Setting up rainpoint automatic watering system

Hello everyone, I just bought a rain point automatic watering system from Amazon and am going to set it up today in my 5x5 grow tent in 3 or 5 gallon grow bags. I was curious if anyone has ever set up one of these before and could give me a tutorial of sorts. Has anyone used this system before? I am moving my 7 girls from my 2x4 into my 5x5 flower tent . I want to get everything set in automatic feeding. Preferably have it turn on multiple times a day. So if anyone has any knowledge or suggestions in this area it would be much appreciated. Hope everyone is enjoying your weekend! Thanks for the support.


Are you in coco or soil?

So I’m not familiar with this watering system but I’m all about automation :grin:
I’ve used autopots exclusively the past year and absolutely love the simplicity and freedom that comes with watering systems…

Flowering 7 plants in a 5x5 seems like alot to me as I struggles with more then 4 in my 4x6. That is useing 5gal bags.
For this reason I would say the 3gal is probably a better idea with so many. I would imagine with this set up properly and useing something like coco-coir, rockwool, or even buddy stones. You could have some impressive yeilds in 3gal bags :man_shrugging:

I will echo @MidwestGuy and ask are you growing in soil or coco-coir or something else ?
What you’re growing in will play a roll in how often to run the system.

But I’ll be following along to see how it goes :grin:

Coco. They outgrew the veg tent this week so I’m gonna move them to the 5x5, do some defoliating and set up the automatic watering system.

I had a busy week so they missed their feeding for the last 2 days which is why I have a need for an automated system . I work 60 hour weeks some of the time so the automation will really be a game changer.

I use jacks nutrients

Love them

So I’ll probably leave them in the 3 gallon bags for the rest of their life cycle. The reason I decided to do 7 is because I did 4 last run and felt like I could definitely fit a coulee more plants in there.

This is the very reason i ended up with 8 xl spring pots.
Autopots are expensive but man I live these things.
No way I could grow what I do and work full-time.
In summer I legit work 90+ hours a week, in winter its more like 25 hours a week.

Maybe I should just get autopots then. I have no problem throwing up an initial investment to make my life easier and my pot better quality.

But since I bought the rain point system I’m gonna give it a try then maybe get autopots for my flower tent and use the rain point in the veg tent.

Ugh I still have a bunch of trimming to do. Anyone have any methods of storing un trimmed flower to trim at a later time without risking mold or other issues?

Oh yeah you can definitely fit them. Before I started useing the autopots I’ve had up to 9 in this 4x6. Some in 5gal some in 3gal useing soil and regular training.

I do alot less training now so things get kinda crazy in there with the explosive growth from the constant feeding over my hand watered soil grows :sweat_smile:

Not a bad problem to have :joy:

That is actually what i am doing right now :sweat_smile:

It takes me 3-4 days to trim :sleepy: I use just regular totes with lids of course if it just a few days, thats a 7gal tote.

If it going be longer then a few days, say a week or more.
I use my 1 lb grove bags
