An important aspect to making the agponic MD unit work is making sure the containers are water tight.  There are a large number of holes made to accommodate the many mounting screws and allow sensor wires to pass from the tank container and grow bed container.  Without addressing this issue early on one will only encounter leaks and problems once the unit is together.

STEP ONE —  The parts


STEP TWO  — Mark where the hole should be before drilling

STEP THREE  — prep to drill

This is a very important step, if you do not take extra careful steps you will crack the plastic with the drill bit and you will be starting over.  Support is needed behind the plastic.

STEP FIVE  —  assembly the parts in the hole
