Hay Patrick,  My tower system has been ever changing but the Zipgrow towers are a flexible element for modular design.  It can be as minimal as a single bucket under a tower with a little pump on up to hundreds of towers in a commercial system.


What sort of scale are you interested in?  A single 5' hanging Tower Retails for $89.95 Though I'm currently running a sale.


A 50 gallon stock tank with frame, 4 towers, plumbing and pump that could be hooked up as an add on to an aquaponic system would be about $700 plus shipping Some items would be cheaper for you to get locally so to really give you an idea about costs specific to your situation you might want to send me a message so I could work with you on what you want and get you a quote that will serve you best.


Or perhaps you want to just stop by and see examples seeing as you are pretty local, I'm only up in Mount Dora.

I should say, TC what does your tower system consist of and how much does it cost to have one or some installed?

What is your tower system?

Comment by TCLynx on November 26, 2011 at 5:19pm

Didn't sell much but talked to lots of people and gave out a bunch of cards.  I expect a couple of those might lead to a tower system install somewhere and there was a teacher interested too.

Well, how did it go TC?  Did ya have fun, are you hoarse?  Did ya sell lots of stuff?

Comment by Alli K. on November 26, 2011 at 5:08am
Have fun today, TC. Good luck :)

TC, you are one of a kind.  I am sure that you will do well, but the real fun is going to be telling everyone what you are doing.  Take a notebook and have everyone sign in with their emails.  Then tommorrow night, start your first email list.  Do like Tonya and Gina do, set up a base buying group.  Even if they don't buy today, let them know what you will be selling in the future and on what day.  Best of Luck!!!  :D

I'm sure the Zipgrow towers will draw people at least out of curiosity and I'll have lots of Lufa with me for low cost things people can buy (and they make great Gifts) So hopefully tomorrow will at least be good advertizing as long as my voice lasts explaining about aquaponics all day.

Best of sales TC!  I'm sure you will do well at the market and will develop a following in no time.


Comment by TCLynx on November 25, 2011 at 5:12pm

Wish me Luck guys, I'm taking stuff to market for the first time Tomorrow.

I don't think I'm very prepared but what better way to find out what I need than to go and find out what I'm missing!  (Luckily the market is only like two miles from my house so I can send John back for stuff if I need.)
