the spinning stone sphere sprinkler system, or SSSSS
« on: May 23, 2024, 05:06:56 AM »

Accidental discovery, algea grew and clogged up the clear hosing i was using for sprinkler system.. (so that's why they use black water-hose)
i altered a spray nozzel by removing the middle piece, so it's basically just a small jet hole in a cap, that i can easily take off if it gets clogged.
Just messing around i found that the "expanded clay balls" could levitate in the water jet stream, usually about 3 to 10 seconds before falling.
i need the water to spray around the whole growing area, not in a jet, and the ball sprays the water perfectly, SO i built a wire cage to hold it..
And.. it totally works, well for a couple of hours, before having to start it up again, but it's a prototype, and could easily be made more stable.
i'll attempt to attach photo an video clip...
