Temperature

I have my aeroponics setup in my greenhouse. With just the pump going, it maintains water temp an avg of 67 degrees. Sunny days so far has brought the temp up to 75 or so.

At what temp does this begin to cause problems? Is there an easy way to keep this down? I don't want to have to move the system to the basement. Thanks.

RE: Temperature

Look at this chart; above about 25C (75F for the Celsius challenged), oxygen solubility falls way off. I keep mine at approx 72F.
