The silencer & mixer tube is connected from above to the corners of the nursery level, to which the Plantsteps are attached.
The purpose of the tube is to dampen the rustle of water returning to the tank. The pipes also ensure that the oxygenated water returning from the Plantsteps to the water tank circulates to the bottom of the water tank and mixes the oxygen and fertilizers of the plant nutrient water evenly.
The pipe has a diameter of 50 mm and is made of durable and food grade polypropylene. There is an opening in the middle of the pipe through which the water hose rises from the water tank pump to the Plantsteps.
