  • good comments people i appreciate it, i have been looking at other businesses to start up and i keep coming back to this, i don't think other businesses will give me the satisfaction and feeling that this will, my missus said you have to spend money…

  • lol I'm starting to get the feeling people who do hydrographics don't want other people to do hydrographics lol
  • If this is a prime market for hydrographics, then why is this an issue? If no one is doing this in your area, and there is so much potential, then you will make whatever money you spend back in no time. So what SHOULD you do? Get an unbiased look …

  • @phantom3 that will be a very heavy extension cord. You're going to want a large permanent run to your workshop. If you're doing the whole Process in there (painting, dipping, etc) I would just have someone put in a 100A service breaker box and run …

  • It says free shipping i don't know how they manage that?
  • @phantom3 you are going to need an electrician to look at your situation. I wouldn't be brave enough to guess what the power situation is in someone's garage halfway around the world. Typically we run 4500 w heaters in our tanks because this is comm…
