Aquaponics build #1

We’re well underway with the aquaponics build. The frame is almost done, though I couldn’t take a pic of it almost finished because it came in too dark too quickly. Jelina just managed to capture me hard at work

Like so many good things, my first estimate of squeezing four tubs into the greenhouse was a little ambitious. I decided to go with three and a sump.

The sump is a 200 litre blue plastic drum that will sit under the main tubs. The tubs are 200 litre drums cut vertically (or is it horizontally…). I’m hoping to make the other half drum into an reed bed filter outside of the greenhouse.

Much more to come…
