High Water Level Siphon Outlet

Posted on August 31, 2010 at 8:00pm 2 Comments

Its been a long time since last I post anything here.

This post is on a new attachment that I made for the siphon in operation at very high water level in fish tank. Originally what I am trying to achieve is silencing the siphon outlet, however upon doing so with high water level situation the siphon operation and aeration of tank is compromise.

What I made here is a simple attachment that if required can be added to the siphon outlet silencing…

Thank you

Hi Affnan,

Just wanted you to know I tried a modified version of your High Water Level Siphon Outlet.  It's very quiet.  I can't even tell when my bell siphon is running!  Thank you again.

Hi Affnan,

More than 2 months and your bell siphon is going strong with no hiccups.  Thank you for putting all your effort into design and testing!

Hi Affnan,

Thank you so much for your response. I was reading your website and watching your videos for hours last night. I feel I have a very firm understanding of what I have to do now.

Hello Mr.Affnan
I want to ask you again about the hole from the higher tank to the lower growbed,the growbed ist h30 cm l 1056 cm w 72 cm 180 l
In Mr, Murrays CD the hole in the Fishtank was very high almost over the water in your Design it was very low and in the water.
I have a 360 l acryltank 60x60 180 cm.I think about a 6 cm fiting for a 50PVC pipe but where ang is it big enough?

Hi Affnan,

there is a new forum topic started around plumbing, basically asking for more info around plumbing a new AP system. Of course I think of you when it comes to plumbing. Can you jump in there and make some suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Affnan!

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I'm a big fan of the work you have done and shared around bell siphons, and aquaponics in general.

I hope you find this community a great place to meet fellow aquapons, share videos and photos, chat, and learn. I’ve started the ball rolling with a few general forum topics, and will try to add more on a regular basis, but I’m hoping that you and others will add your own topics as they occur to you. I’ve also added some of my favorite videos and a few random photos…again, please share your favorites with us!

We have just a few simple rules: stay on the subject of aquaponics, keep it cordial (no flaming!), and conduct no business or advertising, except making announcements about events and classes that are relevant to the community. If someone decides to break these rules they will get a warning, and then be banned from the community after that. But I’m hoping that never happens.

I’m new to forum management and this is a new forum, so any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
