New to the hydroponic scene and poised to take the irrigation world by storm is a product that I’m sure will have many manufacturers kicking themselves over because they didn’t think about it sooner. It is based on an extremely simple principle that will have a significant impact on the performance of most hydroponic systems currently found on the market.
High temperature is something that all indoor growers will suffer from. The nature of the beast that is high intensity lighting is that it gives users the awkward by-product of a shit ton of radiated heat within the grow room environment. Equipment currently exists in many forms to deal with this heat to stop its detrimental effects on plants (extract fans, air conditioners, nutrient chillers) which all generally are fairly pricey (albeit necessary), however one aspect that has not previously been catered for is the humble irrigation pipe.
The temperature of your nutrient solution is highly important when it comes to correctly caring for your plants. If the water is too cold it will shock the roots and conversely if it is too hot it will promote the growth of anaerobic diseases. A lot of attention is given to the reservoir’s temperature, but before now, not so much to the irrigation pipe. Water left in your drip lines between irrigations in standard black piping can quickly get to a level of heat that will be detrimental for roots, and leave you with a temperature in your pot that can hinder your plants’ progress.
Iceline Pipe defeats this problem in one fell swoop. It is essentially comprised of two layers or cores. The inner layer being black and the outer layer being white. The outer white layer reflects any radiated grow room heat energy while the inner black layer prevents any light penetrating, eliminating any potential for algae/bacterial growth.
Simple but effective: initial test data show an average 10% drop in temperature within irrigation lines and a 3% drop within the plant pots. This difference can have significant impacts on plant health and be a lifesaver in summer months. Iceline Pipe provides an easy fix to nutrient problems commonly associated with high temperatures.
Once you try black you never go back!!! Iceline is proud to finally set this age old quandary straight…
