something you really want on display in your home. I tried to balance design, functionality, and price when making this DFT hydroponic setup. This system could always be tweaked to make it look even better by using better quality wood and staining it or even painting the wood to match. The bones of the system could remain the same as what is explained in the plans ebook for this DFT hydro build #1 with your own unique added touch.
The above video obviously shows more of the details and actual look of the shelf added to the hydro system. It only took a couple of hours to cut materials and install the shelf. All said and done it makes this DFT Hydroponics system even more efficient and attractive.
