DWC AND R-DWC
WHAT ARE THEY?

DWC and R-DWC grow systems permanently suspend roots in a root chamber, while an air stone in the chamber oxygenates the solution.

Access to oxygen and nutrient solution is completely unrestricted.

Growth is exceptionally fast and the crops are huge.


DWC AND R-DWC
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

DWC GROW SYSTEMS

In DWC grow systems the solution stays in the root chamber...

...until the grower remixes it either manually...

...or by using a timer.


R-DWC GROW SYSTEMS

The R-DWC grow systems constantly move the solution between the root chambers.

The constant recirculation between the root chambers keeps the pH balanced...

and the solution even more oxygenated. For larger scale set-ups R-DWC (recirculating DWC) outperforms DWC.
