Your avatar isn't very helpful. I believe I remember you from the the association meeting, but my memory isn't as good as it once was.


If you'd like, come over and see our system. It's nearly running, we need only to figure out how to raise water 16'. Lemmeno.

HI Jon-

If you still have the IBC tanks, we could use them for a school project we are setting up around the first of the year. Let me know,, or 303-232-4938

Hey Jon,

Nice to see another local grower!

Hi Jon-

When you use the 1/3 of the IBC for a grow bed, you have to include the metal frame around it. They are flexible and will retain some shape until you fill them and then they bulge out. We also build a wooden stand for the IBC so that is doesn't have to be totally supported by the cut part of the tank, but there are various different designs for this.

Hope this helps.

Glad you iPad is now getting along with the site...or is it the reverse?  Were you at the Denver Botanic Garden volunteer appreciation night?  I"m betting we have a connection somewhere...

Hi Jon,

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Main page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.  And join the Colorado Aquapons group!
