So this is my first attempt at a 64qt monotub. I had a great first flush! Not a very pretty canopy, but tons of fruits. Now, I want to rehydrate the sub to prep for the second flush, and noticing the bag will not hold the weight of the sub if I try to lift it out of the tub. I don't want to tear up the sub in the process of pulling it out. Any recommendations? How do you guys prep large bulk subs for multiple flushes? Is it even necessary? Thanks

I typically design my tubs so that I can pour the water directly into the tub until the substrate starts to float.... I just let it sit like that until it has re-hydrated and then pour out the water, Presto-Bango...  I do the same thing with bags... It just seems easiest that way...

 

Long ago, in yester-year... I would fill a larger container with water, remove the substrate and plunk er right into the larger, water filled reservoir...

 

These days I try to keep things as simple as possible... The fewer pieces of equipment and containers the better... If I can accomplish my goal without having to use another tool or container, that is what I do... Cleaning tubs and other receptacles gets tedious fast...

I've done the same as Pjammer24, but have also added some weights on either side. A fully colonized sub is pretty contam resistant, so usually something metal is good enough. Take a look around your local thrift store for hand weights, cowbells, etc.

I think this is overkill... They hydrate pretty well without being fully submerged...

I am thinking I will just fill the tub up with water as high up as the holes will let me and just keep a weight on top(maybe my smaller 6qt PC filled with water) to keep the sub submerged. Thanks fellas

I have always drilled a hole on the bottom of the tub and used a cork to seal it for dunking. The trash bag keeps it pretty clean until a dunk is needed and I cut a hole in the bag when it is time to dunk. Then pull the cork to drain it. Works like a charm.

Yup. I like to rehydrate right in the tub I am using. Drilling or melting a hole on one side in the corner is a good idea. You can plug it with a cork or if you have spare cash, that flexiseal tape really does keep out water. Stuff is really waterproof, amazing.

Regular duct tape will work for a while, too.

Great idea thanks y'all. I've got the tub filled up right now and hadn't thought about how I was gonna drain it to be honest. I was thinking I was just gonna tilt the entire tub to pour out the water and that sounded like a shit show waiting to happen. Glad i signed in!  :biggrin:‚Äč
