Ebb & Flow Hydroponic Kits
Ebb & flow systems are hydroponics at their classic best: the “workhorses” of the hydroponics industry.
Simple, reliable, and prolific, they provide periodic flooding of the plant roots with nutrient solution, followed by draining back into a reservoir for re-use. Hence the name “Ebb & Flow” or “Flood & Drain”.
The HydroTek systems are for large specimen plants if you have room to spread out a little, or for a closet setup.
HydroTek ebb & flow systems
Grow large in a small space with the classic Ebb & Flow. Automated and effective, ebb & flow delivers optimal water, nutrients, and oxygen to the plant roots.
Kits include a pump, reservoir, grow tray, ebb and flow kit, and galvanized metal frame.
