Pumps, Air Pumps & Heaters
Active hydroponics requires regular amounts of water and nutrients to be delivered to your plant roots for your plants to survive. Pumps, air pumps and nutrient solution heaters can all be used to create and deliver a highly oxygenated nutrient rich solution, directly to your plant roots at the correct optimum temperature for them to thrive. We stock several submersible pumps, air pumps, air stones and nutrient solution heaters, which are all designed to help you easily achieve this.
