Grow Room Design, Rev. 2

Minor tweaks so that the Foylon goes on the inside, covering up the PVC and reducing degradation from UV light.

Enclosure will be built with 1″ PVC and Foylon walls. It will measure 5.3′ x 3.75′ x 6′. The enclosure will be anchored to pressure treated plywood at the base. If need be, it will also be anchored to the basement ceiling. Foylon will be attached with Wide and Tough Gorilla Tape. Weatherstripping will be placed along the edges.

Grow Containers will be 5 Gallon Food Grade Buckets sitting on milk crates with 6″ net pots in the lids. They will have either 2 or 4 mist nozzles depending on mist pattern. They will drain from the bottom, back into the reservoir.

Reservoir will be ~10 gallon in size, sourced locally, and depends on local pricing and availability.

Pump will be an Aquatec 8800 RO Booster pump with an 80/100 Pressure switch and Shurflo RV Accumulator.

Intake fan will be a 6″ inline 240CFM duct fan filtered with an automotive cabin air filter at the intake.

Exhaust fan will be a Ventech 6″ inline fan and carbon filter combo.

Power will be supplied by a 15 A Circuit spliced from the nearby 20 A Bathroom circuit, mounted in an RV electric hook-up.

Lighting will be two Apollo 400 Watt ballasts with wing hoods, swapped between HPS/MH as appropriate.

Controller will be a Raspberry Pi, with relay switched outlets and temp/hum inputs.
