Compost Tea System10™
Make your own nutrient-rich compost tea with the Compost Tea System10 from Growing Solutions. Compost tea is the liquid extract from compost, and it is a superior way to nourish your plants and renew the health of your soil. Now you can make 10 gallons of your own high-quality compost tea at a time!
The System10 uses a patented Fine Bubble Diffusion aeration process to aerate your compost tea with 4,000 air bubbles of uniform size and velocity per second through its Fine Bubble Aeration Disc. Seen in action here, the aeration disc keeps a highly aerobic environment for even, odor-free composting.
The Compost Tea System10 is designed for durability, ease of use, and years of safe and consistent operation. Cleanup in between your 10-gallon batches is easy. The tank is removable and can be hosed out, then it's on to the next batch!
Making Compost Tea with the System10 in 3 Easy Steps
- Start with water, off-gassing any chlorine by running the system for 20 minutes
- Add Compost Tea Catalyst, the food source for the composting microbes (a 15-oz tub is included, and more is available separately above)
- Add the composting microbes themselves - either homemade or store-bought compost
After 24 hours, you have 10 gallons of compost tea to spray or soak your plants and soil with for a meal unrivaled in nutrition. Simply dispense the tea through the industrial-grade valve into your watering can or garden sprayer.

About the Compost Tea System10's Patented Fine Bubble Diffusion Technology
Each Fine Bubble Diffusion aeration disc has 4,000 engineered perforations (1mm in size) that provide consistent air bubble size and velocity. The compost tea solution is thoroughly mixed by the Fine Bubble Diffusion aeration process inside the tank, eliminating the need for external agitation. This dynamic aeration process ensures maximum oxygen transfer efficiency, creating an optimal environment for reproduction of beneficial aerobic microorganisms. Each disc's perforations self-seal when the Compost Tea System10 is off, preventing back flow of compost tea into the air manifold.
About the Compost Tea Catalyst
OMRI-listed for quality assurance and organic compliance, the Compost Tea Catalyst from Growing Solutions is a unique blend of ingredients formulated to stimulate diverse microbial growth during aerated compost tea production. Compost Tea Catalyst is a balanced nutrient source that significantly increases the biodiversity and growth of microorganisms found in compost.
