Iceline is a double-walled irrigation pipe that helps protect the temperature of your nutrient solution rising too high, as its widely know to do when using standard black irrigation piping.
Iceline is highly recommended for use in larger rooms that use long lengths of irrigation pipe, and/or high-intensity lighting, as this can give an unwanted rise in the temperature of your nutrient solution, although smaller setups will also see a benefit of using Iceline over standard piping.
When Iceline is used with your hydroponic system, it can give an average drop of around 3 degrees Celsius, but reductions of up to 8 degrees Celsius have also been recorded. This is especially pleasing to know if you’ve spent time cooling your nutrient solution using a chiller, only for it to be warmed up to above the required temperature while travelling through the piping.
Simply cut the Iceline Flexi-Pipe to the correct length using pipe-cutters or sharp scissors. Fit Tees and Elbows to the cut ends where required by warming the end of the pipe in hot water and pushing the fittings in. Finally, insert the Iceline Flexi-Pipe or ends of the fittings into the appropriate sealing-glands and tighten.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
Iceline pipe lowers the temperature of the nutrient solution in your system using a simple but effective dual-core design. A white outer layer reflects light and lowers heat levels within the pipe, while the black inner layer protects against UV. This has a profound effect on the overall temperature of your reservoir tank. Lower nutrient temps mean fewer problems and healthier plants. If nutrient temps are too high the quantity of dissolved oxygen that your nutrient solution can hold is drastically reduced and your reservoir becomes a breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Every degree counts, especially during the summer – Iceline piping could well be the difference between a completely failed crop and a bumper harvest.
The Iceline Flexi-Pipe has the added benefit of dramatically reducing the chances of getting pathogenic bacteria and fungi because of its temperature lowering abilities, again down to the fact you’ve got more dissolved oxygen in your nutrient solution.
“’Found this easy to use ans whilst I think it has ade a difference, I am not 100% sure yet. Fingers crossed.”
