Hydroponic fun Tough Guy 24 Pod Tower
I have sold hundreds of Tough Guy towers all over the United States from Florida, New York, Oklahoma, California, and Washington Texas and Oregon and many states in between.
The Tough Guy is rugged and friendly to use. It really works growing just about anything that has roots.
The tower has just a few parts.
About 42 inches tall overall the tower is made from 6-inch rigid PVC pipe with 24 grow pods mounted slanting upward. Pods are screwed in place with a stainless steel screw that protrudes into the root area. trapping your plant in place as roots grow around it. The grow pods are sealed to the tower ensuring that the nutrient/water flow is contained within the tower recirculating into the pail.
Start from seeds planted in Grodan foam blocks provided in tower package.
Much quicker, plant small seedlings with roots exposed and mostly washed off. Seedlings will grow with almost 100% success. Plant by splitting the provided foam block around the plant stem above the roots and stuff it in a grow pod.
The nutrient, 10-5-14 Maxigrow, at least a full season, is supplied. A couple tablespoons or less per gallon of water is stored in the 5-gallon food grade pail. It will last at least several days in moderate weather. Tomatoes drink a lot and in hot weather will need a little more attention.
A high-quality pump with only one moving part is provided. Let the pump run continuously or turn off at night, providing a constant visual aerated nutrient fountain to drizzle down inside the tower feeding the roots uniformly throughout the tower.
The adjustable flow pump is filtered and is readily accessed by lifting the tower from the pail support collar, even when it has a season of growth. Roots can be trimmed as the plants grow by lifting the tower out of the pail support collar.
See the attached pictures of a grown from seed sunflower surrounded with peppers, squash, herbs, and tomatoes at the base. Even a Mellon rests on the base area.
A word of caution: Please take precautions about water occasionally dripping or minor splashing from the pail if you plan to keep it indoors. Note a flow control valve mounted outside the tower is easily accessible on the external fountain pipe. A split dark blue cover/sun shield for the pail is provided.
What I found works well is to place your complete tower assembly in a larger decorative tub that will catch any stray drips. Attractive, large low-cost bowls are available at Lowes. . The large basin is NOT part of this order.

My shipping policy is pretty simple. Most of my towers fit in a 12x12 x36 inch tall corrugated box.
I place the pail and tower in the box and fill the box with shaved foam chips, to the top of the tower
I then place the pump and nutrient package of Maxi GRow in the box with more chips. finally I poke in the various pipes
I add the foam grow blocks and 8 page assembly instruction and planting hints directions.
Keep the packing material until you are sure you want to keep the tower.
