We are here to push the movement of aquaponics in a forward direction. Our primary focus is help you in your adventure with aquaponics by providing you with the highest level of information. Aquaponics is still in its infancy and we predict that it will be the go to method of farming by many families and urban farmers. Our job is to ensure that they are taught correctly.

  1. Im building a system inside an old concrete poured pool…. built a concrete wall in the deep end to split it in half, about 2 ft high and about 10 ft wide.. decked it all out and will pump up to swirl filter and bio filter, then into my dwc beds… from there a series of small conected trays goin down the staircase to the deep end, filling the trays then will be bell siphoned back down to the fish pond… wish i could put a pic on here…

  2. I love the idea of a 30,000 g fish pool! personally I would go for it! would need lots of wave makers and power heads. but if your not a big fish fan then just listen to the aqua god…

  3. If I would have to start with these options I would place my aquaponics setup inside my pool. Fishtank in the shade, growbed in the sun. If it gets to hot you can cover the pool with shadowcloth. Make it a sunken garden of eden with nice smelling herbs and eatable flowers.

  4. Not sure if it was just me, but it sounded the audio this time was all in the left ear and very low. You may need to adjust your microphone or video editing software or something for the next one to get it right again.

  5. Lol. I have a 30000 gallon pool made into a koi pond. Then from my sieve filter system I run water from there to my garden in the ground. Works great . But I'm planting in soil and watering by drip from swimming pool koi pond. Lol.

  6. I am going to make an aquaponic system in a pool and succeed, just to prove you wrong, aquaponics is not rocket science, rocket science is rocket science, and tell you what, Elon Musk made more complex things happen although knuckle heads told him he couldn't, but this is aquaponics, I've seen people make it worse places, and succeed, it is a matter of learning and documenting for future generation to make use of the info. a pool is not going to be like asking whether or not fusion is possible. Sorry but you are teaching the wrong things, make use of what you got, and don't waste opportunity, that pool is opportunity. End of story.

  7. I have a pool and converted to aquaponics. It does not work. 2 years of trying. I am a bisque head. It make a good greenhouse and fish on a hobby scale with everyday problems.

  8. In regards to the pool question rather than using it for holding water could he convert it into an underground greenhouse? Use it to house the Aquaponics setup?

  9. What about using the pool as a sump. With the interrogated pump and the pool already really low it seems like it would be okay. Especially if you put the solid filter and bio filter before the water goes into the pool. If you fill the pool only partially, say waist high you could easily clean it with high water pants on.
