"I was thinking about black poly but not sure how much heat I'm talking about. Would probably have to support it off the aluminum to avoid melting with an insulator of some sort."

"Labor costs add up exponentially in commercial large scale operations. Nate's zip concept drastically reduces the time planting, harvesting, cleaning and reinstalling. Are your towers easy to disconnect, carry over to a harvesting table, clean…"

"Actually, I could just as easily set up my towers in sets of rows and columns just as easily in a greenhouse. I just don't have a greenhouse at this time, so that's why mine are set up against the wall. Mine will last just as long as the…"

"New to me too but Wiki says it is NOT for potable water and cPVC is the best. (less plasticizers).  So much to learn and sort out. Well then the AL should be fine! Cool. What is the tubing material inside the AL to be?"

"Well said Averan and I meant no offense toward Nate. There is a huge market for the hobbyist as well (as Steve J would say "The rest of us") and I am not sure who was throwing stones at Larry but I wanted to lend him my support."

"Apples and oranges. Nate's towers are designed for commercial use. In other words, designed to last and to minimize the time it takes to plant and harvest. And designed to be able to set up easily in a variety of locations. Your towers are…"

"Some research and some do. BTW I added drip waste oil to 2 of my woodstoves last Fall and went thru about 60gal of oil. A slight odor in the air at times but it sure helped us get thru a doozy of a Winter with temps at Minus 20F. I was going to use…"
