Hey Roger,


The Bug Zapper I am using just stuns them instead of fry's them.  Its a Stinger 1/2 Acre Outdoor Insect Killer.

The drums are still way thicker than the kiddie pools. I forgot to mention to you 2 other issues. The pool only allows for a gravel bed depth of 8 inches. Which is really not that bad. The other issue I am having is with the pipeing for the bell siphone drain. I put a 90 after the pipeing exits the pool then a 1 inch to 1/2 inch reducer to create back pressure to help the siphone to start. Then I increased the pipeing back to 1 inch and another 90 with about an 10 inch piece of 1 inch to drain back to my pond below. After a few monthe this assembly started to sag causeing issues with the bell siphone working properly. The grow bed would sit with water in it until I was able to go out and correct it. This issue will be fixed by tieing the pipeing assembly up level again. I don't know if the drums are hard to get there in Costa Rica or not but I would use them or something else with more meat to it than the Kiddie pool. I have seen videos on Youtube with people useing the drums and the work very well. Sorry this is so long but I want to give you as much info as possible. I don't want to stop you from trying something that may work for you. God knows I am no genius. I don't always see what others do right off the bat. Sometimes I have to hit that brick wall head on before I get it.

Hi Roger,

  The kiddie pool was a temp deal. It is made of very thin plastic. I knew this when I bought it. The weight of the pea gravel started to bow the sides out. I would use the plastic 55 gal drums. They are made of thicker plastic and make a very nice small system or even a large system if you line them up together. I hope this helps you out.

Hi Roger,

I checked out your Monster Directory. Very interesting. Are you the creator of the Legacy product? It's an attractive piece.

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I hope you find it a great place to explore aquaponics. I’ve started the ball rolling with a few general forum topics, and will try to add more on a regular basis, but I’m hoping that you and others will add your own topics as they occur to you. I’ve also added some of my favorite videos and a few random photos…again, please share your favorites with us!

We have just a few simple rules: stay on the subject of aquaponics and keep it cordial (no flaming!). If someone decides to break these rules they will get a warning, and then be banned from the community after that. But of course I’m hoping that never happens!

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
