About

The Hydropot™ has reinvented hydroponics world in a self-contained low-energy. The Hydropot is the world's only fully self-contained soilless growing system that re-oxygenates water for reuse all without the use of conventional power. The Hydropot™ is different from other hydroponic systems by:

- self-contained and portable
- reuses water & nutrients
- re-oxygenates the water
- lower water use
- low-energy

Hydroponics has been around since Babylonian days. The basics of hydroponic growing have not changed until now. The Hydropot™ is revolutionary! It’s the only self-contained hydroponic system that feeds the plant roots nutrients, while oxygenating the water at the same time and it does it so efficiently it can operate by a small solar panel, windmill or even a bicycle pump.

Reb Bieber, inventor of the patented Hydropot™, has revolutionized how people will grow anything anywhere! Reb has been researching and testing for a better, more efficient method of hydroponics. Most systems use lots of water and the water has to be changed often because it become stagnant and pH has to be greatly monitored; while not being very portable and easy to use. The Hydropot™ is a game changer!

There are many other hydroponic systems out on the market, the Hydropot’s patented method of using compressed air—instead of pumping water as all other hydroponic systems operate— the Hydropot™ becomes the only system that won’t clog or fail. The Hydropot™ also looks great anywhere; it looks much like a typical terracotta pot it is visually pleasing being able to be put anywhere:

- on your back deck
- on the Patio
- on a Boat (try doing that with any other hydroponic system)
- on the roof
- in an office
Anywhere you want to grow anything

The amazing Hydropot™ patented system is so efficient and revolutionary that it is going to help solve global starvation. For those that don’t know what hydroponic growing is; hydroponics is growing without soil. Dr. Raviv, the world’s foremost authority in soilless growing, and who literally wrote the book on soilless growing; titled: “Soilless Culture- Theory and Practice” (ISBN#: 978-0444529756)

 “The idea is simple, yet innovative and elegant…. I can understand now why he got an International patent on this idea, since, over my ~30 years of experience in this field, I’ve never saw or heard something comparable…such units can help nourishing people in the third world, where electricity is not available everywhere”. – Dr. Raviv, Newe Ya’ar Research Center in Israel, Dept. of Environmental Horticulture.

As a self-contained unit The Hydropot™ can be put about anywhere: on a deck, roof, on a boat, in your yard, or in regions of the world where the soil can not grow food. As you see it’s revolutionary!

The Backstory:
Reb Bieber, served as an Air Force C-5 load-master in Desert Storm and Desert Shield, he saw first hand in his world travels how many regions of the world were starving because they could not grow food. He saw that there are so many infertile regions of the world where to grow a simple thing like broccoli is impossible. Reb had been growing hydroponically for herbs and vegetables for years, but realized it was difficult, not portable and he had to regularly monitor his systems .

After experimenting for years on methods and other systems existing. He found that no system really solved the problem. So he invested everything he had —including selling his home— to design and build the Hydropot™. With Patents finalized and all research and development completed he is now is ready to launch the Hydropot™ One.

Reb Bieber, inventor/patent holder, shows how portable the Hydropot™ is.

The 'Big-Picture'
Reb Bieber’s vision is bigger than just the Hydropot™ One. The Hydropot™ technology is scale-able. He sees a way to make a dent in global starvation; by allowing a system that’s low-energy, low water use to grow soillessly, the Hydropot™ technology could be that solution. We’ve all seen the ads where they say that if we give a dollar that we can feed a child. There’s old saying “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day….teach him to fish and you feed him for life”. Reb Bieber has built the solution to feed him for life… he wants to give to the world the tool to grow their own food; without soil or need for large amounts of energy & electricity.

Hydropot™ uses much less water. Here's an example how the Hydropot™ used 60% less water than conventional low-water drip line systems.

The plan
Reb plans to build a multi-pot system that so fart in tests uses less than 10 gallons of water and can run from a small solar panel. The result: The Hydropot™ Farmer system, though, to do so he needs to build and sell 100,000 Hydropots; in order to have the funds to produce and manufacture the Hydropot Farmer system. While donating 75% of the NET profits of Hydropot to the GrowAnything.org Foundation. So when someone buys a Hydropot™ online, they know that their Hydropot purchase helps to potentially solve a serious issue in the world.

The Hydropot™ is the technology, and tool, that supports Reb’s goal. As stated, the Hydropot™ uses compressed air, Reb has the plans for a larger systems that work similarly as the Hydropot-One (as shown here on Kiskstarter) that will allow the growing of 144 pots connected to one energy source (air), which can be easily stored and generated by either a windmill, solar panel, or a person ridding a bicycle pumping air into a storage tank. The vision and goal of solving global starvation can be realized by Mr. Bieber with the Hydropot™. This is why he has been donated an acre of land by a Sacramento, CA church, in Ghana which he will use to prove to the world that it can be done efficiently and with no soil. Reb’s dream is to see a child pick food from a plant growing in a Hydropot™ and not need the $1.00 per day any longer.

Why Kickstarter?

With manufacturing, vendors, parts and process already paid by Reb’s huge investment in place; the next step is getting the Hydropot™ to market; we need funds to get the pre-orders and huge interest that’s been requested by stores and individuals. Hydropot™ needs units in hand.

The Hydropot™ is finalized, proven and tested. Hydropot™ has manufactured the initial test runs of Hydropots, all was a great success! This initial R&D, testing and molds has cost Reb over $400,000. The first test runs did find users had so much success that Hydropot™ has made alterations to the original design and improvements that make the Hydropot™ more efficient and user friendly; costing Hydropot™ over and additional $40,000 in re-tooling and manufacturing. It’s been a long five year haul for Reb. This means there is no need for any additional research, product development or any other manufacturing changes…the Hydropot™ is ready to go into production and launch.

Hydropot™ is seeking $100,000.00 (USD), though Reb's goal set here would really help for molding, manufacturing and packaging of the large order Hydropot units to bring to market. This initial funding literally ‘kickstarts’ Hydropot™ with the minimum funding to launch. Of course Hydropot™ would love to have more funding to manufacture a larger quantity of Hydropots, marketing and advertise also. But this initial Kickstarter goal will get the ball rolling and help Hydropot™ push this ball over the mountain to launch, and let Reb start to work on the larger system and potentially be a solution to global starvation. By supporting this Kickstarter you become part of the Hydropot™ vision. Share this link, Tweet your friends…spread the word and let everyone know about the Hydropot™ and how it will let you grow anything… anywhere! 

The Hydropot™ can grow anything...Anywhere! Even in the most hostile of environments.

Risks and challenges

Reb Bieber, inventor/patent holder of Hydropot™ has to-date invested over $500,000 in patents, research & development, production molds, manufacturing and branding. Hydropot™ has a firm grasp on the market and how long the manufacturing takes (average 45 days for 1000 units boxed and ready to sell).

Testing and manufacturing process has been finalized and there are no delays planned for manufacturing. Hydropot™ only produces the highest quality of product. There is no allowance or sacrifice of quality, which is why Hydropot™ has funded all research and development on it’s own. So literally there is zero risk or challenges at this point.
