    Grow on set up

    Is anyone able to advise where I can get a reasonably priced grow on set up.

    Ideally this would be fibreglass, rectangular with intergrated bottom drain and have a capacity of around 100 gallons

    One like this would be ideal but not £600 Grow on set up


    Thanks

    Thanks for input.. I am aware the size is not ideal but I have limited space in the garage. I may consider getting a cabbin for it so I can increase the size.

    Do you know where I can source the tanks?

    I know it's not ideal but rs as has had amazing results with a very small volume big is better and it takes massive work to keep the water but it's working for him. There is a grown on setup on the selling page is that no good might be a drive out like but hey just tell the Mrs your taking her out for the day and buy dinner

    Hi Andy.

    Iím in Oxford so dartford just the other side of the M25. Set up sounds ideal and I am definitely interested in taking that off your hands price depending. Iím not in any immediate rush for this so happy to wait until available.

    Have you got a photo of the setup? What sort of date were you looking so move it on?

    Thanks
    Mike

    It will be up for sale as soon as i get my arse in to gear and fish off my man/koi cave.
    I paid £200 for it 2nd hand and that included delivery of about 25 miles, Tonbridge to Dartford
    Since ive had it ive added a UV and new central heating pump.

    I also have a 4' x 4' x 4' tank to collect
    It was used on a water treatment site for chemicals
    When i said id be cleaning it with a strong dose of PP, the site operator replied, " that is what we used it for anyway"
    It was part of their PP dosing system for the site.
