Sorry I did not see your post.  I am heating my tank water to 75 degrees.  The heater runs for a little while in the early dawn hours.  I'm hoping to keep the tilapia growing through the winter.  Will see if warm roots helps too.

Would love to come take a look at your set up. I am still trying to decide on raft or medium system

Hi George, thanks, glad you like the system.  This is my first time at aquaponics, and I am really happy with the results.  We fired the system up for the first time December 12th 2011, and have harvested a lot of produce already, and have had a few fish dinners.

Hi George,

You can get a pot still for just distillation, living in florida you probably dont need the heat for a greenhouse.  Look up Rainier Distillers on the internet.  He built the distillation component for my stove.  He builds all kinds of stills and can fix you up.

Hum, I guess it must just take one nut to know another.  Or you aren't as nutty as you think?

good Luck with it.

Sometimes the bulkhead fitting isn't tightened up all the way when you get it.  Usually you just need to give the nut a slight tighten up.  But you might want to make sure there is no grit between the tank wall and the gasket or the gasket and the flange of the bulkhead fitting on the inside of the tank.  Make sure it's all clean and then tighten it up again.
