Aquaponics – Part 2

After seeing the Aquaponics system that was installed for a family on Costa’s Garden Odyssey, Jacob has been enormously inspired to build his own.

He found some instructions online on how to build one using some new and recycled materials. Every weekend for about a month or so, he has been working like a mad scientist in our shed.

The start of the system

It’s been, as he puts it, a lesson in trial and error. But it’s in the testing phase finally! Testing in essence is the point where we’ve been dumping in water and just seeing if there are any leaks. And of course, there are some minor ones. But nothing massive which is a plus!

Getting there! About half way done at this point.

After a few trips to the random hydroponics places and the largest aquarium shop I’ve ever seen – the progress looks good!

So, Jacob’s mad scientist skills are totally paying off! Soon we will have yummy plants and eventually yummy home grown fish!
