Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

I am new to aquaponics and in the very early stages of my education. In many of the videos I have viewed and in reading on plumbing for systems, it appears that the use of PVC is fairly common. Does anyone have knowledge / information on BPA leaching from the PVC into aquaponic systems and ultimately into the produce and fish? 

I have found some information at the following link to in their 2012 Garden Products Study:, retrieved 1/4/2014.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Dumbass question, is the black irrigation pipe Polypropylene?

Hmm, my brief google search says it's poly-ethylene.....

Both types are manufactured...PP as well as PE...
