Please tell us something else about yourself.
38 years of age, I'm living in France as a Freelance artisan (cabinetmaker).
Several years hydropnoic experience and soil gardening, also
kept African cichlids for many years.
I've toyed with Ap systems at home and recently built a serious domestic system for a fellow enthusiast in Nantes Fr. The system was designed, built and installed by myself under my clients requirements of needing to support his family and function as a teaching/educational aid for others. It is comprised of 3 ebb and flow gravel beds 300mm deep with bell syphons, a 57 site 4" pipe nft system, a 48 site vertical tower system, a 48 site floating raft system (all of which under a custom built greenhouse), an 1100L sump sub ground level (covered) and a 2000L fish tank situated within his garage.
All of this I have documented in recent posts.
