Hi everyone, brand new to the community, been running an aqua farm since Feb 2010.  Wondering if anyone here has any experience revamping a portable farms system?  did some reading on the site and found a comment about a few others experiencing what I went through.

 

Thanks

Sorry guys, I don't get on the computer enough, I will post some of my findings in the good bad and ugly group, I was trying not to throw mud, just wanting to find some others who have these units, I don't think I'm going to find many though.  Murray, no harm in asking, there's almost too much to list here, but not much about the way it was designed is the same.  lots of add on's and changes.

Sorry, my bad.   I must be having a senior moment.  I should have read further down the thread.

I think he means that the system needs to be amended... to actually work Murray...

Hi Alexander, What do you mean "revamp"  Is there some aspects you feel need amendment to suit your application?

Alexander, you might want to post something in the Good, Bad and Ugly group - http://aquaponicscommunity.com/group/thegoodthebadandtheugly/forum/....  This kind of warning is really the reason why it is there.

Indeed, if you google around you'll find many people have had bad experiences with the "Portable Farm" systems... and frankly I wouldn't touch them.. even if I had the exorbitant amount of money required to buy one.. and was prepared to operate them without any level of ongoing support... or lack of any knowledgable support...

Galvanized Tanks? what were they thinking, besides profits?

I suppose I should have given a little more detail in my first comment (sorry about that).  I found a link on the community showing some of the reviews about P.F. and was hoping to find some others here who have used the Portable Farm system.  Short version is that we have had to change quite a few things with the units, not the least of which are the galvanized tanks that were installed for the fish.  It has been such a long and expensive process so far I am really hoping to avoid anymore surprises with failures in the systems operation.  Sorry for the confusion.
