How Timers Are Used To Control Aspects of A
Timers can play an important role in a hydroponic
garden. Depending on how your garden is set up, a hydroponic timer could be used to control several different aspects of your hydroponic garden.
Most often timers are using to control the
lighting of a hydroponic garden. Plant
varieties vary on the amount of light needed and light
duration often needs to be changed during the course of
the plant’s growth cycle. Using a hydroponic timer
allows you to set up a perfect lighting schedule,
turning your lights on and off at specific times.
A hydroponic timer can also be used to
control when and how often your ventilation
turns on and off.
Another area where a timer may need to be used is to
control the nutrient flow intervals of
the hydroponic garden. Some hydroponic systems, like
ebb and flow systems, can be set on timers to flood the
grow bed on regular intervals. Using a hydroponic timer
can allow you to regulate how often and also how much
your hydroponic garden is watered.
“I liked the fact that the device was easy to program, I just followed the printed instruction sheet, and both timers were ready to go in just a few minutes. Perfect!
Would recommend to anyone who needs a reliable timer to switch on/off lights, etc.”
“These time switches are quite large, but in the bigger scheme of things it doesn’t really matter. They’re easy to set as the buttons are reasonably logical, although you can reduce values, only increase – i.e., there’s no + or -, but it’s not an issue. I’m going to buy some more for all the Christmas lights etc that need to be on a timer.”
“Very easy to setup, works reliably. Easy to tell when it’s on/off. Handy extra clock in the corner of the room too now“
