The UC16XXL13 system features 16 growth sites with 13 Gal (49 Litre) Black Growth Modules.

What is the recommended veg time for this system?

The recommended veg time for the Under Current 16 Pot XXL system is 4-6 weeks.

How does the Sub-Current Culture® technology ensure uniform pH and EC levels in the system?

Sub-Current Culture® (SCC) technology maintains constant 24/7 nutrient circulation, ensuring that pH and EC levels remain uniform throughout the entire system.

What are the components included in the Under Current 16 Pot XXL system?

The system includes CCH2O Multi Mod Growth Modules with Drain Well, CCH2O 5.5" Heavy Duty White Lids with Port Hole, CCH2O 5.5" Heavy Duty Net Pots, CCH2O Easy Clean Manifolds with UC Spin-Tight Bulkheads, CCH2O Add-Back Kit, High Flow Aeration Manifold, Air Pump Bank with CCH2O Air Flow Regulator, Premium Linear Air Pump(s), Danner Mag-Drive™ Return Pump with 1" Return Hose, Optional Drain Out Kit, Adjustable Float Valve with Reservoir Adapter Kit, Cultured Solutions™ XS Growers Pack, and a 3-Year Limited Warranty.

Can I use the UC16XXL13 system with other nutrient solutions?
