Thanks for the invite. We are just about to start our system. We are still collecting some material to build the grow beds and establish the tank system. Happy to know we have a resource to consult with if there are issues on up start. We will be happy for you to visit once we are established! Our aquaponic project was slowed down because we are also in the process of starting a vineyard and winery. Lots of work to be done and only two of us doing it for now. Once the vines are in the ground we will be redirecting to the aquaponics and would love your assistance!
How is the indexing valve working for you so far?
I'm very glad to have gotten to handle that pump and see how it worked with the indexing valve. Is it still doing the job well? If so I'll be recommending that pump for similar situations instead of the larger Quiet Ones (the QP 4000 definitely beats out the Danner 7 big time but I think the Danner you are running probably beats the comparable Quiet One, especially in the cost of replacement parts. The QP 4000 is only able to run a gravity modified valve in a very limited set of circumstances.)
Have you noticed any difference in the clogging or not clogging of the tubes to the vertigrow stacks?
How bout a picture of the fish tank? Is the water clearing up enough to see the fish?
Cosmo, thank you so much for your kind words and compliments. We too are very greatful for having met you and so much enjoy your company and getting to pick that fabulous brain of yours! And I must say, you possess quite the craftiness and skills yourself. We find your greenhouse and system equally impressive. Looking forward to our next time to hang out and gossip aquaponics! Lol.
Thank you for being a friend. I am very new to the aquaponics and am looking for tanks and everything. I can not be much help to anyone yet but I hope my day will come. I am reading everything I can and when I have a problem I will ask for help. If you have any ideas let me know. I am on a very limited budget being on ss so low cost is important. Thanks again God bless and we will talk later. Harrison
We were trained at Friendly Aquaponics in Honoka'a, HI. Friendly was a great intensive training, four ten hour days. The course is taught in two parts, half day in the classroom and half day at the farm. After completion of the course, we are now liscenced to build a system with Friendly's patented plans. Friendly was the first Aquaponics Farm to be organic certified in the US and they teach you how to do that too. I highly recomend their training, it was worth every penny. We have also become inspired by Growing Power. Check out Will Allen on you tube or on my links page on facebook. growitright aquqponics.
Woohoo! You are our very first order! Thanks so much for that - your order is going in a frame and on our wall. And I love the comment you made. Pretty funny. The video is still about a week away from being done, but we will get the other items in the mail to you tomorrow.
Also, nice job on the call tonight - I think you blew them away with your vertical tower set-up. I was proud to have you representing our community.
