Safe cement sealer

Started this discussion. Last reply by Phil Kabza Dec 17, 2012. 3 Replies

I have cement swimming pool that I plan to stock with fish for my 'ponics.  Do I need to seal it?  If so, any foodsafe submersible sealers that are also inexpensive that you recommend? Continue

I am in the process of converting my above ground pool to a fish tank.  I have powerwashed it and sealed all the cracks (minor).  I feel I should seal it with something but am not quite sure what is…Continue

Tomato root ball

I have a flood and drain bed where I planted 6 tomatoes (too many, I've found).  They are huuuge and the rootballs are growing on top of the media now.  They've just started fruiting so I had to take…Continue

"My 'pond' is a converted pool of 35000 gallons so it might take several teaspoons.  Do you buy these products separately?  Is there a particular ponics-safe brand?"

"Does anyone know of a resource/map that shows all the current commercial aquaponics operations in the U.S.?  I'm wondering just how widespread it is.  Seems the more I look, the more prevalent the practice is becoming."

troughs

I have a large system with a couple of media beds and a long trough that has been in operation almost a year now.  Everything has worked great except for growth in the trough.  Growth in the trough has been very slow until the past couple of weeks when it has seemed to finally support some good steady growth.  I wondered if anyone knows if it takes a while to get the trough chemistry right, even though everything else is good.  Maybe it is just a better time of year and the months of tweaking…See More

Good morning Mo. I'm in Gainesville also between Gainesville & Newberry. I'm just braking ground on our hoop green house. We should talk maybe we can both benefit from the conversation. I'm an old guy but fact is we never stop turning. I had white tilapia shipped in from Kansas but that was before I discovered the Aquaponics web site. In any case I'm going to put all my contact information here below so that you can contact me if you like.  Evening after dark is probably best.  House number is   472-9513
