William K: A grow bed made of wood? That will rot pretty fast.
Noah Schuler: counter-clockwise motion
Eric Mastenbrook: That grow bed looks amazing! Good job!
Felicia Whitney: Nh has very harsh winters im from there also this would deff benifit me
really thinking about it I have a geodesic dome green house and this would
work perfect thank you.
Taylor Cook: A swirl tank basically makes the water that goes in make a swirling motion
like your toilet. What it does is allow for particles to settle to the
bottom so they can easily be removed. If not removed they will cause excess
ammonia which will kill the fish. And yes I am very happy with this setup.
I have switched to an automatic feeder for the fish which allows me to
ignore it but once a week if I need to when I'm busy.
dlvmark: Did you raise any fish?
Taylor Cook: She was a little hesitant at first about a fish smell...but she also really
enjoys getting tomatoes in the winter. Nothing like a good BLT when it's
Off Grid Gardening: glad i found your channel again! i had to create a new channel. nice video
Jason Parker: Nice system, glad to see that you changed to a vortex filter to remove
particulates. I'm just learning about aquaponics myself, however based on
the chart for the Eco 633 submersible pump you showed it states Total Head
maxes out at 7.9ft(seeing what approx. is 5 - 5 1/2 ft pump height); to get
better flow, you might need to install a bigger pump, decrease the height
it has to pump to(as well as removing the cartridge filter) or add a
booster pump closer to the top to get the Flow that you want.
David W. Reed: @mayorphill man!! I didnt even realize that until I read your post and then
bam!!! Rick Moranis!!
Taylor Cook: It's a great indoor setup. The biggest thing most people seem to see the
benifit of it the fish. Tilapia will go from about a 3" fish (I buy them
for $.50-1 on e-bay) In 3-6 months (depends on your water
temperature...they grow faster in warmer water)...you can harvest your
10-30 tilapia which weigh about 2lbs each which is about 2 1/2 lb fillets.
So the plants are great but also the fresh fish is even better in my
Release the Pain: What is a swirl tank? Are you happy you have this indoor instead of out? I
live in California and winters would be too cold.
Taylor Cook: I have since changed this setup....with the inline filter it gets clogged
way too often. I have since switched to a swirl tank because it's easier to
maintain and clean. We close on our new house in September and I should
have new videos explaining the new system and setup by December. The PVC
for the pump to the grow bed is 1/2"
dalton1981: what does your wife think about having that in the living room? I'm having
a hard time convincing mine to put one of these in our unfinished basement.
I live in NH, so I really can't do it outside unless i take it down at the
end of each summer.
bkpickell: I understand the theory behind Aquaponics, but there is one thing I don't
understand. Most plants require the PH of the water to be 5.5-6.2. And Fish
don't like PH to be that low and will die. Fish like PH to be up around
7.0. So I'm confused how you are keeping your fish alive in low PH water,
or how your plants are receiving any nutrients in the High PH water.
Anonymous Anonymous: for the pump area, do u use 1/2" pvc or 3/4" pvc pipes?
Taylor Cook: This setup is not for weed or any illegal drug. That being said if you
lived in a state that did allow you to grow it legally...I know there are a
few I'm sure it'd do a great job. Although I'm sure marijuana plants grow
taller than tomato plant?
Sethdraven13: Im from NH too bro.. Im setting up a small one this weekend.
Christine Von Lossberg: Hi.great video. My friend told me to tell you that your filter is
backwards. Put a hose on your water pump and you can pull your waterpump
out of the water to clean its filter. Good luck!
frackcha: nice system man!! serial!! :) if you want your pump to pump water higher, a
reasonable solution is to use narrower tube in your 'fill plumbing'.. you
wont get the same flow rate, but you might have enough push left to run
your ancillary outlets..
blackboy424: Very nice and simple set up :) have you mAde any updates??
Anonymous Anonymous: will the lower eco 393 gph work with a 100 gallon tank?
Mary G. Kushner: Thanks a lot for the video. I also have some guidelines to grows up to 10 x
the plants, in half the time, with more healthy plants, while the "fish"
execute all the work...” Check out the following web site for more
jim mccue: I also live in NH and would have to set this up in basement. I would like
to run it year round .
SuperLastMohican: Are you going to grow weed in there? I haven't seen marijuana grown in an
aquaponic system yet. I imagine it would be excellent due to the fish
dusterdude238: Your kitty looks like he's thinking " did I hear Fish?...... mmmm ! hurry
up and put dem fish in dere daddy, I'm's hungwys for fish! " LOL. but any
way, your project sounds very feasible. hope you can work the kinks out.
Taylor Cook: She doesn't seem to mind much at all...although it did take some convincing
at 1st. I had to move so I had to shut it down. But when it was doing
Tilapia it took about 4-7 months to get a 2" tilapia to 2 lbs. was able to
do 30 tilapia at once. Was great to get fresh fish whenever with little or
Mike Elliott: Looks good. Keep us posted.
F1nddatruth: If your system is properly cycled you will not have any problems with
ammonia or nitrate, and the subsequent nitrite will be used by the plants
that's the whole point of this system. You should look into the nitrogen
cycle of aquariums. Happy Farming
mayorphill: I love your Rick Moranis impression!
