I don't use it because it is purely hydroponics, thus requiring a constant source of electricity and chemicals in the water. Should there be a failure the plants die pretty quickly. I prefer a living wall with actual soil in the wall connected to a (gravity fed) gray water source (nearest bath sink). This offers a more forgiving environment that uses no new resources.
