We're looking for a piece of equipment or design plans for an automatic way to clean our 4' X 4' styrofoam floats in our hydroponic raft system. Any thoughts?

RE: cleaning

why not just build a small "pond" to float them in and float them in a 20% chlorine solution? It may not make them look pretty, but it will dissenfect them. Of course you'll need to look into how the chlorine interacts with the foam.

RE: cleaning

We tried that but there gets to be too much green buildup especially by the holes. We float them but also have to manually scrub them with a brush which is too time consuming
