What Is a Locked-in Media Guard?
For media-based systems, the locked-in media guard prevents clay media and other grow mediums from flowing into your stand pipe and drains. Slits run from the bottom of the 4″ PVC media guard halfway up the pipe to allow water to flow consistently without interruption or obstruction!
Using a 4″ flexible cap as its base, the cap is secured to the grow bed using a 1″ Banjo Bulkhead.
On the exterior of the grow bed, a 1″ PVC nipple easily threads into a 1″ PVC bushing for water drainage. The nipple is easily removeable to become compatible with your own plumbing configuration.
When fitted into the flexible cap, the locked-in media guard stands freely and securely to the base of your grow bed without leaning or falling over.
