Our hydroponics lab is pretty modest. It is a 7 foot by 7 foot Rubbermaid shed. To ensure it is protected, we have it connected to our alarm system and it is under 24/7 video surveillance.
We framed it out on the inside with 2x4s and put in fiberglass insulation. Then, we covered that with a layer of Reflectix reflective insulation. We also have some ClosetMaid shelving systems to allow for maximum usage of the vertical space.
There are three isolated power feeds – one for the environmental controls (cooling, heating, and humidity), one for the lights, and one for the pumps. The lights and the pumps are also connected to the alarm system and are controlled using their scheduling features and outdoor Z Wave outlets.
