Hydroponic Systems International has developed various drainage collection systems for hydroponic agriculture that improve crop yield and the quality of obtained yields. With our gutters, we solve various problems that can occur within a hydroponic greenhouse such as unwanted puddling under the cultivation bags, proliferation and transmission of diseases or insufficient root development leading to a decrease in both the quality and quantity of yields. Installations of our systems in more than 25 countries around the world.
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the area devoted to hydroponic cultivation in greenhouses. Indeed, this trend is expected to continue increasing in the coming years, due to all the advantages of this type of cultivation system. Among the system’s advantages is the fact that, by not being soil dependent, the possible appearance of pest and fatigue problems can be avoided. In addition, greater control of the phenological states of the crop, earlier yields and a significant saving in water and fertilisers can be had thanks to the collection and recirculation of what is drained off from irrigation. It is at this point, where Hydroponic Systems employs all its efforts to be at the forefront with new products. The latter expanding the possibilities of access, that farmers have with any type of crop, to the benefits of an optimal collection of drainage water in hydroponics, thanks to Hydroponic Systems’ patented products.
Our gutters are made with 100% virgin polypropylene plus high-quality additives for UV protection. Transformation processes manufacture the gutters with the latest machinery and strict quality controls. Due to this, we can offer different options that adapt to all types of hydroponic cultivation in different substrate types offering a wide range of possibilities, providing customised solutions for efficient drainage control and recirculation.

The accessories created by Hydroponic Systems enable the collection gutters to collect what is drained off and to become a complete system in which all elements are integrated so that they work together (cultivation bag, irrigation pipes, etc.). Hydroponic Systems’ clips provide the system with stability by keeping the gutter straight and attached to the Hydroponic Spacer. They also hold the drip-feed piping inside the system avoiding water leaks and possible breakages due to the work done inside hydroponic greenhouses. They are designed for drip-feed piping that has a diameter of between 16mm and 25mm.
For the correct gutter ling of what is drained off at the end of each line of crops, and so that it can be taken to the channelling pipelines, an Out-Flow piece has been designed. This is a long-lasting piece that allows the attachment of a pipe that will take what is drained off to the network of PVC drainage collection pipes.
Hydroponic Systems has also thought about those agricultural businesses that have small fruit crops. To prevent fruit from falling into the canal, on being taken off the plant, Hydroponic Systems has a Cover piece. This prevents unwanted rotting and obstruction in the collection of what is drained off.
