The Windowfarms valve is designed for use with Windowfarms™ hydroponic foodgrowing systems and other hydroponic systems that rely on the air-lift technique to circulate water.
This valve has been uniquely designed to connect a 3/8" OD rigid plastic tube (water uptake) to 3/16" OD flexible air line (air outlet). The combination of the two creates an air-lift or Venturi effect inside the valve, allowing water to be pumped up the rigid tube.
Benefits of this design over standard T-valves are:
- Water flow will not be obstructed if the valve is seated at the base of the water reservoir.
- Rigid Tube and Air Hose are aligned vertically, allowing a compact and organized tube arrangement inside the bottom reservoir.
- 6"-12" higher pumping heights or 'head-heights' can be reached with this valve as compared to standard T-valves.
