IWS R-DWC Pro Undercurrent System - With 25mm Icetube Pipe
Super-Oxygenates Root-Zones! Delivers Massive Yields with Minimal Maintenance
The IWS R-DWC system gives your plants a constant flow of perfectly mixed, high oxygen nutrient. The results have to be seen to be believed: you can expect an abundance of growth, faster nutrient uptake, and thick, healthy root masses. Nutrient is added to the main tank, making maintenance a doddle, and constant circulation means well mixed nutrient and a stable pH level. Unlike other R-DWC systems available, One Stop Grow Shop gives you 25mm return pipe to further reduce blockages.

How the R-DWC Works:
Deep water culture (DWC) is a popular growing technique where roots are suspended in net pots over heavily oxygen infused nutrient solution in what is commonly referred to as 'bubbler'. Using deep water culture as a growing method has a long list of benefits, including rapid growth rates and increased yields. R-DWC takes the principle of DWC and improves on it by creating a current that runs through each container, maximising oxygen levels while keeping nutrients evenly mixed. Nutrients can still be drawn back to the reservoir tank in order to make adjustments.
This kit is supplied with the new Flexi Tank system, an innovation in water storage. The Flexi Tank has been tested to absolute destruction and has never faltered yet. They offer all of the functionality of a standard water butt, but they can be packed away into a tiny space. They're easier to transport and can be stored in a fraction of the area that typical reservoirs can. IWS are heavily behind the Flexi Tank and we can see why.
The Benefits of Icetube Pipe
Icetube pipe lowers the temperature of the nutrient solution in your system using a simple but effective dual-core design. A white outer layer reflects light and lowers heat levels within the pipe, while the black inner layer protects against UV. This has a profound effect on the overall temperature of your nutrients. Lower nutrient temps (18°C) mean fewer problems and healthier plants. If nutrient temps exceed 21°C, the quantity of dissolved oxygen that your nutrient solution can hold is drastically reduced and your reservoir becomes a breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Every degree counts, especially during the summer – Icetube piping could well be the difference between a completely failed crop and a bumper harvest.
How to Use the R-DWC:
Please note: Our grow systems are designed to provide years of trouble free use, but for complete peace of mind, secure pipework that's joined onto barbed fittings using jubilee clips or cable ties, and place run-off trays / floor secure sheeting underneath the system. It's much better to be safe than sorry.
