What does RHYTHM CSS sell?
We sell an elite batch delivery fertigation system for automating feed schedules and recipe delivery for small, medium and large scale commercial cultivators. Upgrades are also available for lighting and environment control.
We also offer consulting for cultivation setups that need a more comprehensive introductory to using and integrating their equipment.
Does it only make mixes or actually water the plants?
Both. You can set the system up to just make batches and deliver them to holding reservoirs, or you can directly feed the nutrient batch straight into your drip irrigation system.
Who does Rhythm sell to?
We sell direct to mostly commercial cultivators, specifically cannabis growers.
What kind of equipment guarantee does Rhythm offer?
We offer a standard 1 year warranty, stock most parts and can expedite shipping for critical replacements.
How do I get customer support?
The greatest differentiator that sets Rhythm apart is the customer service. No hard-to-read manuals or generic representatives. You have direct contact with the engineers who are happy to help you when you have questions or should an issue arise.
Can this system handle my entire facility?
Yes, that is precisely what it is designed to do! The Rhythm AFS is designed to take on 100% of the recipe preparation and irrigation for an entire facility, automating the entire process.
Does it need any additional equipment to work?
Yes. Our fertigation solutions are designed to be plumbed into and work in conjunction with pressure compensated drip irrigation systems.
What kind of irrigation system do I need and how do I know what works best?
Schedule 40 PVC in 1” to 1.5” for irrigation lines are common. Many different pressure compensated drip systems are available and our expert engineers will assist you in selecting the right setup for your operation. A great cost effective solution we can recommend is Cannabis Irrigation Supply.
What kind of nutrients work with the system?
Liquid fertilizers. Salt based, synthetic and organic nutrients can work, however, some nutrients work better than others. It is recommended to consult your nutrient manufacturer to ensure your selected nutrient line is designed to work with a drip irrigation system.
Where do the nutrients go and what size containers can be used?
Nutrients are designed to sit adjacent to the machine, on both the left and right sides, behind the machine, or even above it (just not below it.) Any size nutrient container may be used, including 6 gallon jugs, 55 gallon drums and even 275 gallon totes.
What are the facility site requirements?
One dedicated 40Amp 220VAC circuit, a 1” PVC drip irrigation system with pressure compensated drippers, and about 11ft wide x 8ft deep of clear space along any wall.
How many plants can it feed?
As a batch mixing machine, sizing the Batch Series AFS to handle the needs of an entire facility depends mostly on daily water demands. A batch machine takes time to prepare and stabilize recipes, therefore it probably wouldn’t have enough time to feed a facility with 20 rooms watering 16 feeds each per day, everyday. Rhythm's team of engineers will work with you to ensure you are paired with the optimal solution for your facility.
Is Rhythm easy to use?
Absolutely. Rhythm Software is designed with user friendliness in mind, requiring no technical background to operate, however the software is designed to be used by a grower, therefore someone with cultivation knowledge is required. We are happy to walk you through all of the features if you’d like assistance.
Can I install Rhythm myself?
Yes. The Rhythm Batch Series is a packaged machine skid, designed to be installed by anyone with basic PVC plumbing and electrical skills. (Note: please follow all local building codes and requirements. Licensed plumbers and electricians are usually required.)
Comprehensive installation instructions are provided but our customer support and project management team will be available to assist your contractors with the process.
We also include one on-site install technician who will visit once the machine is plumbed to help calibrate the machine and make sure everything is in working order to begin use.
