Active Aqua

Take an active stance on protecting and supporting your indoor garden with Hydrofarm’s inclusive line of Active Aqua products. You’ll find proven components for all your hydroponics needs, from trays to begin germination to chillers that keep your plants and the room they’re in the absolute perfect growing temperature.

Build a solid foundation from the ground up, starting with Active Aqua trays. The trays are built extra deep and from strong material that can support rockwool or stonewool slabs, Hugo blocks, and loose media components including perlite, peat, and starter cubes. Active Aqua trays fight the devastating effects of standing water and enhance plant drainage.

Boost growth with Active Aqua pumps, ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. All Active Aqua pumps are high-pressure, oil-free, and environmentally safe, consuming low power as they work. Enjoy steady airflow output without the noise through the pump’s super-silent multi-level muffler. The Active Aqua pump’s electrical magnetic air compressor is housed in a high-quality aluminum alloy case.

Active Aqua chillers help you lower both the temperature and the noise level in your indoor garden. The chiller’s digital temperature memory system means it will remember your settings in case of a power-down.

Get air circulating in your hydroponics setup and distribute oxygen and nutrients evenly with Active Aqua air stones, which add oxygen through a micro-pore design and promote growth. Air stones alleviate back pressure on your pump, as well as extend the life of your nutrients, keeping roots healthy and thriving.
