Part one of how to build an aeroponics tower. This is built using cheap food grade components with a focus on using materials that are easily sourced or recycled. Aeroponics uses small droplets of water and hydroponic nutrient mixed with air to maximise quantity and yield in a small area. Ideal for balcony/patio gardens, indoor or outside. Part 2 coming soon.

And if you want to use the sprayers, just one pipe down the middle with multiple sprayers would cover the whole inside of the drum. Looking at the spray, it spray out pretty far so it would spray everywhere.
On your spray pipes, I've watched other videos on tower gardens and the simpler way would be drill holes in the Lowest part, the valley or ledge of the lid to just let the water drip down the inner sides of the drum. And that's a low pressure pump or a solar pond pump.
I've been working on aquaponics, but will try to incorporate this into my system as well. Thank you for sharing.
I'm gonna make one of these! Thank you! Way cheaper than 4in pvc towers!
"I don't know what that is in imperial"
Sir they're called freedom units
this is the kind of solution i've been looking for. Thank you!
Much better if you make by doing not token
Did ya consider heating the edges of the holes (with a heat gun) before forcing the elbows in. It gives a tight fit & elbows position precisely as placed when the blue PVC cools.
I love this informative video. Can you talk about how you were able to get the sprayer set up into the barrel without removing the lid or bottom please?
Cut oversized and use a ring gasket insert to ensure a snug fit for the elbow.
To much work for me for a few greens. All those plastic elbows are costly too ! A few dollars each. The drums cost a lot and the shipping is a killer ! NOPE. Easy Peasy methods of growing greens is for me. Just poke a hole in a bag of topsoil, plant seeds, water and done !
Did you run the hole saw backwards when making the bigger holes?
Where did you get the drainage outlet on the bottom of the barrel? I want to thank you for inspiring me to give this build a try. I live in Brisbane and I cannot find the drainage thingymagic
is your water pump on a timer? if so what frequency does it spay water and for how long ? thank you
Use a street 45... It's a fitting term describing one end is A male end.
Thank you for your YouTube, it was excellent video for anyone who wants to start.
