    Anyone use an electric water jug pump for nutes?

    The growweedeasy guide mentions an electric liquid transfer pump, but the handle has limited range. I was thinking of getting one of these:

    And enough plastic tubing to reach the plants at the back of the tent.

    If you are using soil nutes you will jam up the pump quickly. For pumping applications, make sure to only use hydro nutes. This way your pump will last until it’s planned obsolescence.

      I use the battery operated transfer pump that they show in the section on watering your plants. I use it with my outdoor scrog because its a little difficult getting under the screen & using a watering can.I use it with watering rings & some pvc pipe & extra tubing. I keep the pump & watering rings from plugging up by flushing with clear water (ph adjusted) I made the holes in the rings a little bigger too which seems to help,Hope this helps.Keep On Growing!!
