Hello All

My first aquaponic set up.  I am addressing some valid concerns as the building has progressed and will continue to modify as suggestions come in.  I appreciate your feedback!  This is the ratchet strap modification for the buldging in the blue barrels that is a problem.  I went with a 14' ratchet strap and ran it through a 1" PVC pipe cut to each side.  I am hoping the ratchet will allow me to crank it down or ease up as need be.

This is a picture of the full set up ready for water before the ratchet strap modification.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Will you be able to easily get to your fish?

Glad to have helped.  I used the rigid PVC pipe...a little thicker. Might be able to use a board as well.

You sure gave me an ideas to how I might level my 100 gal grow bed which has settled on one side.  Thanks.
