Project Plan: Automated drip system.
I’m fascinating by technology, yet still we are heavily dependant on land based farming for growing our food. Land based farming takes a huge portion of our water consumption per year, and has a huge potential for successful modernization.
I want to become independent, and grow my own vegetables, herbs and chillies to use for my daily needs. I could even brew my own beer, make my own liqours or cooking oils/sauces with self grown vegetables.
The plan is to start testing out a small drip system, and possibly a nutrient film technique once the drip system is working perfectly.
Pipe pieces needed:
110mm diameter sewage/drainage pipe (main tray / drainage)
110mm to 50mm transition (smaller and easier)
50mm 87* bend (bend drainage down)
Various drip stakes
Small feeder flex pipe
