WE introduce Dutch Buckets with siphon elbow fitting. Our Dutch or Bato Bucket is designed for growing vine crops like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants etc. They can be used with various type of growing media such as clay pebbles, perlite, coconut coir and vermiculite. The drain siphon elbow (included) maintain approximately 2 inches of water / nutrients in the bottom of the bucket to prevent the roots from drying out between watering.
The Dutch Bucket mounts directly on top of a 1-1/2 inch water collection pipe for efficient recycling of water. They are typically arranged in rows on the floor or on benches, with one irrigation supply pipe feeding drippers from above and one drainage line circulating back to the reservoir from below. Easily joined together, these systems can be scaled to any size, and are one of the most reliable and easily controlled growing methods.

A Dutch bucket, the Bato bucket is perhaps the most commonly used container for holding plants in a hydrponic growing system. Bato buckets can be connected easily, allowing hydroponic systems to be scaled to virtually any size needed. At first glance, the Bato bucket looks like nothing more than a square conventional planter. These buckets are used for both hydroponics and aquaponics, and feature the ability to use a single watering line and a single drainage line for multiple media beds when lined up together.
Hydroponics rely on the use of growing mediums to ensure that plants have a place to anchor, and benefit from stability. While larger media beds can be used, they are not always ideal. The Bato bucket system provides a solution that offers scalability, combined with a small form factor.
