Menards is one of my fav stores but not the greatest for hydro stuff.

 

Bins are hit or miss.

 

Cheap timers.

 

No airpumps.

 

Good selection of humidifiers and room heaters.

 

They do have inline booster fans that work well. 4 to 12 inch I believe.

 

Lots of PVC and plumbing accessories.

 

Not sure about the the MH bulbs. I know there selection is CRAP for t5 anything.

 

Overall its a good store, easily can spend money there. They have a decent handtools selection, some foods, and lots of other stuff.

BB, you're a do it yourselfer. If you can't spend 200 at Menards you should be ashamed. Lots of plumbing parts, wire gizmos, and dreams.

 

haha, im sure i can blow it, thats never a problem :)

 

i'm gonna try to get out this week and see what i can see.

 

im thinking about building a permanent 1" PVC system with some kind of quick-release or ball valves to change out/clean buckets when needed. im sure they have everything there i would need :)

It's a shame Michigan has few Menards locations. In other parts of the Midwest they are the true do-it-yourself discount store, priced significantly below Home Depot and way under Lowe's. They are a bit shy on the high end mega bucks marble bath basins and gold faucets others carry (which really spins some yups cranks)for their Mcmansions. Wisconsin and Minnesota are blessed with them, Michigan is unfortunately, not. You got Menard gift cards? Somebody loves you.

They make these screw together junctions in 1'' and put a ball valve on each side of junction.

(close valve-disconnect quick release- open valve to drain.):thumbsu:

 

I used 1 1/2'' because i used bath tub drains as my output.. double gaskets and all... works great^^^^(screw grommets and leaks) they are made concaved so when they are tightend they seal 100% ( But i still used some silicone on the rubber gaskets)

plumbed right to the bath drain..menards has the drains i used 3$ each.
